PhpStorm for Mac update brings Support for Apple M1 chip

The first bug-fix update for PhpStorm 2020.3 is now available

JetBrains has released a a bug-fix update for PhpStorm. In addition the company have also released PhpStorm for Macs with the new Apple M1 chip, which means that PhpStorm now runs natively on Apple Silicon.

PhpStorm now has support for @phpstan- prefixed PHPDoc tags and supports Vue.extend() construction. Nuxt.js now supports component auto-import with @nuxt/components, while Cucumber.js now has support for versions 6.0.0+.

The update also brings a whole host of fixes.

  • Fixed: PhpStorm fails to find files, methods, variables (broken index after opening multiple projects)
  • Fixed: PhpStorm doesn’t send any command to older Xdebug versions (2.2.5, 2.3.2)
  • Fixed: Sending detach to Xdebug older than 2.9.4 turns debugging off in php-fpm, the server has to be restarted to get it back on
  • Fixed: Tabs created by Remote Host Browser are being pinned affecting the tabs order
  • Fixed: Cannot parse PHPUnit version because of Xdebug warning output
  • Fixed: Cucumber.js 5 step definitions can’t be matched when using custom parameter types
  • Fixed: Pull Requests comments are duplicated in all files
  • Fixed: Compound Run Configuration .run.xml files are duplicated many times when stored as project file
  • Fixed: Tool windows in “Empty state” are not closed with shortcut
  • Fixed: ESLint report file paths are not clickable

Developers can update to PhpStorm 2020.3.1 using the Toolbox App or right from inside the IDE. You can also download PhpStorm 2020.3.1 from the website. To use it, you need to download a separate installer for PhpStorm for Apple Silicon here or in the Toolbox App (under the Apple M1 section). It should be noted that the previously installed PhpStorm version running via Rosetta 2 will not update itself to a native build – you have to install a new native version.

The full list of changes is available in the release notes and developers can use the tracker to report any issues they discover.
