Web IDE EAP (build 445)

The third EAP build #455 adds several new features, addresses performance problems (particularly in PHP code completion) and fixes most exceptions in PHP parser and editor reported by EAPers.

New features include:

  • YAML support with structure view
  • PHPDOC @property & @method declarations completion & resolution
  • Several debugger enhancements — keeping XDebug connections, Concurrent debugging sessions, starting at 1st line etc. Expect separate blog-post shortly.
  • Added editor highlighting of several semantic errors (several members with same name, abstract modifier vs method body, etc.)


  • Completion now properly shows all visible inherited members
  • Fixed parsing of namespaces in lambdas and multiple ‘as’ clauses
  • Type inspection now properly understands polymorphism
  • Adjusted size of dialogs on first run
  • Fixed parsing of escape sequences inside doublequoted literals

See complete change-list in issue tracker.

Note: Since this build the built-in HTML preview is gone (same for IntelliJ IDEA & RubyMine) and is no longer supported. We are developing completely new feature to replace it — stay tuned.
