Pricing

I have been following (with growing anxiety) the licence pricing development...
Yes - there're 'tons of' new features, but what if those features are not needed? If you continue to pump up the price before the official Aurora release, could you at least offer different pricing schemes based on chosen feature set?!

J2EE, AspectJ, UI designer.. I don't need those features and I feel that the current 500$ licence (which will probably be at least 200$ more when aurora is released) includes those features.

Don't make me switch to Eclipse!

P.S.
Besides - I've been raving about how great IDEA is.. the marketing value alone should earn me a discount ;)

why do you think they will up the price another 200? To my limited knowledge they have only had one price increase. I would expect them to keep the price about the same. They'll make lots of money just in upgrades.

We increased the price for $100 only once since the 1.0 release. The price
for 4.0 will be the same as now.

how about offering early upgrade licenses for a small discount?

Eugene,

how much will cost the upgrade from a single 3.0 license?
