Type narrowing support for Vue

We continue to make working with Vue 3 better for you. We’ve added initial support for type narrowing, and WebStorm now supports union types and understands v-if/else directives.

Vue initial type narrowing

We plan to roll out more fixes related to type narrowing in the near future. Stay tuned!

Unbundled plugins

We’ve done a bit of housekeeping for WebStorm 2022.2. We’ve looked at what is bundled in WebStorm and what we can remove to clean up the IDE.

We’ve decided to unbundle support for the following technologies, as they weren’t actively used:

Support for these technologies will remain available as standalone plugins. You can install them from our plugin marketplace or via Preferences / Settings | Plugins.

Other notable changes

  • We’ve resolved the issue with the Fix current file action not working on stylelint-order rules (WEB-50588).
  • We’ve fixed the issue with the mismatched CSS max function parameters occurring when there were more than two parameters (WEB-56164).
  • We’ve added the ability to hide dynamic usages from the results presented in the Find Usages popup if you’re using TypeScript. Previously, this worked only for JavaScript (WEB-55613).
