PhpStorm 2017.1.2 is out

New bug-fix update PhpStorm 2017.1.2 (build 171.4249.3) is now available! You can download it here, in JetBrains Toolbox App or if you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2017.1.1, you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update.

This build brings bugfixes for the most annoying issues from the last update. In addition, it delivers a couple of new features. The most important changes include:

  • Fixed highlighting of concatenated strings for custom color schemes
  • Fixed REST client
  • New folding for <?php ?> blocks
  • Optimized memory usage for large XDebug profiler snapshots
  • Fixed class method displayed as italic if name coincides with any internal function

New folding for <?php ?> blocks

In this build, we’ve added a new folding of <?php ... ?>  blocks that can help editing template files with mixed HTML and PHP code.


See the full list of bug-fixes and improvements list in our issue tracker and in the complete release notes.

Download PhpStorm 2017.1.2 build 171.4249.3 for your platform or click “Update” in your JetBrains Toolbox App and please do report any bugs and feature request to our Issue Tracker.

    > …folding of php blocks that can help editing template files with mixed HTML and PHP code…

    Sounds great, let’s see

  • Sergey Black

    Add formatting to Request body to text section to rest client. It does not save formatting now, so it is useless

  • agung andika

    Well… I need to re-download again the whole installer rather than “patched” only files?

    • Nikhil Jain

      This happens because there is not patch file for your version to the current new version.(more than one version difference).

      To resolve this I selected “Do not remind me for this update”.
      Then check for Update, PHPstorm will prompt for Previous Version-> Update.
      then goto settings to and remove ignored updates.
      Then check again from update.

        Got “You already have the latest version of PhpStorm installed”.

        • Nikhil Jain

          Check for ignored versions the mid version might also be in ignored list.

        i think my situation is as your describe, but my PHPStorm wont update from 2017.1 to 2017.1.1. After restart, it appears to be 2017.1 and “Check for updates” show update for 2017.1.1
        Anybody please help me out :(

        • Solo Tran Riding

          fixed 😀

      • Anatoliy Astakhov

        Thank you very much!

      • The Caracal

        Have tried this nothing worked, I’m now trying jetbrains toolbox but that is asking me to remove PHPstorm completely before installing new version. If I do this will all my settings persist?

      • Casual Coder

        Wow! Using this flow I was able to update PhpStorm from 2017.1.1 to .1.2 to .1.3. to .1.4 !!
        Thanks a lot Nikhil for sharing this info :)

  • Mifas

    I’m using windows 10, I cannot update. getting following error.
    Failed to prepare an update:
    Temp directory inside installation: G:PhpStorm_Windows.PhpStormsystemtmppatch-update

    • Dmitry Tronin

      What about this G drive? Is it some usb/network mount? As a workaround try to download a full installation file from our site.

      • Mifas

        It’s another partition.

  • Solo Tran Riding

    I write this message to anybody got into situation like me: My current version is 2017.1 , I want to update to 2017.1.2 . But PhpStorm wont allow to jump update ( 2017.1 -> 2017.1.1 -> 2017.1.2) . As Nikhil Jain suggested: choose option “ignore update” – 2017.1.2 , then check for update again to update from 2017.1 -> 2017.1.1 . But PhpStorm keeps appearing as 2017.1 after update.
    Here is my solution: root cause (as i guess) is your opening project which has errors with plugin (i checked idea.log – -> All you need to do is go to “File – Close Project” , then “Check for update” there, everything run smoothly for me at that moment.
    I really dislike this situation. Please, PhpStorm notice this.

    • Dmitry Tronin

      Updates between major versions (2016.* > 2017.*) require a full installation

    • Eugene Morozov

      What goes wrong when you click Help | Check for updates?
      Does it fail, or it can’t find suitable updates?

  • Jan

    In older version of PhpStorm I had in bin/ under Windows

    This is not working any more :(
    Don’t you know how to get my right alt to work back again? Since I use czech keyboard I need right Alt To work as before …

    • Jan

      Ahaa, PhpStorm is now installed in Program Files, not as before in ProgramFiles (x86) so problem is solved, now it works …

  • Chris

    FYI: I uninstalled PHPStorm, and installed it from the Toolbox app instead… it kept all my settings. (I’m on OSX)
