PhpStorm 2017.2 EAP 172.2953: improved UI for PHP settings page

The new PhpStorm 2017.2 EAP build (172.2953.13) is now available! You can download it here or via JetBrains Toolbox App. Or, if you have the previous PhpStorm 2017.2 EAP build (172.2827.17) 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.

Improved UI for PHP settings page

In the previous EAP, we’ve added a new feature which automatically detects and synchronize project configuration with enabled extensions for PHP interpreter. Thanks to the feedback from our users we found out that the UI was not clear enough. In this build, we’ve reworked it. Now the button “Sync Extensions with Interpreter” has been moved into the PHP runtime tab and became more visible (Settings | Languages & Frameworks | PHP). We’ve also removed previously added notification “Would you like to detect extensions…?”.
