version change to 4.5?

Just visited jetbrains site and I see new Idea version is planned to be released as 4.5 version.
Now I thought it was going to be 4.1 version, but anyway,
question is if this going to be free upgrade for 4.0 users (personal licence)?
thanks,

This is also all covered in the press release if you read it. I guess the functionality and fixes are such that it warrents a more major build version than 4.1.

To me 4.5 is still a minor release, same as 4.1.
But I guess it convey better the idea that it is in the middle between 4.0 and 5.0 and that we should not expect a 4.2 ;)

Anyhow, does that mean that all plugins will have to be updated to tell IDEA they support 4.5 and not 4.1?

Mmmm, will I be able to upgrade my 3 licence to 4.5? Work upgraded to 4
but I was holding off my personal licence from being upgraded till I
could afford it, and maybe once 4.1 was out....

Jacques, 4.5 is still a minor release to me too however it simply seems more significant than a 4.1 release and like you said it indicates there will be no 4.2 release.

Mark, you should have upgraded during the Easter dicount special price when it was only $149. Now you will probably have to either pay full price or wait to upgrade until the next discount comes along whenever that'll be.
