What’s New in IntelliJ IDEA 14.1


The built-in decompiler, added in IntelliJ IDEA 14, gets debugger capabilities. Easily step into libraries you don't have the sources for – without any third-party plugins.

Inline Debugger

IntelliJ IDEA 14 introduced a brand new inline debugger that entirely changes the way you debug your code. Now it shows variable values right in the editor, next to their usages.


This update ships with a brand new Extract Functional Parameter refactoring, as well as extensions to existing refactorings including Extract Method, Make Static, Change Signature, and Safe Delete.

User Interface

When you want to completely focus on your work and not be bothered by anything else, switch into the Distraction Free Mode. Also, HiDPI support for Windows and Linux is now available.


IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 keeps pace with the latest versions of all supported frameworks. It also introduces support for new ones including Spring Boot, OSGi, Thymeleaf and several others.

Built-in Tools

Please welcome Docker support; better integration with Gradle, Maven, Git and Mercurial; new tools for working with databases; and lots more.

Customer Experience

It was really catching on fast, so we purchased a license for everyone who wanted it. That turned out to be pretty much the entire organization.

What was simply the best Java IDE on the planet is now also simply the best Groovy/Grails IDE on the planet. Congrats to the JetBrains guys and check it out.

Most of our engineers do not get any errors at all during compiling because IntelliJ IDEA catches them all during editing. The time we save is remarkable.
