Toolbar flickers, has gray shadow, after update to 2016.1.1


Hello, my top toolbar in PhpStorm is flickering, and has a choppy gray shadow, despite ending the program and restarting it.
Has anyone else run into this?  (I am on Mac / Yosemite.)

These are my 'about' details:

PhpStorm 2016.1.1
Build #PS-145.970, built on May 3, 2016

Would it be possible to capture a screenshot/screencast of an issue?

Additionally please check the same behavior in EAP build.

The most recent patch fixed my problem.  I am now on the following:

PhpStorm 2016.1.2
Build #PS-145.1616, built on May 24, 2016
JRE: 1.8.0_76-release-b198 x86_64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o

Sorry I didn't reply earlier-
I had tried capturing the issue with a screencaster, but the toolbar didn't flicker while I had the screencaster up, so I had trouble getting actual evidence of it.  Using the screenshot tool also would temporarily stop the behavior.

At anyrate, whatever you guys did in the most recent patch fixed my troubles.  Thankyou very much, it is a tremendous relief to not see the flickering continuously in the top of the screen :) :) :)

Thanks for the update. New JRE version supplied with a patch must have addressed the issue for you.

Glad this is working fine now =)
