PhpStorm & WebStorm 4.0 EAP 117.65

Alexey Gopachenko

The time frame for version 4.0 development is closing so we almost finished introducing new features and focused on bugs, performance and usability.

This week’s EAP brings you fixes and improvements in all areas, with following changes most notable:

  • PHP Completion for simple cases was improved – for class declarations, try/catch clauses, etc.
  • JavaScript got support for Requirejs and ‘Go to declaration’ on CommonJS’s AMD format
  • Performance problems introduced with recent PHP 5.4 features were fixed

More details available in build changelog and platform changelog

Please, do not use twitter or blog comments for bug reports, file them to tracker.

Download PhpStorm & WebStorm for your platform from project EAP page.
Patch-update is NOT available.

Develop with pleasure!

    I run it and close, and run again. I can’t belive how fast it launches now. I hope nothing is broken in my installation and it’s just new performance of IDE.

    Since this new release not all WARNINGS are shown inside the editor, so e.g. the warning for “unused local variable” is only displayed in the side-bar to the right, but the variable is not underlined or so. I have a lot of ASSERTS error, which I already submitted to jetbrains.

    Opening the IDE is not faster for me (using an SSD, so it was always fast).

    But since autocompletion for JavaScript in combination with “this.” is completely broken (in the last EAP also, btw) the current version is not very useful right now (ticket: 🙁

      Ok, already fixed. That was fast, nice work!

      Just waiting for the next release (or EAP?) now…

    Already have 3.0.3 and trying to install 4.0
    First problem when I try to import settings from older version:
    “C:\Program Files (86)\JetBrains\PhpStorm 3.0.3 does not appear to be PhpStorm config folder or installation home”
    Which is not true. Folder and PhpStorm 3.0.3 installation is there.

    So I cannot import settings from 3.0.3?

      Same problem for me with the v4.0.1 – not recognizing my previous setting. Event when I point the config import to that directory.

      Help! Thanks!

      • Alexey Gopachenko says:

        File|Export Settings
        File|Import Settings

        Are always available

        • Marco says:

          April 24, 2012

          Thanks! I’ve figured it out. I pointed the initial import to:

          and in there to the .webide1 folder (although I was running v3.0.3). Then everything was working as expected.

          • Marco says:

            Sorry, the path seems to get filtered out:
            [ SYSTEM DRIVE ]\Users\[ USER ACCOUNT NAME ]

            This worked for me.

            Thanks Marco!

            Thank you Marco. \Users\webide10 worked for me also.

      Same for me, 3.0.3 -> 4.0.1,
      “C:\Program Files (86)\JetBrains\PhpStorm\ does not appear to be PhpStorm config folder or installation home”

      Plus when clicking [.] button in the input it shows NOT the C:\Program Files (86)\JetBrains\PhpStorm\, but \Users\, maybe it looks for config there too.
