intellij 8.0 memory settings

Just installed the new version 8.0 of Intellij Idea.

idea8_header

With default memory settings i got permanent OutOfMemory with nothing else as created a default webapp with one jsp (using Sun JDK 1.6.0_10).

Exception occurred during event dispatching:
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

So, i modified the memory settings a little bit more aggressive than recommended on IntelliJ Blog:

edit idea-9013/bin/idea.vmoptions (no -server, no -Xms to let the VM decide min settings)
-Xmx512m
-XX:MaxPermSize=140m
-ea

It runs now quite well.
