Prague, Czech Republic, February 6, 2006 JetBrains, creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing applications, today announced the release of IntelliJ IDEA 5.1, the latest version of the company's award-winning Java IDE (integrated development environment). IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 is a professional-grade tool for developers working in situations where time is money and sustained productivity is a measure of success.
Perhaps the most significant new functionality in Version 5.1 is an unprecedented level of support for internationalization of new and existing Java applications. The main new features and enhancements in IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 include:
JetBrains has created a Japanese localization of IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 using the new i18n functionality. The localization is being released concurrently with the original English version through XLsoft K.K. - the JetBrains reseller in Japan. Information (in Japanese) is available at http://www.xlsoft.com/jp/products/JetBrains/.
Also included in this release are additional inspections plus numerous smaller-scale improvements. Details about new features and enhancements are available online at the JetBrains web site at: http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/features/newfeatures.html.
"Millions of Java applications now out there do not, or cannot, realize their full potential in today's global marketplace because a single human language was 'hard-coded' into them," said Alex Tkachman, JetBrains Director of Marketing. "Until now, it simply has been too difficult and expensive to localize many of these applications. JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 provides a technologically sophisticated, cost-effective and business-efficient means to open new horizons and marketing opportunities for many applications."
The trailblazing IDE recently garnered yet another major industry award, the Java Developers Journal 2005 Readers' Choice Award for Best Java IDE. IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 is priced at $499 per license and is available for purchase on the JetBrains' web site at www.jetbrains.com/idea/. The IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 upgrade is available free of charge to registered users of version 5.0 via download from www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/.
