This release also borrows many features and improvements from IntelliJ Platform, such as Distraction Free Mode, diff viewer with one-side viewer mode, VCS improvements, database tools update, HiDPI support for Windows and Linux, an updated look-and-feel of Editor tabs, and more goodies.
These awesome new features and many more are covered in detail on the PhpStorm website, where you can also download a free 30-day trial for your platform.
PhpStorm 9 is available as a free update if you purchased your license after July 8, 2014!
PhpStorm 9 brings you significantly redesigned debugging experience. We’ve already blogged about Inline Debugger and how all live debugging data are shown directly in the editor, with variable values integrated smoothly into the current editor’s look-and-feel. Today we’d like to talk about other improvements in debugging and debugging configuration validation workflows.
In short, an even more convenient Web Server Debug Validation is now available from the Run menu, providing additional information on possible debug configuration errors. Many configuration hints are provided as tooltips as well. php.ini can now be opened for editing from the settings. Finally, all the required assistance is provided to get the debugger up and running in a few minutes.
Remote PHP interpreters (introduced in PhpStorm 8) let you run your application and tools on a production-like environment. You can easily use a Vagrant-run virtualized environment with all the tools in place.
In PhpStorm 9, which is scheduled for release later this month, so-called remote development (when your development environment is not local) becomes a reality, with support for PHP Code Sniffer and Mess Detector via remote PHP interpreters.
