PhpStorm 2017.1.4 is out

Posted on by Anna Lebedeva

New bug-fix update PhpStorm 2017.1.4 (build 171.4694.2) is now available! You can download it here, in JetBrains Toolbox App or if you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2017.1.3, you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update.

This build delivers bug fixes and improvements for PHP and the Web, and takes on the latest improvements in IntelliJ Platform.  Also, it brings a new feature:

Class Name Completion works inside string literals

Now you can invoke Class Name Completion (Ctrl-Alt-Space) or invoke completion twice (Ctrl-Space) inside any string literal to get a completion list of all available classes, interfaces, and traits.


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

Download PhpStorm 2017.1.4 build 171.4694.2 for your platform or click “Update” in your JetBrains Toolbox App and please do report any bugs and feature request to our Issue Tracker.

      Should be OK now.

        I guess the problem is that I’m on 2017.2 EAP =)

        • Vladimir Luchansky says:

          Ha! 🙂 Well, of course, it won’t give you an update from 2017.2 to 2017.1.

    Find in Path > Open file > still sometimes frozes editor and interface and I must open ex. preferences to “unfreeze” 🙁

    Can not download update via the phpstorm’s “update and restart” button.

    Failed to prepare an update: Cannot download ‘’: Received fatal alert: handshake_failure Open download page.

      As always… this is never working. Since years… Do not have any hope of it getting better. And btw. yes i did a full download/install of the last release (as always).

        Could you please check whether “File | Settings | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates | Use secure connection” help? Btw you can also try JetBrains Toolbox:

    • Maxim Kolmakov says:

      May 17, 2017

      Does turning off “File | Settings | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates | Use secure connection” help?

      • Hast says:

        May 17, 2017

        Yes, it works.

    Much, much wanted feature!

    May 17, 2017

    Why not using ClassName::class? Much easier then IDE completion.

      I guess, you should ask this in WordPress blog – the screenshot above is a typical wordpress example.

    Amazing thanks guys, loving the new features!

    What I’d like to know is why don’t you just UPDATE when I find this? Why do I have to go to your website and download an installer?

    • Brian Sulzen says:

      May 22, 2017

      You’ll need to click “ignore this update”, then go back to help > check for updates and update to the latest patch. Once that update is complete, go back into the ignored updates and remove the entry. Once removed you will be able to update to 2017.1.4. Basically there is no direct update path between your current version and the latest version.

      • Harry Talamini says:

        This is exactly what I needed!

      • Carlos says:

        Thanks! Unbelievable that this is not handled automatically (or at least made clear what the process should be).

      • Deividas Simas says:

        June 20, 2017

        I believe it takes way too long to remove all the ignored versions and applying patches to every single subversion every time, so it would be wiser to download a whole installer in the end

        • Brian Sulzen says:

          June 20, 2017

          or just turn on auto updates

        • Vladimir Luchansky says:

          June 21, 2017

          or use Toolbox app 🙂

      • Abdel Karim Mateos Sanchez says:

        On Mac OS X notHelp -> Check updates. And if you go to PHPSotorm -> Check for updates, go to same screen for download update

    • Vladimir Luchansky says:

      May 24, 2017

      From what version were you not able to update? Was it 2017.1.3?

      • Scott Grosch says:

        May 26, 2017

        No clue as I’ve already done the update. I use this almost daily though, so at the oldest I would have been 2017.1.2

        • Vladimir Luchansky says:

          May 29, 2017

          Thanks! I would advise to get the Toolbox app – painless way to manage your JetBrains products and their updates.

      • Thom Heemstra says:

        I wasn’t able to update from 2017.1, manual update worked.

    • Félix Gagnon-Grenier says:

      June 15, 2017

      I for one have no problem with that. Also, most minor updates can be done from the ide!

    My toolbox shows no updates available after “check for updates” yet I don’t have this version installed.

  11. Julia Koelsch says:

    I have the Jetbrains toolbox. In the “All Tools” section, it shows PHPStorm, and says I have to delete it and then install it thru the Toolbox because it was installed manually. I delete it, and then the “All Tools” section is blank. I see no way to install PHPStorm through the Toolbox. I looked at the settings, and I’m logged in to my Jetbrains account, and the Toolbox is up to date. I restart the Toolbox. No different. I manually install PHPStorm, and the message is back, saying I need to uninstall it because it was manually installed. So, I click “Give Feedback” from the Toolbox menu, hoping to get some help, and it takes me to a page that says “You have no permissions to view this page”. What am I doing wrong?

    • Eugene Morozov says:

      June 19, 2017

      What OS do you use?
      Anyways, please try uninstalling PhpStorm using the OS built-in tools to make Toolbox forget that PhpStorm was installed.

    1. The download on is for 2017.1.2
    2. Updating from 2017.1.3 (or 2017.1.2) to 2017.1.4 requires admin privileges, even if PHPStorm isn’t installed for all users

    Because of the 2 issues above, it’s not possible for me to actually upgrade to 2017.1.4, can you provide a direct link to the 2017.1.4 installer please?

  13. Raja Ait Lahrir says:

    I have my codeception installed in a docker container, and I need to set the executable path in my PHPStorm installed in my local machine.

    Any help please?

    Kind regards
