This plugin is a Static Code Analysis tool for PHP (aka inspections in JetBrains products).

It covers:
- architecture related issues
- weak types control and possible code construct simplifications
- performance issues
- non-optimal, duplicate and suspicious "if" conditions
- validation of magic methods usage
- regular expressions
- validation of exception handling workflow
- compatibility issues
- variety of time-consuming bugs
- PhpUnit API usage
- security issues

Some of inspections are expecting conditional statements (e.g. "if") to use group statement for wrapping body expressions. If this requirement is met then additional inspections are applied to the source code.

For Mac shortcuts, see this reference card. Windows/Linux ones are:
Alt + Shift + I to inspect current file with current profile
Ctrl + Alt + Shift + I to run inspection by name
Ctrl + Shift + F4 to close results of inspection.

On some projects CPU and therefore battery usage could be intensive, so it should be taken into account when traveling with a laptop.

Note: we are sending anonymous crash-reports and installation statistics to Google Analytics. You are welcome to review the implementation.

- Worked out crash-reports for April

- Foreach source to iterate over: resolved a false-positive (preceding is_* check of an assignment)

- PhpUnit: bugs and best practices: resolved false-positives (multiple cases)
- Return type hint can be used: resolved false-positives (void return type)
- Strings normalization: resolved a false-positive (ucwords)
- Suspicious loop: resolved false positives (*= and /= operators)

- PhpUnit: bugs and best practices: new patterns
- Type casting can be used: introduced settings
