Hi there,

What are the conditions if we buy Idea 5 now to get Idea 6? When do you plan
to release Idea 6?

Thanks in advance

You should be able to see the answer on our Web site by tomorrow, or even
earlier. :)

Dmitry,

Let me get it straight - based on the web site offer, those with a V5 license are
entitled to free upgrade to V6 and a free license to TeamCity V1, so I do not
need to do anything to have V6 work when it comes out?

Cheers,

Bonny

I think the offer is for those that buy IntelliJ 5.1 NOW. This is normal industry practice prior to the release of a new version of a product because without this incentive new licensees are likely to stall until the actual final release is out.

I have not yet completely moved over to the 6.0 EA builds because of performance and exception issues (which is to be expected with an EA) so I still think we have at least 1-2 months to go before the release date.

Kind regards,

It's the same as usual: your license key will be valid for V6 if you buy
it from now on, but if you already have a license key for V5 you purchased
earlier, you'll need to pay the regular upgrade price.

I have a personal license for IDEA 5.0 (bought in December 2005). How
much will upgrading to IDEA 6 cost (is it $149 as in
http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/upgrade/how_to_upgrade.html?) and will
IDEA 6 come bundled with TeamCity for the same price?

Yes, the upgrade will cost $149. As for whether it will include TeamCity
- I don't have this information right now.

OK, then. Presuming one has upgraded to 5.x from a 4.x version, one could
buy the upgrade to 5.x again, during this period, in order to end up with
both a new IDEA license AND a TeamCity lincence... It's just the customers
that bought a new license for 5.x before now that are toasted. :)

In all fairness, an equivalent deal for 5.x license holders would be to buy
the upgrade now and get the bundled TeamCity (or run this bonus offer for
a limited time after release).

Anyway, do you have any estimates for how much TeamCity would cost on its
own? I haven't managed to spot this info on the site.

Best,
Andrei

My understanding is that there will be such a deal. But again, I don't have
complete information on the TeamCity licensing.
