Upgrading IDEA bundled with TeamCity (from 8.0.1 to 8.1)

If I understand correctly - TeamCity 4.0.2 is bundled with IDEA 8.0.1 (9179) as seen in TeamCity\buildAgent\plugins\idea\build.txt
Can IDEA be upgraded to the latest EAP version (9720 as of today) ?
Is replacing TeamCity\buildAgent\plugins\idea\lib and TeamCity\buildAgent\plugins\idea\plugins enough ?

I've tried doing so but received many exception (attached) when running "Inspections" runner so I guess it's not that simple ...

Evgeny,

The error occurs because the usual IDEA distribution is not suitable to work under TeamCity.

I have built TeamCity-specific distribution of IDEA 9720 that you can find here: ftp://ftp.intellij.net/pub/.teamcity/IDEA9720-teamcity/idea_dist.jar

The file will be available for several days.

Hi Yegor,

Is it possible to provide an IDEA 8.1 build for TeamCity ? That would be great.

Thank you !
