PhpStorm 2018.2 EAP 182.3208.33

The new PhpStorm 2018.2 EAP build (182.3208.33) is now available! You can download it here or via JetBrains Toolbox App. Or, if you have the previous PhpStorm 2018.2 EAP build (182.2949.27) 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 includes the latest improvements from IntelliJ Platform.

Improved SQL injections: support for dynamic field and table names, constant substitutions, sprintf support

In version 8, PhpStorm introduced basic support for string concatenations in Language Injections. The dynamic nature of the resulting strings and the strictness of SQL parser caused a lot false positive errors in SQL.

In PhpStorm 2018.2 EAP, we’ve eliminated most such errors and introduced some new features, too. PhpStorm can now substitute the values of constants directly within the injected string, so you can run a query without copy-pasting their values. We’ve also added support for SQL strings that use sprintf parameters.


HTTP Client: Support formatting of POST request body

PhpStorm 2018.2 helps you keep your HTTP requests tidy by providing POST request bodies formatting depending on the Content-Type. To use it, simply invoke the Code|Reformat code action.

Please be aware that formatting HTTP requests with variables in the request body is currently not supported (WI-42463). To format such a request, press Alt+Enter, choose Edit JSON/XML fragment, and then invoke the Reformat action in the opened tab.


In addition to new features, this build brings many major bug fixes and usability improvements including:

  • Find usages: Find usages didn’t work on multiresolved references for class members WI-5467
  • New delete GIT tag action IDEA-147018
  • Application-level File Watchers WEB-12478

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