Installed Platform Versions

I'm writing a plugin and trying to decide the minimum build to target. Is data about the IntelliJ version install base available somewhere? Something like the Android platform version page: http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html

I'm relying on the platform Groovy implementation in my plugin to prevent the jar from being too large and I'd like to use the newest version of IntelliJ that still covers much of the install base.

We don't publish any such data at the moment. Based on the feedback that we receive, you should be fine with targeting IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 at the moment. People who do not upgrade to latest IntelliJ versions are usually not that much interested in trying out new plugins.

You might guess the distribution of installations by counting reports per version during say the last 6 months from our bug tracker - but those will "only" be the active users ;-)
