IntelliJ-based IDEs no longer supports 32-bit operating systems
JetBrains announced that IntelliJ-based IDEs will end support for 32-bit operating systems. Its announcement stated that whether it is Linux or Windows, the number of users using 32-bit operating systems has dropped significantly, especially systems based on the Intel x86 architecture. Therefore, JetBrains decided to stop developing the 32-bit version of the IDE in order to focus on making the product run on the most commonly used operating system. They also plan to focus more on supporting emerging architectures, such as the AArch64 architecture, because at least in the macOS field, this architecture is becoming more and more popular.
The announcement mentioned that for all IntelliJ-based IDEs (including AppCode, Clion, DataGrip, GoLand, IntelliJ IDEA, PhpStorm, PyCharm, Rider, RubyMine, and WebStorm), the last major version that can run on 32-bit operating systems will be v2021.1, all bugfix updates for v2021.1 will also be compatible with 32-bit operating systems. However, starting from v2021.2, IntelliJ-based IDEs will no longer support 32-bit operating systems.
