PhpStorm 2018.2.1 is released

This build delivers new features, bug fixes and improvements for PHP and the Web, and takes on the latest improvements in IntelliJ Platform.

New option to disable requirement of PHP bundled extensions in composer.json

New option to disable requirement of bundled PHP extensions in composer.json
PhpStorm 2018.2 introduced a new inspection that helps you to maintain the list of extensions used in a project in composer.json’s require section (e.g., ext-mbstring). If you’ve used a class or function from an unlisted PHP extension, you got the corresponding warning.

Since there are different opinions on whether to report missing bundled extensions or not, PhpStorm now provides you with full control. The behavior is regulated by Settings | Editor | Inspections | PHP | Composer | Extension is missing in composer.json | Require PHP bundled extensions checkbox.

  • Docker-compose PHPUnit with coverage fails WI-42544
  • IAE in EffectPainter2D IDEA-195614
