PhpStorm 2017.1 Early Access Program is Open

Today we start the Early Access Program for PhpStorm 2017.1 (EAP). A fresh build 171.1834 is available for download and in JetBrains Toolbox App.

What is Early Access Program?

Early Access Program allows you to try pre-release versions of our software to evaluate features that will be added in the next release. It is important to distinguish EAP from traditional pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be far below even usual beta standards. If you are looking for a stable version of PhpStorm, please visit our site.
