PhpStorm 2023.1 EAP #2
In this build, you’ll find performance and quality-of-life improvements.
The EAP allows you to try new features from the upcoming PhpStorm version, 2023.1. EAP builds are free to use and you can install them side by side with a stable version of PhpStorm. If something doesn’t work correctly, you can quickly switch back to the previous version without interfering with your workflow.
Scanning files to index in smart mode
We’ve improved the IDE startup experience by performing the Scanning files to index… process in smart mode, which makes the startup process much quicker.
When opening a project, PhpStorm will use the project’s existing caches from the previous session and look for any new files to index. If no changes are found after scanning, the IDE will be ready to work.
A new IDE suggestion to reconfigure Windows Defender settings for better performance
Windows Defender’s Real-Time Protection checks can significantly decrease IDE speed. To avoid this, PhpStorm will suggest adding certain folders to Defender’s list of exclusions.
The notification provides the option to either reconfigure these settings automatically or first check the Defender configuration instructions and do it manually.

The upcoming release will also have descriptions of file modes. You won’t have to remember what `r+`, `a`, `w`, etc. all mean!
