PhpStorm 6 EAP build 124.373

Alexey Gopachenko

One more EAP for these holidays – many fixes and some features:

  • PHP type inference for “fluent interface” call chains (@return $this / @return static) will infere the proper type – which is known only at at point of reference. Note that one important case is still not supported – assigning result of such a call returning $this/static to variable
  • New PHP refactoring: move class to another namespace
  • REST Client plugin included
  • More details on PHP changes available in tracker

We are working on improved type inference, composer support and framework integration, although features will take some time to show up.

As usual, bear in mind that you are getting a snapshot of work in progress and product will undergo series of technical and cosmetic changes.

Download PhpStorm 6.0 EAP for your platform from project EAP page. Patch-update is also available.

Develop with pleasure!

    What happened to the new splash screen ? 🙁

      I think the splash screen with the Mayan symbol only marked the “Mayan Apocalypse”, and since we’re still here, the symbol was removed. 🙂

    Hmm, no update directly in PHPStorm anymore? Do I need to download the full installer and run it manually on Win8 x64?

    Can’t find the update button:

      Incremental update (patch) is only available for consequent builds. This is not applicable to you since you do not have previous build: 123.66 -> 124.237 -> 124.295 -> 124.373. Therefore full install is your only option.

    Will there be support for CakePHP?

    • Manuel St says:

      January 10, 2013

      I sincerely hope that popular frameworks will get the top priority, too. And the two top-notch-products there would be Symfony2 and ZF2. Following then Flow3, CakePHP and CodeIgniter
