3.1 GA 1 and Installers Released

Hello all,

The latest stable release of Liferay IDE, Liferay Developer Studio: version 3.1 GA1, and Liferay Workspace Installer 1.5.0 have been released.

Liferay IDE 3.1 GA 1

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 3.1.0 GA release as well.  

For full list of the bundles that includes Eclipse Neon 3 JavaEE package with Liferay IDE 3.1 pre-installed:


This is the ga release (See 3.1 beta1, 3.1 M3, 3.1 M2 and 3.1 M1 blog entries for highlights of the previous release.)

Liferay Developer Studio 3.1 GA 1

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

We have added some new welcome page actions when you first launch Developer Studio, and most importantly you can use the “Import Liferay Workspace” action that will by default import the Liferay workspace created as a part of the installers (see next section).

New Installers: Liferay Workspace and Liferay Developer Studio

With the 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 home/.liferay folder. You can visit this page to download the workspace installers.

  1. Improve Workspace Installers and Studio Installers. For Dxp users,  put liferay.com credential through token in ~/.liferay folder

  4. Add support for new ext project in DXP
