JetBrains has released IntelliJ IDEA 15, with improved Java 8 lambda debugger support, a better user interface for running tests, enhanced JVM frameworks support (Spring 4.2, Hibernate 5.0, Grails 3.x, and Arquillian), TypeScript 1.6 and TSLint integration, and initial support for Angular 2. JetBrains' Kotlin language has been added as a supported language, the Scala plugin has been updated to support SAM (single abstract method), Groovy now has @Builder AST transformation support, and the newest features in Android Studio 1.3 are also included. IntelliJ IDEA also includes all the components of JetBrains' 0xDBE SQL database IDE.

JetBrains has published a What's New in IntelliJ 15 guide that includes more details and some short videos highlighting the most important changes such as the new "gutter icons", that provide more visibility and control of tests and applications right from the editor window.

The gutter is more interactive and now allows running applications and tests
