Early Access Program

PhpStorm 11 EAP 144.3168

We are glad to announce the start of Early Access Program for PhpStorm 11. A fresh build 144.3168 is available for download.

This build includes new features, bug fixes and improvements from the PHP, web and IntelliJ platform sides. From the PHP side, this build delivers:

  • SFTP Keep-Alive
  • Improved @method annotation support  (the same type syntax as @var annotation is recognized)
  • Completion in PhpDoc @see tag
  • and other bug fixes and improvements (see full list in our issue tracker).

Other changes from IntelliJ platform and web are also included, see complete release notes.

SFTP Keep-Alive Feature

We are happy to announce that work on the possibility not to break FTP/SFTP connection feature (Keep-Alive) is in progress.  Today’s PhpStorm EAP (and next EAPs for other IDEs) contains Keep-Alive feature for ​SFTP​ servers. By default it’s set to send Keep-Alive message once in 300 sec, and you can change it in server’s Advanced Settings….
Also now PhpStorm doesn’t close communication connection once upload/download is finished. That means that if the SFTP server sends keep-alive messages, PhpStorm replies to them, and keep-alive messages from server side are not necessary.

Download PhpStorm 11 EAP build 144.3168 for your platform from project EAP page and please report any bugs and feature request to our Issue Tracker.
