Why it is taking so long to fix the getValue/setValue auto import 🤔 ?

this is just speculation, but it seems like this is probably a bug in how the kotlin plugin uses the compiler frontend to figure out what to suggest based on type inference. The type inference in kotlin 1.4 was rewritten from 1.3, so i wouldn’t be surprised if there are some bugs, especially around IDE integrations like this. I’m guessing fixing it requires digging pretty deep into fundamental kotlin compiler type system stuff, which then needs to be propagated up through the kotlin plugin release pipeline and/or IDE releases, which might take some time.
