Special Pricing, Upgrades, and the Future

Since the time is nearing for the special pricing to end, I figure it's nearing the time to make a decision going forward.

My concern right now is that the EAP releases are more in line with what I would eventually like to have in IDEA. If we figure that the pricing is currently $249 for 4.x, and if I look at the previous upgrade price of $299 (to get to 4), to remain in the product line it would cost over the $499 standard pricing. At that rate, it might be more worthwhile to wait.

I was curious as to what the plan is for pricing going forward, which would really affect my plans might be.

Thanks for any help that can be provided.

JetBrains "usually" offer a similar deal around Easter time and when it's close to a major release the price usually includes a free upgrate to the next major version.

Now I'm not saying this will definately happen again, however it has in the past. I guess it just depends how generous the JB team are feeling closer to the release. :)
