Illuminated Cloud brings the modern feature set of JetBrains' powerful IntelliJ IDEA and WebStorm IDEs to Salesforce development. Illuminated Cloud not only saves you time with its intelligent auto-completion for all Salesforce programming languages and metadata types, but it also recognizes issues in your code and offers suggestions for how to correct them. With Illuminated Cloud's refactoring capabilities, you'll be able to own and evolve your Salesforce code base like never before.

Recent change notes
Issue 958 - Prospective fix for an issue when commenting out a large block of code in WebStorm. Issue 965 - Fixed an issue with multi-line @param tags during internal ApexDoc generation. Added an Add Clarifying Parentheses code intention to help clarify binary expressions in composite expressions. Just type Alt+Enter (Windows/Linux)/Opt+Enter (Mac) while the caret is over any expression and you should be prompted for the intention. Note that there is one known issue with logical expressions not always being grouped together properly. I'll address that in a very near-term release. Added a workaround for an issue with PMD 6.2.0 where it would fail due to an XML parse error. Note that this may cause issues with earlier versions of PMD, so all users are advised to upgrade to 6.2.0+ if problems occur. Fixed a parser issue with ternary expressions in Visualforce/Lightning formulas. Added missing process() methods to System.Approval.
