Wow, I must admit that the latest news from JetBrains takes me quite by surprise! But what a sweet surprise it is!
Scala and Git support out of the box you say? This is more than welcome – now the next generation development experience is enabled out of the box.
I can’t help but wonder why they did it though? Growing pressure from Netbeans and Eclipse? I’ve always thought that Idea was the better of the three – thus expecting it to generate a fine revenue? Perhaps not – or perhaps JetBrains had a sudden fit of philanthropy? Or perhaps open source is just a superior development model. No matter the true motivation I am pretty hyped about this 🙂
