PhpStorm 2018.2.2 build 182.4129.45 is now available! You can download it here or in JetBrains Toolbox App. If you have installed the previous PhpStorm 2018.2 or PhpStorm 2018.2.2 EAP build (182.4129.18), please invoke the Check for updates action to receive the latest update.

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