It is important to keep the plugin up to date. Newer versions include bug fixes, new features, and some recipes require latest version to work correctly.
Updating the plugin¶
This can be done in IntelliJ's list of plugins:
macOS: IntelliJ IDEA | Preferences | Plugins
Windows and Linux: File | Settings | Plugins
IntelliJ might not show that an update is available and the IDE needs to be restarted to make it force reload the list of plugins and their versions.
