Intellij EAP and OSX Mavericks

So we understand that the problem is the launcher and Jetbrains has to generate a new bundle following Oracles protocol. In looking through the latest release notes for IntelliJ IDEA 13 build 132.947 it looks to me like this was addressed under:

Package and Installation

IDEA-91062 (Feature) Bundle the required JRE into the AppCode application package
IDEA-115627 (Bug) For MacOSX installation with bundled jdk messages prompted to allow incoming connections are displayed

However it still doesn't work. IntelliJ still requires 1.6. I was able to get around this using the Unix version if any one is interested. Here's a blog post about it -

Jetbrains please fix this!

I think that perhaps the version with bundled JDK is not public yet.
The published Mac version does not appear to physically contain the JDK bundle.

Yes for gods sake please fix this already.  Getting IDEA running on a Mac continues to be an exercise in frustration.
