PhpStorm 2020.1 EAP build #8

Posted on by Roman Pronskiy

The Early Access Program for 2020.1 release cycle is getting close to a finish. We are focusing on stabilizing and polishing things, and we would especially appreciate your feedback and bug reports at this time.

This build includes support for PHP in the Grazie spell-checker, some fixes for PHP, and the latest updates from WebStorm, DataGrip, and the IntelliJ Platform.

Download PhpStorm 2020.1 EAP from the EAP page or via the JetBrains Toolbox App.

Check out the What’s Coming in PhpStorm 2020.1 video series on our JetBrains YouTube channel with overviews of all the new features! We’ve already published Episode 5 and there is more to come.

Grazie spell-checker now works in PHP

PhpStorm 2020.1 will come with an advanced spelling and grammar checker called Grazie. We’ve described this helpful tool in a previous EAP post, and you can also learn more about it by watching this video.

In this EAP build, we’ve added support for advanced grammar checks of texts in PHP such as HEREDOC and NOWDOC strings, PHPDoc blocks, and arbitrary string literals.

It’s turned off for PHP by default. To enable it, select the PHP option under Preferences/Settings | Editor | Proofreading | Grammar and make sure you have the Grammar inspection enabled under Preferences/Settings | Editor | Inspections -> Proofreading.

You’ll see the typos and mistakes highlighted, and just like with errors in the code, you can use a quick-fix (press Alt+Enter) to correct them.


The full list of changes in this build is available in the release notes.

Please report any problems you find to our issue tracker, Twitter, or by commenting on this post!

    I personally never needed spellchecker and always turned it off. IMO, this is not the top-priority functionality.

    New SSH config and “Start ssh session” is still not fixed

    If you release like that – you’ll again get a huge number of unhappy users, who do not use EAPs and are not aware of what is coming (just remember how it was with colored phpdocs).
