The latest update to IntelliJ IDEA has been released by JetBrains, with improvements including a new notification tool, a better new project wizard, and a dependency analyzer.

IntelliJ IDEA is a well-known Java IDE for web, desktop and mobile development, and the updated version is part of the regular update cycle.

The Dependency Analyzer aims to make it easier to manage dependencies and resolve conflicts by providing extensive information regarding all Gradle and Maven dependencies, including transitive ones, used in your project and subprojects. This should mean developers can detect conflicting dependencies and resolve them, filter out identical dependencies and see their presence in different libraries.

The New Project wizard has been revamped so that you can now quickly launch an empty project; use the pre-configured options for Java, Kotlin, Groovy, and JavaScript; or use generators if you are working on more complex projects.

The IDE has a new Notifications tool window that replaces the Event Log instanсe. The developers say the new window will make notifications more visible and better organized to more clearly highlight important notifications from the IDE.

Inlay Hints have also been improved to provide better insights about your code within the editor. The list of displayed metrics now include inheritors, usages^ code authors, and related problems. The metrics are all enabled by default now and can be modified in Inlay Hints settings.

Markdown support has also been improved, so developers can run commands from Markdown files. If a Markdown file contains instructions with commands that you need to execute in your terminal, you can run those commands directly from the Markdown file.

Support for Java has also been improved, with changes to the default Surround with try/catch template so that its usage doesn't swallow exceptions. Instead, the template re-throws an exception wrapped into a RuntimeException​​.

IntelliJ IDEA 2022.1 is available now.
