Early Access Program

PhpStorm 2016.2 Early Access Program Started

Great news: we are starting the Early Access Program for PhpStorm 2016.2! The fresh build 162.426 is available for download and we are eagerly awaiting your feedback in the issue tracker.

This build includes new features, bug fixes and improvements for PHP and the Web, and takes on the latest improvements in IntelliJ Platform.

The key changes on the PHP side include:

  • Better Joomla! support
  • Values of class constants are shown in completion lists
  • New option, “Do not show warning for unused parameters in anonymous functions”
  • Fixed freezes in Remote Host tab when Remote Server is unavailable

From the Platform and Web sides, this build brings:

  • Improvements in working with patches. Patches can now be applied from the clipboard or by dragging a file into the IDE. In case a file has been moved or renamed since a patch was created for it, the IDE will try to figure that out or let you manually choose the file to apply the patch to.
  • Drag images, JavaScript or CSS files into the HTML file in the editor to automatically generate img, script or tags for them.
  • The Windows installer now comes with our custom JDK build that addresses some known issues with focus and font rendering.
  • The Watches views has been merged with Variables for more convenience.
  • Commit dialog now shows unversioned files.
