JetBrains PhpStorm 4.0: Do It Right From The First Time
Leading PHP IDE adds full PHP 5.4 support, ECMAScript Harmony support and killer bug-prevention abilities using PHP Code Sniffer and PHPUnit Code Coverage
April 24, 2012
Prague, Czech Republic, April 24, 2012 — JetBrains®, the creators of IntelliJ IDEA, ReSharper and other intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of PhpStorm 4.0, its smart code-centric PHP IDE.
PhpStorm is an indispensible productivity and time-saving tool for thousands of developers. As one customer put it, “Methinks if you are developing in PHP and are not using PhpStorm, you are working too hard.”
To keep pace with the times, the new release includes full compliance with PHP 5.4 language features and ECMAScript Harmony support, which makes PhpStorm 4.0 a must-have IDE for today’s sophisticated PHP developers.
“We have always cared about the quality of your code, by creating things like on-the-fly error checking, zero-configuration PHP debugger, and code inspections,” said Alexey Gopachenko, PhpStorm project lead. “The next step we’ve taken in this direction is integrating PHP Code Sniffer and Code coverage for PHPUnit. All this is designed to let you do things right from the first time — by preventing bugs instead of catching them.”
The most important changes in PhpStorm 4.0 include:
- PHP 5.4 language features support
- ECMAScript Harmony support
- Code coverage for PHPUnit
- Code checking with PHP Code Sniffer
- Drupal coding style support
- New PHP code inspections
