Is upgrade from 3.0.3 to 4.x worth it?

My subscription has run out and I am not sure if I am still in the upgrade time period or if I need to purchase a new license.
I have phpStorm 3.0.3 and it does pretty much everything I need.  Those of you that had version 3 and now using the current version is it worth the upgrade or should I just wait until 5 or maybe 6?   Though like I said, 3 is working great for me but wondered if it is worth upgrading or just wait until the next version or later is released?

Thanks.

Also was wondering if jetbrains was talked into the autosave feature being toggleable or if they trully are not ever going to change their stance on that.

Hi there,

Also was wondering if jetbrains was talked into the autosave feature being toggleable or if they trully are not ever going to change their stance on that.

So far there were no changes in this regard (and I doubt that there will be any).

My subscription has run out and I am not sure if I am still in the upgrade time period or if I need to purchase a new license.

If you are happy with what you have so far -- then probably not. In any case -- the best answer would be to see and feel the new version yourself (30 days trial) -- you can have 2 versions installed side by side and run the one you need (they store IDE settings/indexes in different folders, so no issues here -- just make sure that you backup project settings (.idea subfolder), since this is gets overwritten after each project change and it is quite likely not backward compatible).

P.S.
I think that once you no longer have active subscription, you will have to purchase full new license (and not just renew existing one) -- http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/buy/buy.jsp#renew

You have one year from the expiration date to renew at the renewal price then after that you have to buy a new license.

I am not sure if my year is up or not but it doesn't really matter.  Thanks for your input, I will just wait and see if anything in the version 5 will be worth it for me to upgrade or not.

Thanks.
