PhpStorm 2022.3 Beta 2
In this build, you can try a new way to work with projects in WSL2.
A new way to work with projects in WSL2
PhpStom 2022.3 brings an alternative way to work with projects running in WSL2 file systems. Instead of running a full IDE on Windows, your IDE backend will launch directly in WSL2 itself. Then you connect to it the same way you would connect to any remote machine when using remote development in PhpStorm. This can provide better IDE performance when working with projects in WSL2.
Important note on the new Settings Sync plugin
With the PhpStorm 2022.3 EAP, we introduced the new Settings Sync solution, described in detail in this blog post. Here are two more important points about switching to the new solution:
- If you are using PhpStorm 2022.2.x or earlier with the old Settings Sync plugin and want to enable the new plugin on v2022.3, your settings will be migrated from the older version, but they won’t be synchronized between v2022.2 and v2022.3 afterward.
The Settings Repository plugin has been unbundled. If you’re using it, your settings will be migrated when upgrading to v2022.3, but the new Settings Sync plugin won’t be turned on automatically. If you want to keep on using the Settings Repository plugin, you can install it manually from JetBrains Marketplace.
See the release notes for the complete list of changes in the Beta build.
