We are glad to announce the start of the Early Access Program for WebStorm 2017.2!
The first WebStorm 2017.2 EAP is now available for download. It brings lots of improvements and promises even more new features in the next EAP builds. The WebStorm 2017.2 release is planned for late July. Stay tuned!
If you’re not yet familiar with our Early Access Programs, here are some details:
- Every week we publish a fresh build for the upcoming version of WebStorm.
- EAP builds provide access to the newest features we’re currently developing.
- EAP builds are free but expire 30 days after they’re built.
- You can install a EAP build side-by-side with a stable WebStorm version.
