Authors: Which Version?

Sometimes, it actually helps to talk to my wife about the book promos. In the course of mentioning to her about the fact that the book is on IntelliJ and that it's nice to see something that we're working with at the office... it occurred to me that I have no idea which version of IDEA this is for. Especially as 5.1.1 is just out - I'm not imagining that this is for that late of a version, but is this at least for the 5.0 version?

Just curious, knowing how long a leadtime books need sometimes.

From Manning's homepage :

The screenshots in this text were created with version 4.5 under the Windows operating system.
Throughout the text are callouts that focus attention on various aspects of using the software. You'll encounter tips that point out clever or time-saving tricks, and warnings that alert you to particularly nasty situations you'd do well to avoid. You'll also see IDEA 5 callouts.
At the time of the first writing, IDEA 5 was still in development. Although we have worked closely with JetBrains to ensure accuracy, some of the 5 features may have changed slightly before the final release. We added IDEA 5 callouts throughout the text to highlight the differences between versions 4.5 and 5
