JetBrains announced this week that via their 2024.2 Early Access Program that IntelliJ-based IDEs will now offer experimental Wayland support.

Now available in preview form is opt-in support for native Wayland with Wayland-based desktops including under Windows' WSLg. This is great rather than having to go through X11 / XWayland.

This native Wayland support for IntelliJ-based IDEs should yield a sharper picture, better Windows Subsystem for Linux integration, a more responsive UI, better multi-monitor support, and other robust improvements over X11.

JetBrains developers continue working on the Wayland support to provide better input handling, native window decorations, drag and drop, and enhanced stability.
