IntelliJ IDEA Aurora Easter Egg

I accidentally discovered a mini easter egg in the latest IntelliJ IDEA Aurora beta (build 915) today:

To reproduce, type:

Integer x;

Now change the second line and add "String x." before the y - you should see a dropdown similar to the one above...

and for the record - they're right: IntelliJ Idea Rulezzz! :-).

If you're doing Java development and have never tried IntelliJ, you don't know what you're missing - run, don't walk, to and download the early access version for the next release. They have free temporary license keys while the product is still in beta, which should give you plenty of time to decide whether you wish to purchase it upon release. Chances are, you will.

Hi Luke. Nice find and I totally agree. IDEA just rulz!! :)

Can't wait for the 4.0 release. Dying to see all the EAP features implemented into a real production release.
