PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP 171.3566: IP for Zend Debugger, new Find In Path, highlighting of current editor tab

The new PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build (171.3566) is now available! You can download it here or via JetBrains Toolbox App. Or, if you have the previous PhpStorm 2017.1 EAP build (171.3224) 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.

Allow choosing IP to be sent to Zend Debugger

In this build, we’ve added a new option enabled by default, which automatically detects all host IPs to sent them to Zend Debugger. That’s especially important when working on a machine with multiple IPs, e.g. in the case of Vagrant/VirtualBox/VPN usage. You can also disable a checkbox and provide required IPs manually. The option can be found in Settings| PHP | Debug | Automatically detect IDE IP.


Redesigned Find In Path

We redesigned  “Find in Path” window, so you get more valuable information within the same frame. Now you have options and preview tab combined in a popup and can see the results of your search with more detailed preview. Let us know what you think!


Highlighting of current editor tab for Darcula

There is a request that active editor tab is too subtle, especially in Darcula, so we’ve introduced an additional highlighting with a blue line. It makes it easier to distinguish between the currently active editor tab and those around it.


Apart from new features, this build brings many bug fixes, including these:

  • Huge gutter icons in latest 2017.1 EAP: IDEA-168194
  • CommonJS: module functions not available when re-exporting module instance: WEB-17099
  • Dead key is processed in editor as a separate symbol JRE-208
