I lost all my hopes about Intellij IDEA. 7.0 version is not a progress at all. It has introduced (or rather reintroduced) serious bug in debugger.


My Java virtual machine hangs occassionally while debugging through Intellij IDEA 7.0.3. Eclipse and Intellij IDEA 6.0.6 works  perfectly OK with the same JVM.


I used IDEA since version 3. Now I am completely unhappy about the Intellij IDEA. It is not moving in right direction.

Hmm - i'd just disagree with the last comment... maven, groovy, ruby support is exceptional. Keep it up!

Javalobby may not be right forum to continue this conversation - But I could not resist to comment.

Yes, It is marked as resolved. But what is provided is nothing but work around. My point is more about
having a release with important issues (like debugger causing JVM hang) open.

I do agree that Idea 7.0 has cool features and that is the reason why I am trying 7, though my Idea 6.0 is working perfectly fine.

Though eclipse do not have this bug, I am not even trying to use eclipse, but only trying to use Idea, speaks how much I like Idea.


I thank you for the update.

Excellent release. Especially the reversion of the debugger layout to something more like the one used in 6.0 is a major improvement for me.
