Or are they improving the language syntax so the IDE has it easier? I don't understand

I think it's improving the scripting runtime and specifically in the context of gradle or something

Kotlin isn’t just a programming language, sure there’s a Kotlin programming language, but Kotlin is composed of various things, namely (not exclusively): • the programming language • scripting runtime • compiler • tooling (gradle plugins, etc)

So when they are updating the version of Kotlin, they might be talking about improving an IntelliJ IDEA plugin?
And not new syntax or language features?

No, the whole ecosystem is touched by the massive update. From the language implementation to tooling.
