    When will full HTML5 support be added? At the moment, things like the data-* attributes, a lot of the Javascript APIs and some CSS3 properties like rgba color values, generate warnings and don’t have any auto-complete.

    @Rowno – Have you set the doctype to HTML5 / Created a HTML5 document? Had the same problem until I realized that I was in a XHTML document…

    Change the doctype to HTML and Presto!

    Great work by Jetbrains!

    How can I edit xml documents associated with relaxng schema.

    Maybe there should be a setting that can map namespaces or root element name and schema files.
    (I’m glad if nvdl support)

    But, I can not find it.

    @Joacim Boive In the project I’m working on the HTML is split across multiple files so this isn’t really possible and in another project where I did set the HTML5 doctype, HTML5 APIs like FormData, File and the new AJAX properties are validated as unresolved and aren’t available in auto-complete either.

    You can configure “namespace -> schema file” mapping in IDE Settings | Resources | Configure External Resources

    I read everywhere that PhpStorm 2.x has a Redmine integration but can’t figure it out how to enable it. Could anyone point me in the right direction.
