upgrade plan?

Hi to all,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask for, but how will the
upgrade for 3.x users to Aurora look like. I. e. I bought my license in Oct.
2002. Am I supposed to buy an upgrade license? If so, how much will it be?

thx in advance

The upgrade price now is planned to be 60% of IDEA 4.0 price - 300 USD.


Best regards,
Sergey Dmitriev.

Does the upgrade price apply to all 3.0 licenses, or ones bought >8 months ago?

Yes, as we plan now, this upgrade price will be applied to all Idea
licenses, bought before October 15, 2003. Licences, that are bought after
this date can be upgraded to 4.0 for free.

So, for a first time buyer, a personal license will be 750 USD? Gee, we are kind of getting up near the JBuilder price range. With the corporate spending cutbacks that are taking place in the U.S. I would caution on setting the price too high.

It would be better I think to sell more quantity at a lower cost than to sell fewer at a higher cost.

Just a thought. Had I not purchased IDEA a couple years ago, there is no way I could bring myself to spend 750 USD out of my own pocket...there are limits to how far one would go.

Thanks,

Justin

where are you seeing $750? A brand new license is $499. AFAIK there has only been one price increase during the entire existance of idea.

Charles,

I am seeing it in my bad math and botched calculator entry. I reran the numbers and it comes out to 500 (okay 499 :). Sorry for the alarm. 499 is reasonable. I hope Jetbrains doesn't fine me for slander.

and for an upgrade it will be only $299 :)

What would be nice is if you PRE-PAY your upgrade, you get it for only $199 :)

What do you think ?

If 60% is 300$ ,
how much is 100%?

Not 750$, for sure!
