Below is a roundup of the most notable new features for the upcoming 2020.3 release. The links will take you to the EAP posts published over the last few months, which contain detailed descriptions of each feature.


Psalm and PHPStan

PhpStorm comes with support for popular static analysis tools and allows using them as first-class tools for highlighting code issues, as well as support for Psalm annotations and types.

Xdebug 3

The major update of the Xdebug PHP debugger extension, Xdebug 3, is supported in PhpStorm. Whether you use an older version or the new Xdebug 3, PhpStorm works fine with both. The IDE handles configuration variance for you.

Code With Me

PhpStorm 2020.3 adds support for Code With Me – a JetBrains tool for collaborative development and pair programming.

Tailwind CSS

The popular framework for UI development is supported in PhpStorm 2020.3. The support comes with autocompletion for classes in the @apply directive and for pseudo-class variants, and much more.

HTTP Client


  • The Markdown editor now supports previewing Mermaid.js diagrams. Also, the preview window can scroll automatically in sync with the editor area.
  • We’ve updated the grammar and spelling checker – it now works faster and provides the most probable fix options for mistakes.
  • You can now split the editor by simply dragging and dropping a tab, or with a shortcut from the project view.
  • The new preview tab lets you quickly view files without opening them in the editor.


Version Control

Web Technologies

These are just the most important enhancements in the upcoming PhpStorm 2020.3. If you’d like to learn more, check out the What’s coming in PhpStorm 2020.3 playlist on our YouTube channel, JetBrainsTV.
