WebStorm 6 EAP build 126.159

This is to announce a new WebStorm 6 EAP biuld 126.159. Let’s quickly drive through the changes in this build:

1. HTML structure view has been reworked, and now it’s much easier to navigate over complex HTML files. More details will follow soon, let me just show a screenshot of HTML5 outline mode:

2. IDE can now grab the latest version of JSHint right from the Web, so you can always stay up to date with all the JSHint features. Just go to Settings -> JavaScript -> JSHint and choose the version you need or continue with the bundled one.

3. We implemented the long-awaited support for Emmet, HTML only for now, but CSS part will catch up soon!

4. JetBrains Chrome Extension is now distributed via Chrome Web Store. This means easier install and updates and less troubles with JavaScript debugging and Live Edit.

5. We’ve renamed Background tasks feature (that compile your TypeScript to JavaScript, LESS to CSS and so on) to File Watchers, which seems to be more appropriate name.

6. Last but not least: bugfixes is what we care about every day! JavaScript, TypeScript, Dart, as well as IntelliJ IDEA platform continuously get more stable and performant. If you feel different, please let us know, this is what our tracker and forums are for! ;-)

That’s all for now, just grab new build and try. And stay tuned, more features and improvements are on their way to you guys!

For those who like the numbers here’s the list of resolved issues.

Patch-updates are available for all platforms.

Develop with pleasure!
