PhpStorm 2020.1.2 is released

PhpStorm 2020.1.2 is now available!

This second minor update for PhpStorm 2020.1 introduces support for WSL 2 and also contains important bug fixes.

WSL 2 Support

WSL 2 is a new version of the Windows Subsystem for Linux architecture that allows Windows to run Linux binaries. PhpStorm has supported WSL 1 since v2019.3, and now it supports WSL 2 as well.

You can run PhpStorm on a Windows machine and target Linux environments without any hassle.

  • To get started, make sure you have enabled WSL on your Windows 10 version 2004 machine, and also make sure you have the Linux distribution of your choice installed. See the installation guide.
  • After installing PHP in your WSL environment, you’re ready to set up PhpStorm. Add a CLI interpreter under File | Settings | Languages & Frameworks | PHP


    • Once this is done, you can use the specified interpreter to run and debug any scripts and to execute Composer commands, PHPUnit tests, and quality tools.


    One thing that’s still missing is support for Docker via WSL 2 (WI-53396).
