Java News from Tuesday, February 3, 2009

JetBrains has released IntelliJ IDEA 8.0.1. This seems to fix a hundred assorted bugs. IDEA is $599 payware (up from $499). Upgrades are $299. At my day job, I'm mostly using Eclipse 3.4 lately, though I do occasionally switch out to IDEA for very large refactorings across tens of thousands of classes that Eclipse can't handle and IDEA can (barely).
