There’s only a few days left before the official release of WebStorm 7!
We’ve been working hard on making some final fixes and improvements (to learn more about the changes made since the release of WebStorm 7 Beta, please check out the release notes). And now right before the major release, we’d like to publish WebStorm 7.0 Release Candidate.
You can download WebStorm 7 RC for your operating system from the website. This version requires active WebStorm license or you can use it for 30 day evaluation.
We welcome your valuable feedback on our issue tracker and would like to thank everyone who participated in our Early Access Program.
We are in the home stretch now and are very excited to release WebStorm 7.0 Beta today.
We’d like to remind you about the major updates that we’ve made and that are going to be in the upcoming release:
- initial support for Stylus
- integrated Karma test runner with istanbul code coverage engine
- built-in npm and Terminal.
You can learn more about WebStorm 7 additions and improvements on WebStorm web site and download WebStorm 7 Beta for your operation system.
We welcome your feedback: leave your comment in our blog and submit any issues you might have on YouTrack.
Today we’ve released a new EAP build of WebStorm, which completes the feature set planned for WebStorm 7. The two big new features added in this build are support for Compass and the integration of the local terminal, which previously made its appearance in other products such as PyCharm and PhpStorm. Also the Stylus support is quite a bit further along than in the previous EAP build, with working code completion and a large number of bugfixes in the parser.
The detailed list of changes can be found in the release notes, and the build itself is available for download on the EAP page and for patch-based update from within the IDE.
The new EAP build of WebStorm 7, build 130.1630, brings an initial implementation of the highest-voted feature in the WebStorm issue tracker: Stylus support. The implementation is very new, so please don’t be surprised if you encounter red code or some of your favourite CSS features not working; please do report all of the problems to the issue tracker.
For more details, please check out the release notes. The new build is available for download on the EAP page and will soon appear as a patch-based update within the IDE.
Today we’ve released a new EAP build of WebStorm 7, version 130.1494. The previous EAP build was released not so long ago, so the release notes list is not particularly long. Changes worth highlighting are support for NPM, LESS 1.4, bugfixes for EJS, CoffeeScript and the Karma test runner.
The new build is available for download on the EAP page and will soon appear as a patch-based update within the IDE. As usual, your feedback is welcome in YouTrack.
Beyond that, we’ve continued work on TypeScript 0.9 support, fixed a number of issues related to LiveEdit and debugging, and integrated a bunch of general platform improvements. The full list of changes can be found in the release notes. The new build can be downloaded from the EAP page, as well as installed using the in-IDE autoupdate feature.
Today we’re releasing a new EAP build of WebStorm 7. The new build contains a good amount of new features for you to enjoy:
- Initial support for TypeScript 0.9, including the support for generics;
- Redesigned REST Client UI with support for requests history, import/export, compressed responses and other improvements;
We’ve also redesigned Live Edit, one of the main productivity-enhancing features of WebStorm. To make its behavior more predictable, we’re now enabling it only within a debug session. You can run the JS debugger for every HTML page, and once you do so, Live Edit will take care of automatically updating the contents of the page as you change the .html file.
As usual, you can find more information in the release notes. The build is available for download on the EAP page, and will soon be available for patch-based update within the IDE.
WebStorm build 130.958 is available for download on the EAP page, and if you’re already running the previous WebStorm 7 EAP build, you can use the built-in patch-based update. You can also check the full release notes for the new build.
