EAP auto-update doesn't work?

Should these EAP builds show up in IDEA via "Check for Updates"?

Because I'm still on build 110.187, and I've set my updates channel to "Early Access Program", but IDEA is not finding the releases that have been posted to the EAP page this week (no matter how many times I click "Check Now"). I can of course watch the EAP page and manually download each build, but it would be more convenient if IDEA's auto-update functionality worked for EAP builds. Same thing happened when 110.187 came out, and I was still on 110.3.

Hello steve,

The auto-update information for the last couple of EAP builds wasn't properly
published. We'll publish the information properly for the subsequent builds.

Thanks a lot, Dmitry. "Download patch and restart" is way quicker and easier than manually downloading and overwriting the previous version myself.

Hi Dmitry,

Could you please publish the info for the ideaIU-110.365 build, so I can auto-update through IntelliJ?

Thanks.

Hello steve,

The update information for this build should become available in 20-30 minutes.

Could you please publish the info for the ideaIU-110.365 build, so I
can auto-update through IntelliJ?

Got it, thanks Dmitry! I had to manually restart IntelliJ, but I guess that's to be expected. (At least I didn't need to download the whole thing and install it over my current EAP version!)

I'm on the IDEA 11.1.3 EAP, and I got an update notice for a new version of 11.1.3 (build 117.747), but there is only a "Download" button. Why is there no option to download the patch and apply?

Auto-update is only available for directly adjacent builds. Since you skipped updating to 117.728, auto-update is not available for you.
