WebStorm 2019.3 Early Preview build #9 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/Settings | 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 2019.3 EAP #9 (build 193.5096.13). For the full list of issues fixed in this update, see the Release Notes.
Support for the Upcoming Yarn 2 Release
A new major Yarn version is coming later this year with the Plug’n’Play feature – a completely new installation strategy for project dependencies.
In the past month, we’ve worked together with the Yarn team and put a lot of effort into making sure that all WebStorm key features work fine when using Yarn 2.
The second thing we did was to make sure that all integrated tools like linters and test runners can still be used when installed using Yarn 2.
