IDEA 6 release date

So when is IDEA 6 coming out then?

What is the deadline for purchasing a 5.1 license (and availing of the
IDEA 6 + Teamcity deal)?

I've been trying the various EAP releases and the only thing that's
making me a bit unsure of IDEA 6 is the fact that it freezes and needs
to be closed down and restarted. This is probably a stupid question,
but all such bugs will be ironed out before the final release right?

The only way to be sure that a bug is fixed is to report it to the developers,
provide all the necessary details (like the thread dump for a hang) and track
the status of the JIRA request for the bug. Otherwise, the bug may very well
be not fixed, because we can't fix bugs that we don't know about.

I was looking for a probably release date... October? November? Later
than that...?
