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
