Subject Re: Beta-releases for particular features.
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2016 14:57:52 GMT

I don't think that features like LINQ and ODBC need the same approach
as IDEA EAP. IntelliJ has EAP because new features may have bugs
or usability issues. With LINQ and ODBC our main concern are not bugs,
but unsupported use cases that we did not think of. Known use cases
are covered with tests.

Beta releases may not get enough attention to gather feedback.
I think we should release these features right away and gradually add
for missing use cases, if any emerge. We are not going to change API or
break compatibility while adding these things in future.

Furthermore, LINQ is only a usability feature. Users can always switch to
raw SQL
if something can't be expressed in LINQ.
