Why does the size of the installer changed dramatically?

I noticed that the the of the R# installer increased fron around 200 MB to around 900 MB. Why does this happen?

Hello Andreas,

 

The size changed because of including Rider in installer, it's a part of new dotUltimate License Policy: https://blog.jetbrains.com/dotnet/2020/07/15/licensing-update-net-tools/
When we release 2020.2, there will be lightweight Web Installer available, which will download only user-selected products.

Thank you.
