When IDEA X is going to be released? Should I buy IDEA 9 or wait for IDEA X? Follow Oleksii Iepishkin Created September 02, 2010 20:14 My company is going to buy IDEA 9 licenses for all our java developers. Right now I use EAP of IDEA X. But I don't know when it should be released.Will we need to buy/upgrade licenses when IDEA X is released? Is it better to wait for IDEA X?
