WebStorm 2.0 Supports Latest Standards of the World Wide Web

With ECMAScript5 and HTML5 support, the WebStorm IDE becomes a tool every webmaster should have in their toolkit!

Prague, Czech Republic, February 24, 2011 — JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of WebStorm 2.0, an intelligent code-centric Web IDE.

WebStorm offers best-in-class JavaScript/HTML editor, which deeply understands your code and is able to suggest javascript-specific code optimizations, quick-fixes and refactorings. It also provides Zen-coding support and DOM-based autocompletion for HTML/CSS.

"We work to provide developers with intelligent tools to stay on top of the Web's fast-evolving standards. In this release we focused on adding support for the latest JavaScript specification — ECMAScript 5, HTML 5, LESS and SASS extensions for CSS," said Maxim Mossienko, project lead at JetBrains. "We also continue to improve the environment itself, redesigning the UI and making it easier to work with issue trackers and version control systems right from the IDE."

The key changes in WebStorm 2.0 include:

  • Support for ECMAScript 5: "use strict"
  • JavaScript libraries organizer to provide sophisticated JS code-completion
  • Leaner CSS (LESS) and SASS/SCSS extensions for CSS
  • Better Git integration, added Mercurial support
  • Relax NG for XML

Our customer says:
