I currently have a license to IntelliJ Ultimate. I know my license going to expire later this month (3/13) and I've already received the emails from Jetbrains telling me my subscription will be renewed on 3/14. In that email, there is a link for "What happens if I don't renew?" and that link says:
When purchasing an annual subscription, you will immediately get a perpetual fallback license for the exact version available at the time.
So when I see this message in IntelliJ I'm confused. Will I be able to use the software "forever" or not?
Your IntelliJ IDEA subscription expires on 3/13/2018.
After this date you will no longer able to use IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1.5
After closer reading I believe that whatever version was available at the time I purchased my subscription is the version I'll be able to use "forever". Just one problem. When I've installed and kept current I've uninstalled my "old" version", so my questions are:
(Q) How can I find what version is associated with my perpetual forever license?
(Q) Does JetBrains support downloading of older versions? If so where do I go?
(Q) Is the same license key that I use for my subscription used for the "perpetual" license? Or is there a different license key. If it's different where do I go to download it?
(Q) If/when I renew subscription, will I receive a new license key?
I can probably search and find these answers, but wanted the question in case others were curious, and for me in another year.
