PhpStorm 2016.3 EAP 163.5644

The new PhpStorm 2016.3 EAP build (163.5644) is now available! You can download it here or, if you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2016.3 EAP build (163.4830), you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update.

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

Among the other bugfixes, this build addresses the issue that prevented PhpStorm 2016.3 EAP from being used on macOS Sierra. Users of macOS Sierra, we’re kindly asking you to try this build and let us know if the issue is fully fixed for your.

Initial PHPSpec support

This build brings an initial support of PHPSpec within the editor. PhpStorm 2016.3 detects that PHPSpec is installed by composer and automatically suggests to enable a support. It can be also done manually in Settings|Languages & Frameworks|PHP|PHPSpec. After support is enabled PhpStorm is able to resolve PHPSpec methods, such as should*, will* and other methods within the Spec files. PhpStorm can also resolve methods of described class after $this. Now when you are working with PHPSpec in PhpStorm you will have code completion, navigation and proper inspections helping you working with the code.


Give it a try and stay tuned as we’re going to add PHPSpec run configurations soon in one of the next EAP builds.

Faster Search in Git Log

This build brings significant speed improvements to searching through Git Logs, such as Text, Author and Path filters.


Managing Git remotes

Now Git remotes can be managed in PhpStorm via VCSGitConfigure Remotes, where you can add, edit and remove remotes for every repository of the project. Note that adding a remote is also available in the Push dialog.
