seeing as you've been an eap user for two and a half years, maybe you could go crazy and buy a license!

I don't see why not? Official licences work fine with the EAPs and the
EAP doesn't expire/stop running.

Why would purchasing an official licence be a joke? Unless one was
freeloading? ( not that I'm saying you are... )

Can we get a new license key for this version? Or is a new version coming soon?

Nope not a joke. IDEA is not a free product, and their licenses work
for EAPs... So no, if you buy a license then you can use the EAP
whenever you want. If that's an issue, then maybe Netbeans or Eclipse
might suit you better since they're free.

Oh, I see what you're talking about. I forgot the commercial license also worked for the EAP. Its been a while since I did the EAP thing.

I've had a license for version 3 for a long time, and never upgraded to 4 because it didn't add anything I needed. The multi-module project model didn't work well in our environment when I evaluated 4, so I just kept using 3. Since the license for 3 doesn't work in the EAP, I've got to use the demo license.

I'm using the EAP as a way to evaluate whether Idea works in our environment now and how much it's changed in general. Between refinements to the project mode, the Subversion support, and other various little enhancements, it looks pretty good.

Still and all, this thread is way too hostile. You shouldn't just assume anyone evaluating Idea is a thief or freeloader, at least without asking. I've been an Idea customer and a huge booster since way back. I've pointed many people towards Idea and the EAP, and most of them have ended up purchasing.
