JetBrains has released its regular update of its IDEs including IntelliJ IDEA, WebStorm, RubyMine, PyCharm, GoLand, DataSpell, DataGrip, and other tools, such as the latest 2023.3 version of Datalore Enterprise. The headline improvement in all of them is a new AI Assistant.

This is still in limited access, and adds features including an integrated AI chat, code explaining, automated documentation generation, name suggestion, and commit message generation.


The AI Assistant is an upgrade to the existing built-in Profiler, which now goes further in providing in-editor performance hints, and makes code profiling better. The assistant also adds GitLab integration to streamline the development workflow, allowing developers to work with Merge Requests directly from the IDE.

There are also specific improvements for Java, Scala, JavaScript, and Python. Java developerts get new inspections and code analysis improvements, as well as enhanced code highlighting and navigation for format strings.

JavaScript developers will see support for CSS nesting and for Vue Language Server, and new live templates for React hooks.

Python improvements include inlay parameter name hints, new live templates for Django forms and models, extended support for fixture override in pytest, and an option to collapse type hints.

Alongside the improvements for specific languages, this update improves support for Kubernetes, Docker, Spring, GraphQL, HTTP Client, and database tools. There's a new tool for generating shared indexes, and JUnit continuous testing for Gradle and Maven projects.

Other elements of the suite including GoLand, WebStorm, DataSpell, RubyMine, PyCharm, DataGrip and Datalore Enterprise all have their own improvements. GoLand gets adding automatic module downloads on project open and go.mod file changes, while RubyMine enhances Turbo-Rails support. The JetBrains team says PyCharm gets notable updates including integration with the Black formatter, endpoints tool window for Django, new live templates for Django forms and models, and Run Anything for enhanced flexibility, as well as improvements for the Python language
