JetBrains adopted a subscription-based licensing model for selected products on November 2, 2015. This new model allows our customers to purchase monthly and yearly subscriptions for one or more products.
Renewing your subscription will keep it active, allowing you to continuously install and use the latest versions of the Product as they are released. Please note, our subscription-based licensing model also grants a perpetual fallback license.
Subscriptions valid for at least 365 consecutive days will qualify for the Perpetual Fallback License. This is a perpetual license you can keep using forever at no additional cost if you ever decide not to renew your subscription, however the Perpetual Fallback License will be limited to version of the Product available at the time of purchase or 12 months prior.
An All Products option is also available providing our customers with access to all our desktop products (IDEs, utilities and extensions).
JetBrains team tools (which include TeamCity, YouTrack, Hub and Upsource) are covered under a normal perpetual licensing model.
