    Thumbs up Anyone tried out the lastest version of PHPEdit lately?

    I downloaded it today and was pretty impressed with how far along its come. Its not quite as slick and shiney as Eclipse is with Java or VS.NET is with C# but its pretty darn close.

    I tried out Zend Studio to see what thats like these days as well and wasn't quite so impressed. The overall interface looks pretty horrid (Java Swing *spit*) and its slower than warm muck. Has some nice debugging features but nothing much beyond the PHPEdit debugger....

    Funny how the Eclipse authors can come up with a truly slick Java app yet "The PHP People" can't....

    The problem is that VS.NET was written in C#, Eclipse was written in Java, IDEs written in their supported language so naturally they will be slick and have very nice features. How do you propose we write a PHP IDE in PHP?

    Maybe this is something for firepages to get stuck into, he's the PHP-GTK guru around here

    Uhhhm VS.NET wasn't written in C#, I think you're thinking of SharpDevelop.

    I knew SharpDevelop was but I heard that VS.NET was too. I've just spent like 10 minutes looking for where I saw that but no luck yet. I'll post bck when I find it

    Hmmm I very much doubt Visual Studio was written in C# as it has to handle VS.NET and C++ as well as C#. Plus I doubt MS would ditch the development of previous versions of Visual Studio just to look cool with their new language.

    Still, its not about the language anyway. The issue's with a PHP IDE is that a loosely-typed language doesn't usually adapt very well to IDE envirnments. I think PHPEd has done pretty well with that. Once the remaining bugs have been worked out it'll be great.

    I believe that most of VS.NET IDE is an visually tweaked Visual J++. I used VJ++ in a class once, and all the dialogs and toolbars and panels of VS.NET are layed out the same, they just have the fancy mouse-overs now.
