3.1.1 GA 2 and Installers Released

Hello all,

We have pushed a new release of Liferay IDE, Liferay Developer Studio version 3.1.1 GA2 and Liferay Workspace Installer

Liferay IDE 3.1.1 GA2

You can update or install the new release of Liferay IDE using either of the following links as usual:


If you have already installed one of the previous milestones, you can upgrade to the latest by just using ‘Check for Updates…’.  The /latest/milestone/ link will contain the latest 3.1.1 GA release as well.  

For full list of the bundles that includes Eclipse Neon 3 JavaEE package with Liferay IDE 3.1.1 pre-installed:


Liferay Developer Studio 3.1.1 GA 2

For customers, they can download Liferay Developer Studio on the customer studio download page. You can upgrade from Studio 3.1 B1 or 3.1 GA1 through Help > Install New Software... dialog, but it can’t be upgraded from other previous versions, 3.0 and before.

  3. Select Archive...Browse to the downloaded updatesite

New Installers: Liferay Workspace and Liferay Developer Studio

Same as the previous 3.1 GA release, we have released two new installers for customers.  The smaller one is just for setting up a Liferay workspace and the other installer is the full fledged Liferay Developer Studio installer which installs Liferay workspace, blade, Developer Studio and comes pre-bundled with latest Liferay DXP server.

These installers will install the blade CLI program as well as optionally initialize a Liferay Workspace directory or generate token in your {user.home}/.liferay folder, the {user.home}/.liferay folder will be generated automatically if it doesn’t exist. You can visit this page to download the workspace installers.

This is the second ga release (See this blog entry for highlights of the 3.1.0 GA1 release.) It can installed on Eclipse Oxygen since we bundled buildship 2.1.1 and make it as a top level feature during installation.

New automate error report service has been made available now. Which would be easier for IDE/Studio to receive error reports and find out where our tools breaks in the field.
