An Oracle blog about NetBeans for PHP

NetBeans IDE 7.1 Beta Available for Download

Although the main theme for NetBeans 7.1 is the support for JavaFX 2.0, we have worked hard on PHP improvements as well. NetBeans 7.1 brings better debugger support, support for PHPUnit test groups, Smarty and many other improvements. You can download the build from NetBeans site

You can help us to test the build. Just try it and if you find an issue / error, please report it.  Thanks for your help.

    @Guest: I don't have such problem. On the other hand it can exist, because I'm sure that our setups are not the same. Could you please enter new issue and attach the ide snapshot? It will probably help to the team fix the problem. Thanks.

    It got much much worse in terms of speed.

    @Dave: A few people have the same feeling. But I need something what I can measure. What exactly is slower? Is there a specific action then I could measure?

    Also could you try the latest daily build, whether is better or not. I know about one fix, that should improve performance of project view, which is not in beta. We need to find out the reason of the slownest.

    If you know an action that is slower then before, could you send me profile snapshot of such action? You can make it through the Profile The IDE icon in main toolbar. Thanks for your help.

    I have been experimenting the whole day today and - you actually nailed it - project view lags have been bugging me most! Will try latest build, thank you!
