WebStorm 2019.2 Early Preview build #6 is now available!
If you’re unfamiliar with our Early Access Program or if you want to catch up on all the new features, check out the previous EAP blog posts.
The Toolbox App is the easiest way to get the EAP builds and keep both your stable WebStorm version and any EAP versions up to date. Or you can download the EAP builds from our website. You can also get notified right from the IDE when a new EAP build is available: go to Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates and select “Automatically check updates for Early Access Program”.
Important! WebStorm EAP builds are not fully tested and might be unstable.
Here are some of the highlights of WebStorm 2019.2 EAP #6 (build 192.5587.21). For the full list of issues fixed in this update, see the Release Notes.

To help you keep things simple, WebStorm now warns you if you have a boolean expression in your code that has any extra bits that are not actually required (e.g. condition in the
if statement), and offers you a quick-fix (Alt-Enter) to simplify it without changing the logic.
