  1. It would be nice if PhpStorm support mouse wheel for scrolling tab like firefox because I often get problem while open too many files. :)

    I can’t drag’n’drop files to PhpStorm any more!

    When I drag an xml file from my desktop (windows 7) to PhpStorm 2.1.3 or 2.1.4 it doesn’t open and the mouse cursor takes a form of crossed circle.

    In version 2.1.1 I’m able to open exactly the same file doing the same actions. Should I switch something in the setting or it is a bug?

  5. Simon says:

    I totally agree with William… Thank you very much!

    Thank you all! Never thought that a java-application can run that fast.

    What about automatically updating from 2.1.2? Haven’t reveived auto update to 2.1.3…

  8. Hermann says:

    I’m also interested in an auto update from 2.1.2 to 2.1.4 (and my colleagues are as well).
    Can we expect this in the next few weeks or would you rather suggest to use the download packages.

  9. Thomas Wacker says:

    You will get an enormous performance push, if you use Java 7 (JDK 1.7) with PhpStorm. With release 2.1.4 and Java 7 nearly all performance bottlenecks are gone! :-)

    I have a question about performance of this IDE. I have two computers: one computer works on linux(ubuntu) and another one works on Windows 7, Windows version works much slower then linux one, please help me with this problem, or clarify, what i can do to make phpstorm works faster on windows 7

  11. UnderXP says:

    Force PhpStorm use JRE 1.7 in Windows 7 (without install JDK):
    1) Dwnload JRE 7 (20 Mb) from oracle site
    2) Download Junction Magic from
    3) Install Junction Magic (it’s free), install JRE 7.
    4) Close PhpStorm (if it’s open).
    5) Rename folder C:\Program Files\JetBrains\PhpStorm\jre\jre to C:\Program Files\JetBrains\PhpStorm\jre\jre_old
    6) Create folder C:\Program Files\JetBrains\PhpStorm\jre\jre (yes, again !!!)
    7) Open Junction Magic, click “create…”, in “host folder” select C:\Program Files\JetBrains\PhpStorm\jre\jre, in “target folder” select C:\Program Files\Java\jre7. Click “create”, Dismiss warning.
    8) Enjoy PhpStorm with Java SE 7

    Is there any way to prolong opensource license? I mailed few days ago and still no answer. Not matter what answer – yes or no, just anything :(

  13. Hoof says:

    you dont need a symlink, just delete (or rename) the jre folder in the phpstorm installation forder and be sure that JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME is set in path.
