The new PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build (171.2152) is now available! You can download it here, in JetBrains Toolbox or, if you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build (171.2014), 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.
New code style setting: blank lines before namespace
We’ve added a new code style setting to specify the minimum blank lines before namespace. Now you are able to tune this part according to your preferred code style. The default value is set to 1.
Align assignment now affects shorthand operators
Now the option Settings|Code Style|PHP|Wrapping and Braces|Assignment Statement|Align consecutive assignments takes into account shorthand operators.
“Download from…” option in deployment
On your request, we’ve implemented an option “Download from…” in deployment actions that allows choosing from which server file or folder should be downloaded. Before the introduction of this option, files could be downloaded only from a default deployment server.
New “Copy Type” and “Jump to Type Source” actions from the Debugger Variables View
We’ve added two new actions to Debugger Variables View: Jump to Type Source and Copy Type. Jump to Type Source allows you to navigate directly to the class of the current variable to inspect its code. While Copy Type action copies the type of the variable into the clipboard for later usage in your code or for sending it as a reference to your colleague.
