There is a lot of confusion recently regarding the EAP builds and announcements.
Can JetBrains please clear for us a few issues:
1. How should we know when a new build is released? http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/IDEADEV/Maia+EAP is outdated and so is the Announcement thread, here on the forums. Twitter also doesn't say anything about the latest build (90.193).
We need a way to know when a new build is released. Otherwise I suspect you will have fewer people updating to the latest build and thus fewer bug reports (or worse, more bug reports for bugs which are already fixed).
Also, manually checking a web page (like the Maia EAP page) is a pretty bad option. Something that supports RSS/Atom and has feeds only about the builds (so twitter is not an option, unless you create a IntelliJ_EAP_Announcements account) would be ideal.
2. I see the EAP builds are available at http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/nextversion/index.html. Is this going to continue like this? Will that be the authoritive source to get EAP builds from?
3. The EAP builds are available at http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/nextversion/index.html doesn't have the zip package (not even hidden, like you use to do for realeases). Some of us prefer the zip package because it's easier to update an exiting EAP installation and also because it's portable (portable programs rule!).
