    When is the final release? In PhpStorm 2017.3 there is no possibility to undock the tool windows. CPU explodes, everything stops, nothings works.

    So, please give us a date of 2018.1

      The release is just around the corner. We’re planning to release it till the end of March. Please stay tuned!

    I’m still having trouble with 2018.1 loosing keystrokes when the system becomes laggy. 2017.3 is queuing keystrokes and applying them when it gets going again. 2018.1 does not have that (correct) behavior.

      This should be fixed in officially released 2018.1 – already available at !

    • Maxim Kolmakov

      Please disregard Vladimir comment. The issue will be fixed in 2018.1.1 update.

        Confirmed, not fixed in 2018.1.
