PhpStorm 2017.3.2 is released

PhpStorm 2017.3.2 build 173.4127.29 is now available! You can download it here, in JetBrains Toolbox App or if you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2017.3.1 or PhpStorm 2017.3.2 EAP build (173.4127.13), 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.

REST Client: Support Basic and Digest authentication

In this build, we’ve implemented Basic and Digest authentication for the new REST client. For Basic authorization, you have to generate a base64-encoded string that represents your username and password. That may become cumbersome very soon so PhpStorm will do that now automatically for you. PhpStorm also gets you covered with more secure Digest authorization that can be very hard to emulate since it requires multi-step negotiation.

In both cases, you just need to configure username and password in Authorization header and PhpStorm will perform other steps automatically.


Notable bug fixes and features worth mentioning:

  • Unhandled exception shouldn’t be reported for tests with @expectedException: WI-38998
  • Improved discoverability of Recursive Search in Find Window: IDEA-175611

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

Download PhpStorm 2017.3.2 build 173.4127.29 for your platform or click “Update” in your JetBrains Toolbox App and please do report any bugs and feature request to our Issue Tracker.

    The IDE says there is an update but there is no option to install it. Options are “ignore”, “remind me later”, and a link to this blog.

      If you have PhpStorm 2017.3 (not 2017.3.1) you have to go through cumbersome procedure: or install a new version via Toolbox that will mange sequential updates for you.
      If you have 2017.3.1 please contact our support team since the update should be available already.

        Hi Maxim,

        I am using the PhpStorm 2017.3.1 and having the exact same issue like @piratemart:disqus has. Can you please advise how to download or upgrade it? Thanks.

        • Maxim Kolmakov

          What happens when you invoke Check for Updates action?

          • Rustam Aliev

            I was able to update it now, thanks for your follow up!

    I’m on – PhpStorm 2017.3 – Build #PS-173.3727.138, built on November 28, 2017

    and don’t have an automatic update to this version. After about 10 times of going to a website, redownloading a massive binary and doing that. I don’t want to anymore. I have no ignored versions yet no patch available.

    • Maxim Kolmakov

      Unfortunately, we don’t provide cumulative patches in the IDE so there is no direct update from 2017.3 to 2017.3.2. From IDE, there is only from 2017.3.1 to 2017.3.2. On the other hand, JetBrains Toolbox can upgrade from any version to the latest:

      • Connor Tumbleson

        How come I didn’t get the IDE update from 2017.3 to 2017.3.1? I have no versions ignored. I am trying to prevent ever having to download these massive binaries or install another application.

        • Vladimir Luchansky

          Not sure what could be the case. If you ignore 2017.3.2, are you able to get the 2017.3.1?

          • Jukka

            Can confirm that after you ignore the 2017.3.2 update and then check for updates again it will offer the 2017.3.1 update for you after which you can update to 2017.3.2. That is if you have the 2017.3 version.

          • Vladimir Luchansky
          • Connor Tumbleson

            Thank you. That worked. I must have missed the 2017.3.1 release.

      • Vladimir Luchansky

        What browser and web server do you use?

    +1 on the update issue

  • John

    When I started using PphStorm a few years ago, I thought it was an amazing IDE; I really loved it. Unfortunately, I got used to all its amazing features, and all I notice now is how PhpStorm can’t even update itself automatically. To paraphrase Prince: it updates like it’s a product from 1999.

    But it’s not 1999; when you read this, it’s probably 2018. Please, if a ticket exists to bring your update procedure into the current millennium, bump it to the top. If it doesn’t exist yet, create it and make it a high priority issue. Because that little popup that announces a new version is really making me hate your product: it just takes too much effort. (Tip: the popup should *always* contain a button “Update now.”)

    So still no fix for php alternative syntax open/closing highlighting?
