Why PhpStorm recommends IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition when editing .properties files.

I'm running PHPStorm 7.1, and if I open a file with the ".properties" extension it shows a message at the top

"Plugins supporting files with *.properties are found"

It then provides links to "Check IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition"

Is this correct behavior? Shouldn't it recommend PhpStorm plugins, or is there a reason links to IntelliJ are given?

yes, it's a correct behavior - the IDE searches the plugins repository for plugins associated with file extension and, if this plugin is only available in Idea Ultimate, prompts you to check it. If you don't like being prompted to check Idea Ultimate, press the 'Do not suggest ultimate edition' link
