Import Cleanup Improvements in PhpStorm 2016.2
We’ve made some improvements in the way that unused `use` statements are detected in PhpStorm 2016.2.

In 2016.2 we’ve fixed that, and now give the correct warnings for imported classes, constants and functions that aren’t used. These unused imports will also get removed when triggering the Reformat Code tool, and when Optimize imports are selected.
