    Nice, does that include a free update to IntelliJ IDEA 12? This would be awesome and I would finally buy a license for personal use (I have the luck to have a license at work)

    Does it make sense to buy IntelliJ 11 now when 12 is almost ready?

    I’d buy the update now had I known it would include v12.

    Well, judging by the Licensing and Upgrade page, it does not include a free upgrade to IDEA 12.

    I’ve asked support for upgrade to 12 and in response I’ve received:

    “When buying this product, you are buying a version, not an annual maintenance.
    This means, that you can access all builds, which were released in connection to the major release you have bought.
    There are exceptions – for example, when buying a product shortly before the release of the next major version.
    That’s when we offer a free upgrade period. Also, as a sign of goodwill we are offering a discount, when purchased within a month before that period started.
    But generally, when buying let’s say version X, you’ll get all version X products.

    So unfortunately the upgrade to version 12 is not included.”

    Shoot, I just bought two personal licenses (PyCharm and IntelliJ) literally a week agao

    I’m not surprised by version 12 not being included here, though that would be a great deal.

    I don’t currently have a license for the Ultimate version, and I’ve been strongly considering getting one for version 12 when it comes out so I’ve been holding off.

    However if I can get the current version for $99 now and then pay the other $99 later this year to upgrade from 11 to 12, that makes things a lot sweeter; I’d get the benefit of the current ultimate version in the meantime without having to wait and still pay the same price overall.

    @Mateusz Dykszak Please note that the restriction is only for IntelliJ, other IDEs include major upgrades for one year.

    IntelliJ IDEA 12 release is planned for early December, in about 3 months.
    As correctly noted by Terence Martin if you buy now and upgrade to v12 you pay one license full-price for 2 versions 11 & 12.

    If u will buy now, u need ~180$ to get 11 and 12, only 20$ save =)

    If you have no interest in IntelliJ 12, this is a great deal. If, however, there is a must-have feature for you in version 12 then you will end up paying the $99 upgrade fee which will bring your total cost to $199: the full price of a personal license. The main advantage is that it would allow you to pay half of the cost now and half later.

    As a play! developer I really appreciate all java related features like auto completion, refactors, etc. that come with IDEA, there is a bunch of other features related to other frameworks or J2EE that I just don’t need. Why not have framework oriented distributions or modular distributions of IDEA at a fair price like RubyMine has?

    Now you pay 37€ for a Rubymine annual license giving you also all major updates. But even the regular 66 € price tag seems right with me.

    Got my IntelliJ 11 license 😛 but yeah it would be super if there where discount for upgrade also from 11 to 12. I would be happy with 30% discount when upgrading.
