  1. Congrats on the release!

  2. Steve says:

    Been using with EAP for the past 2 months and all I can say is Awesome. Looking forward for more tools. Maybe some integrated test runner automation in the near future?

  3. Conor Griffin says:

    Great, just one problem

  4. Very cool!

    Any idea on when we can expect this in Intellij?

  5. Paul Annekov says:

    When the Dart plugin version will be updated for IntelliJ IDEA? It has current version of 135.765.
    WebStorm has plugin version of 139.164.

  7. Patrice says:

    Is the debugger supporting React JS as well ?
    For instance, when I set a breakpoint on a JS file with the /** @jsx React.DOM */ header, the breakpoint is never triggered.

  8. Grattacazzo says:

    Is this included in my phpstorm 8 license?

    • Ekaterina Prigara says:

      Most of the features are already available in PhpStorm 8 (.0.1) and then all the new features will land in PhpStorm 8.0.2. Please note that some features are available as free plugins.

    How do you get the Gulp tool window to appear?

    • Ekaterina Prigara says:

      You can open to it with the menu View | Tool windows | Gulp.

      • David Martin says:

        When I go to View | Tool Windows I see no option for Gulp. I do however see “Run Gulp Task” under Tools. In the EAP it seemed I had to use the context menu on the gulpfile.js – External Tool -> Gulp. Only then would the option appear under View | Tool Windows. That no longer works for me. In case it matters, I am running the Mac version.

        Before posting this, I decided to try one more time because I am seeing it work with other projects. On a hunch I relaunched WebStorm – this time the option appeared. Not sure if this is normal behavior (doubt it), but hopefully others who may have the same experience will find this helpful.

        • Ekaterina Prigara says:

          The option is available only if you have gulpfile.js in your project. Probably WebStorm for some reasons were not able to detect it. Please let us know if you would reproduce the problem once again. Would be great if you report the issue at http://youtrack.jetbrains.com Thanks!

    • Or better yet, how do you get the arrow keys to work in the gulp window once it’s running?

      • Ekaterina Prigara says:

        What do you mean by that? You can navigate through the task list with up/down keys and start tasks by hitting Enter.

  10. Valentin says:

    Guy you deserve a slicker logo / icon. Your software rocks!
    Let me know how can I contribute.


  11. Adam Schnaare says:

    Would love to see some help on how to use cordova/phonegap with this release. I recently upgraded, and sadly have no documentation/walk-throughs on how to utilize it with webstorm.
