Early Access Program

PhpStorm 6 EAP build 124.373

One more EAP for these holidays – many fixes and some features:

  • PHP type inference for “fluent interface” call chains (@return $this / @return static) will infere the proper type – which is known only at at point of reference. Note that one important case is still not supported – assigning result of such a call returning $this/static to variable
  • New PHP refactoring: move class to another namespace
  • REST Client plugin included
  • More details on PHP changes available in tracker

We are working on improved type inference, composer support and framework integration, although features will take some time to show up.

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.

Download PhpStorm 6.0 EAP for your platform from project EAP page. Patch-update is also available.

Develop with pleasure!
