IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP Improves Editor and VCS Integration

IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP offers a slew of enhancements and fixes. The editor and VCS integration both are much improved, and a neat feature is the ability to move statements left and right with ease.

Every week we publish a fresh IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP. Today’s build, among bugfixes that address issues you reported, brings a few improvements to Git integration and IntelliJ IDEA heart, the code editor.

Move Statements Right and Left

We already have a way to move code statements up and down: Ctrl + Shift + Up/Down (Cmd + Shift + Up/Down for OS X.) They come in handy when you’re rearranging code statements. Sometimes, however, it might be useful to move them left or right (when you’re, for example, changing the order of attributes of an XML element, method parameters, or elements in an array initializer).

To make it possible we’ve added two new actions: Alt + Ctrl + Shift + Left/Right (Alt + Cmd + Shift + Left/Right for OS X).

VCS Integration

Two new actions to help you work with Git branches, available via the Branches popup: Checkout with Rebase and Rename.

The Checkout with Rebase action is useful if you don’t want to waste your time on extra files synchronization and compilation when you do two operations: Checkout and then Rebase.

git-operations

If you do an interactive rebase via the VCS → Git → Rebase main menu, IntelliJ IDEA now automatically stashes and unstashes local changes and assists with resolving conflicts.

The experience of applying patches has also been improved: you can now recover from the patches that could not be applied because of conflicts.

We hope you’ll find all these enhancements useful. Share your impressions and concerns in the EAP discussion forum, and reports bugs in our issue tracker.
