An important part of our release cycle is the Early Access Program. It lasts for around 6-8 weeks, during which, we publish a fresh build each week with all the newest features we’re currently developing. Any PHP developer can download and use EAP builds for free. We really appreciate you using them and giving us your feedback. It is because of this that we are able to find and fix issues, and make PhpStorm better for everyone!
Let me just please take a second to say a big thank you to all the people, who have shared their product experience, feedback, and suggestions with us. Every insight we get from you helps us deliver to you an even better IDE with each release and EAP build!
Previously, as a token of our gratitude, we presented the most active evaluators with a free 1-year subscription for PhpStorm and a limited edition t-shirt.
This time we have something a little bit special for you! We are producing an exclusive PhpStorm elephpant! It is still work-in-progress, but it should be ready very soon. For now, check out some of the first mock-ups of the iconic PHP mascot in a PhpStorm flavor:
Meet the wonderful people who have contributed their feedback to help us create an even better PhpStorm and became the most active EAPers of 2019.1 release:
