EAPs don't use the incremental update system.

Personally, I prefer to have the full release archives. How do you go back to an earlier version if you find a serious problem in a new release that is installed by the buil-in incremental update process?

They do - I've used it several times before.

I could always download the full version if I wanted to downgrade.

Cheers,

I seem to recall a JetBrains employee stating in these forums a few months back that EAPs don't use the automatic update service.

While it isn't possible to update from a milestone to a subsequent EAP, it's definitely possible to update from one EAP to the next. I think it's just sometimes forgotten to update the "update site", which is annoying.

Hello Peter,

The patch is not available for 10762 because there've been some packaging
changes that the patch system isn't always capable of handling, and we've
decided to release only a full build to make sure that users won't get broken
installations. Subsequent EAP builds will be available as patches again.

Once again, I have to download the whole app. Why is no update
offered?
