JetBrains Releases IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 Milestone 2

M2 introduces Maven integration, a visual Dependency Structure Matrix, access to the Groovy and Grails plugin, and much more

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- JetBrains(R), the creator of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, has announced the general availability of Milestone 2, another step forward on the path to version 7.0 of its award-winning Java IDE (integrated development environment), IntelliJ(R) IDEA.


"Milestone 2 showcases a major feature set of the upcoming new version," said Sergey Dmitriev, JetBrains CEO, "and judging by the feedback from our Early Access Program (EAP) members, IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 is going to be another big step forward for IDEs."

With Maven integration, access to the Groovy and Grails Plugin (JetGroovy), and the new visual Dependency Structure Matrix (DSM), Milestone 2 is worth looking into. The DSM is particularly interesting for anyone who wants to explore dependencies between program parts (modules, classes, etc.), letting you spot potential problems at the top level and then drill down to individual details.

Of course, there are a lot more additions introduced to this release of IntelliJ IDEA -- a host of productivity-enhancing features and improvements to make everyday development easier. Most remarkable of them include improved Java EE Support, automated refactorings, code analysis, version control integrations, debugging, search, usability, and, of course performance.

Other noticeable feature highlights are: -- Enhanced Spring AOP, Hibernate and JPA support -- Better Hibernate-Spring integration -- More flexible Version Control operations with ClearCase UCM and Perforce offline mode, plus improved change list management -- Multiple new refactorings -- Revamped project configuration with automatic Facet detection and upgrade from earlier versions

The latest build and more detailed information about all the new features can be found at

Milestone 2 is a preview of Version 7.0, which is scheduled for release by the end of 2007. Current owners of IntelliJ IDEA 6.0 can take advantage of all the added features in IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 M2, for commercial use, until January 1st, 2008. Of course, a 30-day free evaluation is available for anyone who'd like to get a sneak peak.
