PhpStorm 7.1 update released: Search Everywhere, Lens Mode, SVN 1.8, Bug Fixes, Improvements & more

It’s only been a few months since the release of PhpStorm 7 but we’re glad to announce a fresh update – let it be our present for upcoming holidays.

PhpStorm 7.1 update brings a bunch of features, bug fixes and improvements for PHP & web related technologies, as well as all changes from the significantly improved IntelliJ IDEA 13 platform.

Download PhpStorm 7.1 right now!

On the PHP side:

  • Exception breakpoints and Xdebug jit option support
  • Full Doctrine-style PHP Annotations support via updated Open API
  • A way to document mixins regardless of PHP version: PhpStorm will interpret @mixin annotation the same way as actual “use trait” – see WI-1730
  • VCS-friendly Deployment configs: deployment mappings and excluded paths are now saved in .idea/deployment.xml. They are mapped to servers by names, see WI-715 for more information
  • Clickable @link URLs in editor
  • Special treatment for protected member access on @var-declared $this in Views
  • Parameter name suggestion based on its type name
  • and many other bug fixes and improvements.

On the web side:

  • Mocha framework integration
  • Improved support for Dart language
  • LESS 1.5.0 is supported

PhpStorm 7.1 update bring you completely in sync with the recently released IntelliJ IDEA 13 platform, delivering a lot of fixes, improvements and features, such as:

  • Search Everywhere
    We are sure you are taking advantage of Navigate to Class/File/Symbol, Find Action and other advanced navigation features, but why not use a brand new powerful Search Everywhere to find a class, file, action or even an IDE setting always using the same action?
    Just try it with the icon  on the top-right or invoke it with Double-Shift.

  • Lens Mode
    Hover the mouse over a warning, error strip or just some section on the scroll bar, and PhpStorm shows you the source code fragment annotated with the warning/error message.

  • The new PhpStorm interface is even more minimalistic and functional with the toolbar and tool window buttons hidden by default. You can always invoke View | Toolbar and View | Tool Buttons (or just icon on the left-bottom) if you would like to get it back.

  • Speed Search
    The new Speed Search makes it easier for you to navigate over the items thanks to highlighting matches.

  • Navigate to folder
    You can navigate to a folder just as quickly as to a file, by using Navigate to File action.

  • Better performance with faster Find Usages and Navigate to Actions, and more responsive editor during indexing. Frequently used symbols now appear in the results of Find Usages faster than before.
  • Find in Strings and Comments: take advantage of improved Find in Path action with ability to look through comments and String literals (you can search over the project using specific scopes).

  • New fast and powerful log viewer for Git and Mercurial.

  • Support for Subversion 1.8 (via the native client).
  • Even more Database tools and SQL support improvements.
  • Retina support in JDK 7 (more information).
  • and much more… (see IntelliJ IDEA 13 what’s new page for more information)

Download a 30-day trial for your platform right now from the web site. A patch-update from the previous version is not available this time.

PhpStorm 7.1 is a free update for you if you purchased your license after October 22, 2012!

Develop with pleasure!
