PhpStorm 2016.2 is released

My favorite IDE, PhpStorm, just released their second release of this year and it includes a lot of great new features. Some of the highlights include:

Better PHP Language Support: Improved type inference, strict type inspection for PHP 7, better parsing of PHP 7 and PHP 7.1, and improved getter and setter generation for PHP 7 (and higher).

New Editing Experience: Dynamic live template for smart completion of function parameters; values of class constants shown in completion lists; possibility to filter out static methods from completion list; smart type code completion; and various @throws improvements.

Code Quality Analysis: Reworked Unused imports inspection for unused namespaces, functions, and constants; Return type inspection; and Dynamic call to static method inspection.

Frameworks, Tools, and more: Template projects, better Joomla! support, and Xdebug On Demand for CLI PHP Scripts.
