Why isn't there a patch upgrade option for installing 11.1.1 or 11.1.2?

I usually use the EAP version of IntelliJ IDEA, but right now I'm using 11.1 build 117.84. It's told me that there are new versions availble (first 11.1.1 and now 11.1.2), but I can't download and install them as a patch. The only option is a "Download" button which takes me to here:  http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/

Why is that? I don't want to download and re-install the entire package again. Other than the inconvenience of it, I lose all my shelved changes when I switch to a new IDEA "app". I'm using Mac OS X Lion.

The patch upgrade option to 11.1.2 is available if you're running either IntelliJ IDEA 11.1.1 or the latest 11.1.2 RC build (117.359). As usual, we're not publishing patches for all possible EAP builds.
