JetBrains has announced the first Public Preview of the free Community Edition of IntelliJ IDEA. Starting with the upcoming version 9.0, IntelliJ IDEA will be offered in two editions: Community Edition, free and open-source, and Ultimate Edition. The Community Edition is expected to remove the barrier to a wider use of IntelliJ IDEA for pure Java development — its price tag. This edition is not only free, but is fully open-sourced.
