Description Petr Jiricka 2012-09-22 11:49:16 UTC
Bug 217817 (caused by a JDK issue) causes the IDE to hang when running on JDK 7 lower than update 10 on Mac OS X. I suggest that because of this problem, the IDE should refuse to start, and instruct the user to either upgrade to JDK 7u10 or newer, or use JDK 6.
Comment 1 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2012-09-24 08:36:27 UTC
This change can be implemented only after 7u10 is finally released.

Thus not for 7.3 Beta, nor 7.3 Beta 2. For these releases a release notes item should be added.
Comment 2 Petr Jiricka 2012-11-05 09:36:07 UTC
Looks like we may want to do this on other platforms as well besides Mac, because of bug 213926.
