Thank you very much. I feel privileged.
I also want to take this opportunity to return the favor and thanks the
development team for such great product and support. I know that it hasn't
always been easy and some people complained about the EAP support. Let's
face it: there is no perfect product/team but I can safely say that IDEA and
JetBrains is the closest to the best product and team I have had the
privilege to work with. This also attracted the best user group which I
believe was not in small part responsible to such a quality product.
I really believe that 3.0 is a major step forward and all EAP members have
had a part in it.
I am just so eager to see what you are preparing for us for 3.5/4.0.

Keep up the good work! IDEA really makes j2ee development fun!

Thanks very much, I feel honored.

It's great to know that I am a small part of such a great product.

Every issue I submitted that got fixed or responded to just showed me that
my efforts weren't for nothing and that was the big reward.

You people rock big time.

I'll be looking forward to the next EAP!

First time in my life I win anything, and it's not a stuffed fish.
Many thanks.

well, I guess I'll add my thanks as well. Good to see that nobody minded my griping about the icon color-fest, and other "shortcomings". IDEA is still a shining beauty, with or without makeup.

thanks,
Christian

Hey thanks! It was a pleasure helping you. I reported bugs purely for the
selfish reason that I wanted the best product there is. This is an
unexpected extra reward. Thank you for this and for IDEA.

Thank you very much for this. What an honor.

It was a great pleasure to take part in the EAP program

EAP cycle...

You guys rock!

Wow. Just wow. I feel like a giddy teenager ;)

This is the first time I've participated in an early access program and
I've found to be very rewarding, not only because I have access to new
features and bugfixes so rapidly (and they are very quick!) but because
I am able to contribute back to the creators of a wonderful product that
makes my life easier. I've already done one evangelical session about
IDEA at our company's TechLunch sessions; I'll have to do another one
soon 8)

Thanks guys,
Gordon

I would also like to thank these people. I am sure that, no matter what,
they IntelliJ developers would have produced an outstanding product.
That said, I am sure that the efforts of the legions of dedicated IDEA
fans provided a level of testing rarely available. A big THANK YOU to
all of you.

I can only agree with the others who have already replied. With all the
time that I have saved by using IDEA, I wouldn't have hesitated to buy
the new version even at full price (well, not that it's my private
money, but anyway).

But I think the greatest thanks should go to the IDEA developers
themselves, for being so incredibly active in mailing lists, newsgroups
and the tracker. The only reason why I have been actively reporting
bugs and requesting new features is that bugs actually get fixed,
features (those that are deemed worthy) are actually implemented, and we
get almost immediate feedback from the developers themselves. It's this
direct contact that makes me feel like it's worth posting a request,
that it won't just end up in the bit bucket or in some kind of archive
where the marketing department (which decides what should be
implemented) never looks anyway.

Wow, so many replies that I have trouble deciding on which post to hang mine off of! I'm so very grateful (not to mention utterly amazed) at being chosen. I certainly don't feel I deserve it as much as most of the people on this list, since I often have a...(ahem) rather unpleasant way of expressing my complaints ;)

It's a sign of what a great (even if they do come up with dubious feature requests sometimes!) community and following IDEA has, that I recognise every single name on this list.

What can I say, keep up the good work, you hold your end of the bargain and I promise you I'll hold up mine. If this isn't motivation to keep filing helpful bug reports, I don't know what is.

Now, about that OSX support....;)

I didn't get picked, but I would like to echo the sentiments of many
here. The IDEA EAP was the best, most responsive early access program I
have ever participated in. I look forward to my continued use of IDEA,
and to the next EAP.

Cheers to the whole JetBrains lot!

Thank you!

Not only do you produce great software, but this gesture demonstrates that as a company you have integrity -- and a respect and appreciation for your users -- above and beyond that of any other software development company that I know of. You deserve a round of applause!

Thanks again.

OK, here's my acceptance speech :)
This was quite an unexpected treat. I don't really feel I
contributed as much as the others on the list, but I'm
not complaining.

I think all the important points about JetBrains
and the IntelliJ team have already been made. So I'll
just mention that this has been my first real online community
experience. It has been particularly nice interacting with an
international community. I'm just happy I didn't "piss anybody off".
(Well, maybe once?)

Thanks!

Hi all,

I want to thank you, too -- for selecting me to be one of these
privileged winners and for making such a good product.

I think, there are at least two major reasons, why the JetBrains made
such an encredible powerful and nevertheless easy-to-use IDE:
- they have an excellent team of developers and designers and
- they have us, the active EAP community.

I want to thank all the other EAP members, too, that have given
their commitment for bug-hunting and steering the EAP ship into the
port.

Cheers,
Tom

Hi, I would like to thank your team, I tried a lot of Java IDE, Netbeans,
Forte,
JBuilder, Together, and some simple text editor, and discovered Idea 2.6.
I found it was great.
I will try to explain why I prefers Idea : ergonomics is excellent.
When others ide have hundreds of menus, dialogs, Idea is easy to use,
fast and powerful.
there is a lot of idea that others softs miss like smart type completion,
easy interface implementations. I cannot tell everything.
One thing that Idea 2.6 was missing was a function like code audit of
Together
After that I heard of EAP program and suscribed it. So I discovered
Ariadna which added code audit and a lot of things.
In fact it was the first time I was really active in a beta test. Because
in most case beta testers reports bugs, ideas and don't know if the
developper
team read them. Here this beta test is the opposite, the team is really
here,
quick, answers questions, when we suggest features or ideas, we know you
will read
them. and keep them if you like it. there is a real discussion.
Now for next EAP, I hope you'll add an swing and awt graphical editor,
and I trust you to create something surprising and different (:


I love Idea !

I agree completely with you. This EAP community (or better: "family"),
including us and the JetBrains developers, is a very powerful
symbiosis, where everybody, who participates, has it's advantages
from. We have pushed IDEA in the direction, where we wanted it to be
and where it is now (although there were hard debates sometimes). But
without the active communication from the JetBrains developers, IDEA
would not have become such a good tool.

Cheers,
Tom

The only thing I bitterly regret is that I have not joined the EAP program much earlier than I actually did. From my side I would really like to thank IntelliJ people - they were extremely responsive, cooperative and patient. I would also really like to thank all other EAP members - for submitting bright ideas, for writing plugins, for interesting discussions. I believe that we all feel rewarded by the eventual long-awaited release of the new IDEA.

Looking forward to take part in Aurora EAP...

Thank you so much for this! I truly appreciate it. What an unexpected surprise this morning : )

As if using IDEA wasn't a nice enough experience, you've gone ahead and made it that much nicer.

Thanks, JetBrains!

Thank you very much!

I agree with everything already expressed here. I also want to mention the sheer speed of development.
It's amazing how much progress was made from 2.x to 3.0 in just a year.

Looking forward to Aurora builds.

Thanks for the great product!
