Gemini
VERSION_UNSPECIFIED

Duet AI, an AI-powered collaborator in Google Cloud, is Generally available. The Generally available release includes the following:

  • Duet AI for Developers is Generally available.
  • The Duet AI pane in VSCode, JetBrains, Cloud Workstations and Cloud Shell Editor uses an improved model with higher accuracy and more complete responses.
  • In VSCode, a sign-in expiration issue for Duet AI has been fixed.
  • In VSCode and JetBrains IDEs, you can enable Duet AI entirely from the IDE instead of visiting the Google Cloud console.
  • In VSCode and JetBrains IDEs, improved filtering and sorting reduces the amount of generated code that contains only comments.
  • Improved logic for defining the final code completion token. This resolves issues where extra closing brackets were suggested and where lines of code broken in the middle were returned.
  • In JetBrains IDEs, Duet AI cancels code generation when the user changes the code position before a response is returned. This ensures generated code isn't rendered in the wrong place.
