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.
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.
