Early Access Program WebStorm

PhpStorm & WebStorm 3.0 Early Access Program started

We’re happy to announce first public builds of long awaited PhpStorm & WebStorm 3.0!

There’s a lots and lots of stuff inside, totaling to several hundreds of votes, but here is the list visible changes to focus on:

  • Intellij Platform 11 more streamlined UI on modern OSes, including Lion fullscreen mode and lots of performance and usability improvements
  • PHP Project Configuration has PHP interpreters management
  • PHP Language support augmented with advanced type inference, new PHPDoc metadata, a set of Live Templates, new Intentions, and Surround With expressions
  • PHP Editor and Formatter initial implementation of class auto-import, alignment of key=>value pairs, on “=” sign in a group of assignments and PHPDoc formatting options
  • PHP Debug got ‘Zero-Configuration’ command line debugging and significant stability improvements via debugger side caching of evaluation
  • PHP Run configurations tunable with advanced settings for command line run configurations(PHP Script, PHP Unit) – options, environment variables and a new ‘PHP HTTP Request’ configuration for ad-hoc debugging
  • PHP Profiler views for Xdebug profiling logs
  • Twig Basic (HTML) formatting and Keyword/built-in filter completion
  • XSLT Debugger
  • Web Deployment Mark directories to exclude/include from transfer and indexing in project creation window
  • CoffeeScript support

Please note that ALL of this is work in progress and will undergo series of both technical and cosmetic changes during next months.

More stuff is coming – so do not hesitate with feedback, first milestone build is only one month away!

EAP users know the drill, but since this is a major upgrade – I got to repeat:

  • 3rd party plugins may cease to work with this build (bug authors for v 11 support)

Download PhpStorm & WebStorm 3.0 EAP build 108.1343 for your platform from project EAP page.

Develop with pleasure!
