How to update Python Plugin?

I've just seen on this page:

that a new version of the plugin has been available for more than two weeks now. However, IntelliJ does not notify me of any updates. Even if I reload the plugin list or the repository manually, the latest version displayed is still 2.10.1, not 2.11.

I've set IntelliJ to  automatically check for updates and expected the plugins to be automatically updated, too. Is there something I can do to fix the automatic update for plugins? Or must I download and install these updates manually?
Python plugin version 2.11 is available for IntelliJ IDEA 13 EAP. It's not compatible with IntelliJ IDEA 12.1 and will not be displayed as an available update.
I see. What are the changes from 2.10.1 to 2.11? I didn't find a change log (or "What's new") for the plugin and want to know if I should try the EAP (for the Python plugin, only). Or will a new version for IDEA 12 be released soon?
We don't plan to release any Python plugin updates for IntelliJ IDEA 12. EAP versions of the Python plugin undergo essentially no testing and are mostly intended to be used by people who want to use IntelliJ IDEA 13 EAP anyway and need the Python plugin to be there. I wouldn't recommend upgrading to a EAP version of IntelliJ IDEA just for the sake of a Python plugin.
