When I purchased my license of WebStorm, part of the agreement stated that any major upgrades that were released within a year, would bump my license up for the new version. Here we are 364 days later (literally 1 day before my license is up) and WebStorm 3 is out. After a call to sales, I was told that yes my license is eligible for the MAJOR version, Webstorm 3. HOWEVER, if/when Webstorm 3.1 is released, my license is NOT valid for that version!
I'm sorry but, bug fixes with some small enhancements in a point release SHOULD NOT invalidate my license for the major version of webstorm 3. I was told I have to have an ACTIVE subscription. Funny how a license transformed into a subscription. FAIL. I love WebStorm, but the false claims by JetBrains just forced me to use a different editor/ide.
TL;DR: If a new version of WS is released within the first year, you aren't really eligible for an upgrade to that version.
Just FYI for those that may have had the same perception that I did about JetBrain products and how their SUBSCRIPTIONS work.
