WebStorm 2018.2.5 is now available

WebStorm 2018.2.5 is now available! Update to it using Toolbox App or from the IDE. You can also download WebStorm 2018.2.5 from our website.

This update fixes a performance problem with the TypeScript projects caused by the links to the files outside the project (WEB-34669).

From the IntelliJ platform, there are fixes related to logging into the GitHub account (IDEA-198120), the Find in path dialog (IDEA-198588;  the problem still persists on Windows 7, we are currently working on it; as a workaround on Linux with Gnome, we have enabled the old layout for this dialog, the usual UI will be back in WebStorm 2018.3) and the input of the accented characters in popups.

Please also see the Release notes for this update.

    It seems that the “Find in Path” window also changed its layout on this version. As user apahne wrote (https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-198588) “The UI has changed (2018.2.5, Ubuntu Gnome), the dialog is now tabbed. There are separate tabs for “Options” and “Preview” It was much more usable when it was not tabbed.”

    I agree with that, it was better before. At least you didn’t remove the Preview pane, that is incredibly useful to edit multiple files without opening them.

    There’s a weird bug in the new Webstorm. When I use Shift+Shift to bring up the search box, I can’t seem to open files by pressing Enter on them. I have to click on the file to open it.
