PhpStorm & WebStorm 6.0 Early Access Program started

We are happy to announce the first public build of PhpStorm & WebStorm 6.0!


There’s a lot of changes. We started to work on core language features and later will show some love to tools and frameworks. The most visible of what’s already available today:

  • PHP
    • Automatic generation of “use” clauses on class name completion
    • Change signature refactoring
    • Pull up/Push down for class members refactoring
    • Better runtime error prevention – more problems will be caught by code analyser
  • JavaScript
    • TypeScript support: coding assistance & debugging via source maps
    • Dart support is now integrated into WebStorm
  • General
    • Darcula – completely dark IDE interface option

We’ll publish a series of blog posts on these and other new features. Also, much more is coming!

As usual, bear in mind that you are getting a snapshot of work in progress and product will undergo series of technical and cosmetic changes.

  • EAP users should know the drill, but since this is a major upgrade – we’ll repeat:
    BACK UP YOUR PROJECT INFO BEFORE 1st RUN
  • IDE Configs are stored in a separate folder, so all previous builds are unaffected by this one. Plus – automatic import will finally pick old ones up for you on the first run
  • 3rd party plugins may cease to work with this build – ping authors for platform 12 support, we’ll gladly help them in case of trouble

Download PhpStorm & WebStorm 6.0 EAP build 122.864 for your platform from project EAP page.

Develop with pleasure!
