Prague, Czech Republic, August 1, 2005 — JetBrains™, Inc., creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing applications, today announced the release of IntelliJ IDEA 5.0, the newest version of the company's award winning Java IDE (integrated development environment).
IntelliJ IDEA 5.0 is a professional-grade tool for developers working in situations where time is money and sustained productivity is a measure of success. Staying always in close touch with those who use the IDE daily, Jetbrains carefully designed IntelliJ IDEA 5.0 to bring out the very best in Java development amplifying and validating their community-oriented approach with dedicated customer support for which the company is noted.
"Version 5.0 continues the JetBrains history of changing how developers think about programming," said Eugene Belyaev, JetBrains president and CTO. "Developers, like athletes, sometimes refer to being 'in the flow' or 'in the zone,' where time recedes into the background and a person's abilities open to their fullest. Tools that help developers reach this superstate are invaluable because developer productivity skyrockets, as those who use IntelliJ IDEA often attest."
