    Thanks for the prompt updates jetbrains team!

      You’re welcome!

    So when can we do these patch level updates in the app? I find my self skipping most of these cause it’s quite a pain to download a whole new install file just for a few fixes.

    • Artem Khvastunov

      The thing is if you don’t skip updates you get patches as we usually prepare them only between sequential builds. Or you can use Toolbox App which is able to apply patches one by one.

        In my case I didn’t skip any update/patch, but I still can’t update from the app (just a “Blog / Download” button to this page) and the Toolbox App gives me a “No updates available”… More than having to download a full install again, having to do it manually is the real pain…

        • Vladimir Luchansky

          Are you running 2017.3.3 now and there’s only Blog/Download option and Toolbox shows “No updates”?
          Would be great if you could restart Toolbox app and check again – updates should be available everywhere now.

          • Gerardo Pose

            I have the same problem. I’m running 2017.3, didn’t skip any updates and only have the blog / download button. How do you restart de toolbox app?

          • Vladimir Luchansky

            Are you running 2017.3.3?

            You can always right click the Toolbox app and exit it, then just start it again (depends on your OS).

  • Yohm

    Is there no way to update automatically from the app? On the Mac OS prompt I only have the “Blog / Download” button that opens a browser to this page, and the toolbox app tells me there’s “No update available”… (I don’t think I skipped any update/patch)

  • Tim Hawkins

    Is it possible to add something to the toolbox app that allows you to get the changelog on a new update, they are a PITA to find on the site.

  • Vivek Sandran

    I am getting Blog/Download button, when i click it its redirect to this url, i couldnt download the patch from inside app, i installed toolbox after i installed phpstorm so it says to re install the software, someone fix it…… only choice i have is to reinstall the phpstorm, this is not a proper solution for just installing a patch update for software…

    • Vladimir Luchansky

      What PhpStorm version do you run now? Did you check ?
      Toolbox app cannot update applications that were installed manually, you get the updates when you install app via Toolbox. So uninstalling all manually added apps and then installing it from Toolbox will help to get rid from all the update issues.

  • Chris Burgess

    Is Toolbox app available to regular users or is it a licensed product? If I follow the Toolbox link above, I get promo about an “All Products Pack” and link to store (at which point the Toolbox trail goes cold). Can we download and use Toolbox without purchasing All Products Pack, or are they the same thing?

  • Boris Betzholz

    unter high sierra i got performance issue, the autocompletion is not working properly…

  • Ahmet Hakan Beşel

    I have education license I can’t download Jetbrains Toolbox app. How can I auto-update software?

    • Vladimir Luchansky

      Use Help > Check for Updates. Also check this post: .

      • Quentin Pain

        Going to “Help > Check for Updates” doesn’t update the app – it just has a new button “blog/download” that goes to an unhelpful page about some toolbox app I’ve never heard of before – but THANK you for pointing to me to that other link – that has what I’m looking for.

  • Steen Rabol

    Why can the app not update itself… come on guys, it is 2018, not 1970!

  • BenBachrach

    I get notices in phpStorm that there is an update. But when I follow the link, I get a page that says: PhpStorm 2017.3.4 build 173.4548.32 is now available! You can download it here, in JetBrains Toolbox App or if you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2017.3.3, you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update. I used to get notifications of patch updates, but this past year, I don’t recall ever getting a patch notification. A few times I have downloaded the new release, but then I never seem to get any patch notifications. My install says I now have 2017.3.2 – so I must have missed a notice. But I never saw a patch notice for 2017.3.3. Was a patch notice sent for 2017.3.3? Am I right, that to get current, I need to download the full version?

  • Quentin Pain

    Here’s how to overcome the update issues. I put this together from the help below plus what I found when trying to get PHPStorm to update. This assumes you don’t have the new toolbox app (which I’d never heard of till I came here for help in trying to find out why updating suddenly became so hard – I had no idea I’d missed an update – and that’s how we all get into this problem).
    1. Go here:
    2. Follow those instructions precisely – BUT – bear in mind step 6 is ambiguous if you’ve missed more than one step – what it means is delete ONLY ONE of the skipped updates – the OLDEST one (in my case it was shown at the bottom of the list). Click the OK button in the Ignored Updates dialog when you’ve deleted the oldest update version number text line.
    3. Click on the Check Now button again and the next update should be shown ready for you to click the Update and Restart button.
    4. After it’s restarted, repeat the whole process exactly as above until there are no more skipped updates.
    Now I’ve done this, I will go an download the toolbox as and try that for future updates.
    Hope this was helpful.
