phpStorm 5 is a joke?

I recently bought this product as I thought it'd be better than Eclipse etc. It is, but more and more I see this project is a joke, just like Firefox, new general release every few months. When updating to 5.0 (which obviously no one tested before release) this I what I found out:

- deleting of directories does sometimes simply not work, I have to rename it and then delete it (I use SVN, which support is pretty bad and I don't even use 1.7 yet)

- in 5.x when I do SVN UPDATE files get updated yet IDE opens an OLD version, are you serious?! I have to manualy click some refresh button, this worked fine in 4.x

- many times when I do SVN UPDATE the revision number is messed up, in local .svn/entries there is just some revision number way higher than actual current release and I have to then manualy change this for everything to work again

- 5.x does not recognise new files being added in Finder (I again have to click refresh)

- what is with that info window after SVN UPDATE, how do I stop that windows to show me some info I don't need every single time?

- bug: you cannot rename files when you just change the case (renaming menu.php to Menu.php), file will just dissapear

- sometimes when I open a project it just doesn't recognise this project being connected to SVN, I simply cannot update/commit

- seriously, 5.0 version and still no proper or at least basic project management/list? The ONLY way to access projects is with File -> Recent. Seriously? Does anyone look at issue tracker, where a request for this exists for 2 YEARS?!

Guys, you are having a great product, stop with new features, stop throwing everything in there, stop releasing new major version every few months, take a break, fix and stabilise what you currently have and then continue with new features. Otherwise this product will become crap sooner or later, which would be a shame.

And yes, I know I write in perhaps an arrogant way, but this tool I PAID for just took few hours of work away from me right now because there is obviously no testing done before release. Bravo and thank you, really.

Hello Marko,

I'll answer about Subversion plugin.

1) "deleting of directories does sometimes simply not work, I have to rename it and then delete it (I use SVN, which support is pretty bad and I don't even use 1.7 yet)"
Please describe the details, could you please create the issue? I didn't see reports like this before.
2) "many times when I do SVN UPDATE the revision number is messed up, in local .svn/entries there is just some revision number way higher than actual current release and I have to then manualy change this for everything to work again" - is it like described here http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-88764 ?
3) what is with that info window after SVN UPDATE, how do I stop that windows to show me some info I don't need every single time?
I'm not sure we had had request to remove it.
4) bug: you cannot rename files when you just change the case (renaming menu.php to Menu.php), file will just dissapear

5) sometimes when I open a project it just doesn't recognise this project being connected to SVN, I simply cannot update/commit
Could you please report detailed issue

Hello Irina,
thanks for fast replies (I was colelcting these issues to post at once). I will look at these things during weekend and try to write a way to reproduce things.

As for point 2), yes, this is the same issue. This never ever happened in any other IDE for years.

Marko
