PhpStorm 2016.2 Early Access Program Started

Posted on by Anna Lebedeva

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.
PhpStorm_splash2016_2_EAP

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.

See the complete list in our issue tracker and read the full release notes for PhpStorm 2016.2 EAP 162.426.

Download PhpStorm 2016.2 EAP build 162.426 for your platform from project EAP page, and please report any bugs and feature requests to our issue tracker.

    Does this version includes the improvements for Angular2 support in WebStorm 2016.2 EAP ?

    • Anna Lebedeva says:

      May 25, 2016

      Yes, the changes from WebStorm 2016.2 EAP are included.

        What about React props autocomplete/hints announced for WebStorm 2016.2 EAP? It seems it is not included in PhpStorm 2016.2 EAP

    No auto update for 145.1503 EAP?

    • Maxim Kolmakov says:

      May 25, 2016

      Unfortunately, no. 145.1503 EAP was an EAP for minor update and as such was very stable but this one is a first EAP for the new version so the stability may be much worse.

      On the other hand we’ve provided patch from 145.1503 EAP -> 2016.1.2 release.

    Immediately upon opening the new version, it prompts to update to 162.462, but the only downloads available are for 162.426.

      Same problem here. Probably a type from Jetbrains side 🙂

      • Maxim Kolmakov says:

        May 25, 2016

        It was indeed a typo. Sorry about this. Should be fixed now.

    • Maxim Kolmakov says:

      Sorry about this. Fixed.

    I have problem with git push after update from 2016.1.2. No prompt for password or master password is shown, but I get error “Push failed with error: Authentication failed”. I used master password in previous version and everything was ok with same repository.

    • Anna Lebedeva says:

      May 25, 2016

      @martinhloek:disqus just to make sure, are you talking now about 2016.2 EAP or the minor update 2016.1.2?

      • Martin Hložek says:

        May 25, 2016

        I just unzip 2016.2 EAP over 2016.1.2 (I know, it is not recommended 🙂 and all repositories was unaccassable (auth failed).
        I have fresh install of EAP 2016.2 now and everything seems to be fine. I suppose there is some incompatibility between stable 2016.1.2 and 2016,2 EAP?

    Build is completely borked. My project won’t load. I see these errors:

    25/05/16

    2:15 PM NoClassDefFoundError: com/intellij/lang/javascript/compiler/ui/JSLanguageCompilerToolWindowManager

    2:15 PM NoClassDefFoundError

    Error while indexing /home/mpenner/wxgqls/testQueries.graphql

    To reindex this file IDEA has to be restarted: com/intellij/lang/javascript/compiler/ui/JSLanguageCompilerToolWindowManager

      Could you please try to unpack PhpStorm in a completely new folder?

  6. Michał Motyczko says:

    Could you please add md5 or sha256 checksum on eap download page?

    • Maxim Kolmakov says:

      May 30, 2016

      Thank you for the idea. We will try to provide sha256 checksum for EAP starting from the next update.

    It’s not related this build but why you don’t use .gitignore file when I use Git as VCS? So it’s totally confusing. I just added some files to ignore list via interface but git is still able to see it.
