We're releasing version 1.75 of PHP Tools for Visual Studio! This September release improves the editor experience, introduces compatibility with PHP 8.3, adds fast caching of
vendor folder, adds more inline code suggestions, and improves stability and overall performance.
Adding support for PHP 8.3 syntax features including:
The editor recognizes
register_primitive_type_handler() calls, and allows completion for specified scalar types.
The editor is completing and navigating to files #402.
Newly, when typing a new class, the class name is suggested based on the file name. The suggestion takes advantage of the inline compose lenses, so it's non disruptive; accepted with
In combination with IntelliPHP, which is a part of PHP Tools for Visual Studio 2022, there are even more code suggestions!
The editor is caching
composer.lock and the corresponding vendor folder. This significantly improves opening solutions based on Composer packages, and drops the RAM usage to the bare minimum.
Newly, attributes above classes will have inlay hints with parameter names (#383), if enabled.
