ESM support for webpack configuration

Let’s start with a nice little addition to this release that may be useful to you. From now on, webpack coding assistance will work with ES modules in your webpack.config.js files.


Improvements for Docker

New Services view UI

We’ve reworked Docker’s UI in the Services tool window. The makeover has been implemented for containers, images, networks, and volumes.


Docker Registry V2 support

We’ve added support for Docker Registry HTTP API V2 to use with Docker 1.6+. You can create simple or password-protected Docker V2 registries and perform all of the usual actions like viewing, pushing, and pulling images.


Accessibility improvements

We’ve introduced updates and fixes for WebStorm’s accessibility features to better accommodate the needs of our users.

To facilitate navigation in the Log tab, the screen reader now reads the names and descriptions of the branches’ trees. It provides a voice prompt to use ⌘L to navigate through other Log filters.

The accessibility support for macOS users has been improved. In this EAP build, we’ve resolved the VoiceOver issue that was causing multiple unnecessary repetitions of list elements. Additionally, VoiceOver can now read combo box lists, and we’ve fixed the incorrect positioning of the VoiceOver cursor when working on an external display.

That’s it for today. For the full list of improvements available in WebStorm 2022.1 EAP #5, check out the release notes.
