WebStorm 7 build 130.1167

Today we’re releasing a new EAP build of WebStorm 7. The new build contains a good amount of new features for you to enjoy:

  • Initial support for TypeScript 0.9, including the support for generics;
  • Support for istanbul code coverage engine for JavaScript;
  • Redesigned REST Client UI with support for requests history, import/export, compressed responses and other improvements;

We’ve also redesigned Live Edit, one of the main productivity-enhancing features of WebStorm. To make its behavior more predictable, we’re now enabling it only within a debug session. You can run the JS debugger for every HTML page, and once you do so, Live Edit will take care of automatically updating the contents of the page as you change the .html file.

(Update: This works not just for pure HTML files, but also for many other file types that contain or generate HTML, CSS or JavaScript. You just need to specify the URL of the page in the “JavaScript Debug” run configuration.)

As usual, you can find more information in the release notes. The build is available for download on the EAP page, and will soon be available for patch-based update within the IDE.
