Projects

Import/Export ZIP

New items under the File menu let you save a project (or tree of projects) as a ZIP file - excluding build products - and conversely unpack a ZIP and open any projects found inside.

Collapse All

The blank area in the Projects and Files tab now has a context menu item to collapse all nodes.

Ant

Command-line equivalent

When running an Ant process, the closest equivalent command line is displayed at the top of the Output Window for convenience.

Debug target

You can now run the Ant debugger from the context menu of a target node.

Maven

Bundled version

The bundled version of Maven is in the process of being upgraded to 3.0.4 (currently in an RC).

Repository browser

The list of repositories has been moved under the Services tab rather than needing its own window.

The actions available on artifact version nodes has been expanded and made more consistent, notably including the ability to download sources and Javadoc.

Quick Search hits for Maven artifacts now select the version node here, rather than opening the multiview. You can still open the multiview by double-clicking the node if you want.

Dependency display

Non-classpath dependencies are now shown under their own nodes.

Show Dependency Graph has been replaced with Open POM; the graph is shown as a tab in the pom.xml editor window.

New archetype wizard

The wizard panel for selecting an archetype (to create a new project) has been rewritten and now features a search field.

Source/Javadoc attachment

Automatic attachment of Source/Javadoc will now search the Maven repository for matches if your binary JAR is identical to one in the Maven repository, even it is somewhere else on disk (say, in a library directory of an Ant-based project).

Hudson

View config.xml

A new action on a job lets you view its raw configuration data quickly.

Quick-search provider

You can now jump to the node for a Hudson job from the Quick Search toolbar.

Java EE

JPA Support

JPQL validation is added for named queries. Image:Jpqlvalidation0.png

Version Control

Search History redesigned

Search history view in Git, Mercurial and Subversion version control systems is now more intuitive and individual revisions are easier to inspect.

Mercurial

Queues support

The IDE now supports Mercurial Queues, you can now create, refresh and finish patches, switch between individual patches in a queue and review patch diffs directly from the IDE.
