PhpStorm 2019.2.2 Preview

We’ve just released PhpStorm 2019.2, and today we are ready to give you a preview of the second bugfix update. Please try PhpStorm 2019.2.2 Preview build 192.6603.14 and share your feedback with us.

Improved Type Inference

We’ve made a lot of changes in the PHP type inference system, which affect the handling of $this/self/static return types. The following long-standing issues, as well as many others, are now fixed:

  • WI-28728 +18 Fixed: No code completion in foreach loop if array of object is generating from static method with static array type hint
  • WI-18067 +18 Fixed: Late Static Bindings errors on calls in non-static context
  • WI-38803 +13 Fixed: PHP 7 self return type incorrectly analyzed in chainned method calls
  • WI-29051 +12 Fixed: $this[]|static[] as return type breaks chained type hinting for variable with element access


Detailed Parameter Description

Have you ever wondered what exactly should be passed to the function or method as an argument? Previously you had to open Quick Documentation and scroll to the parameter description. Now you can press CTRL+P/CMD+P (Parameter Info) and view the description right away.


This Preview build brings with it other important bugfixes, performance and usability improvements, as well as regression fixes.

  • IDEA-153291 +36 Fixed: IDE opens on a last known location when external monitor is detached: outside of screen
