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

PHP 7.1: Support square bracket syntax for array destructuring assignment

PHP 7.1 support is improved and includes now square bracket syntax for array destructing assignments. We’ve also updated “Language level inspection” and implemented a quick fix for fast language level change.

    Since the update, PhpStorm freeze for ~2s each time I ctrl+S, any idea why? We are 2 developers in my team with the same problem, going back to the previous version makes it work again!

      It looks like some File Watcher is triggered and freezes PhpStorm. To get to the bottom of the issue please contact our support team Help->New Support Request.

    I have PHPStorm 2016.2.2 (build 162.2380.11) and I get a popup telling me the update is ready for download but its not updateable via PHPStorm itself. Should I just download and install the new version?

    • Maxim Kolmakov

      Yes, please. Unfortunately we were not able to provide a patch between 2016.2.2 to 2016.3.

    Is there any step by step guide how to safely uninstall and install a new update without any loss of the existing settings in build 2016.2.2? I’ve spent so much time tuning the existing version, I can’t really take any risks applying a new build. Are there any patches in the nearer future that will allow to safely update the existing 2016.2.2. build without uninstalling it? Thanks!
