IntelliJ IDEA 10 Is Released

Posted by editor on December 9, 2010 at 5:09 PM PST

IntelliJ IDEA was just released. JetBrains Marketing and PR Assistant Eugenia Dubova described the new release as focusing on enhancing IntelliJ IDEA's "depth and usability" (while previous versions focussed on expanding the product feature set). In an email messsage, Eugenia provided the following overview of the new release:

IntelliJ IDEA 10 brings many improvements for already supported technologies and frameworks including Spring, GWT, Groovy/Grails, and Flex/ActionScript, while adding new ones like Spring Roo, AspectJ and ColdFusion.

The IDE now offers comprehensive support for the latest Google Android SDK and modern Android development practices such as unit testing. Moreover, Android support is now also available in the free Community Edition.

In a press release, IntelliJ IDEA project lead Max Shafirov describes the decision-making process and course of action that led to Version 10:

During the last few years we've seen a boom of new cool technologies that every developer wanted to use. And IntelliJ IDEA has been on the cutting-edge, supporting them all. Last year the industry settled down somewhat on a stack of technologies used for application development, and we took this chance to review IntelliJ IDEA from the user experience perspective. We revisited the most common actions that developers perform dozens or hundreds of times a day and made them smarter, faster and easier to use.
