The new PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build (171.2822) is now available! You can download it here or via JetBrains Toolbox App. Or, if you have the previous PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build (171.2613) installed, 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.
Support PHPDoc in Blade injections
Good news for Laravel developers, we are happy to announce a support of PHPDoc in Blade injections. Now you can provide a type of a variable inside a template to get code completion.
Recognition of PHP class names in strings
As many users requested, we’ve added a recognition of PHP class names in strings. Class references will be now added to string literals in single quotes that will help you to maintain correct name in Rename Refactoring and to navigate to classes more quickly.
Improvements in auto-import functionality
In this build, we’ve added improvements in auto-import functionality, including better alias support. The most notable feature is resolving and finding usages for class, function and constant aliases. That will help refactorings to be more robust.
Download PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build 171.2822 for your platform from the project EAP page or click “Update” in your JetBrains Toolbox App and please do report any bugs and feature request to our Issue Tracker.
