PhpStorm 6.0.1 released

We are ready to deliver PhpStorm 6.0.1 stable minor update including a set of very important fixes, performance improvements, and some new features:


  • The generic Factory Method pattern support was added.
    By adding simple external metadata you can help IDE to deduce return types from the invocation arguments. This will reduce the number of required @var annotations in code employing the pattern, wich is quite common in modern frameworks. More info on using metadata
  • PHP type inference for variables should now work with Fluent Interface style call chains more correctly – again removing the need for many @var annotations.
  • PHP completion for array indexes has been significantly improved, general completion performance is back to speed
  • PHP inspection got a couple of new ones – division by zero and invalid string operation
  • Change Signature refactoring now supports anonymous functions
  • New action “move method up/down”
  • Code formatting and indentation fixes
  • Smarty template engine support fixes
  • More details on changes are available in the issue tracker.

Moreover, PHP open API which has been announced earlier is being enhanced in this release. The introduced Extension Point also allows 3rd party plugin creators to provide type info automatically using framework’s established practices and configuration. The API is still unstable but we provide guidance. Check out tutorials on plugin development. Take a peek at the Symfony 2 plugin for example of recent development.
