Hi,

If you upload a new build that has a "higher" version number, IntelliJ will automatically check for updates from time to time and suggest the update to users that already have the old version installed. They can also force an update, of course.

Hi,

Bastien is correct: once a day IDEA checks for all installed plugins if there is a newer version on plugins.jetbrains.com and suggests to update. Or you can go to Settings -> Plugins and click "Reload List of Plugins" there and then you would also be suggested to update plugins that have newer version.
