I've made PHP and PhpStorm update a couple of weeks ago and since then automatic watches in Debug panel are gone. Now I have to add global variables, like $_POST and local scope variables manually, which is annoying.
I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 with PHP 5.5.9, xdebug 2.2.3, PhpStorm 7.1.2.
Here is xdebug.conf:
PhpStrom settings are ok to my mind. Correct version of PHP is chosen, also xdebug is set as debugger.
Maybe I'm missing something crucial that was introduced in recent versions?
