PhpStorm 2.0: Take PHP by Storm!
With zero-configuration debugger and support for latest standards, including PHP namespaces and EcmaScript 5, PhpStorm 2.0 is a must-have IDE for PHP developers.
February 14, 2011
Prague, Czech Republic, February 14, 2011 — JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of PhpStorm 2.0, its intelligent code-centric PHP IDE.
When it first appeared, PhpStorm filled a long-standing gap as a smart IDE for PHP development, providing essential tools such as automated refactoring, deep code analysis, on-the-fly error checking, and quick-fixes. Based on feedback from many developers that have tried this break-through IDE, PhpStorm 2.0 focuses on yet more intelligence, better code quality assurance, and support for the latest PHP trends.
“We added PHP namespaces and closures support, which are actively used in today’s PHP development, and greatly improved code-analysis capabilities,” said Alexey Gopachenko, team lead at JetBrains. “In addition, this major release makes PHP debugging just ‘work out of the box’, requiring no configuration at all”.
The key changes in PhpStorm 2.0 include:
- Complete PHP 5.3 support including namespaces and closures
- Zend Debugger support & zero-configuration debugging in all browsers
- Command line tool support including completion for Zend_Tool and Symfony
- Full-fledged editors for SQL queries with editable query results
- Added Mercurial support
- HTML5 and EcmaScript 5 support added
Our customer says:
“I’ve tried just about all the PHP IDEs available in the world today. This is the best IDE I could find. I am extremely impressed by the weekly releases of beta software. I’ll continue to look into JetBrains software as long as I am a developer.”
