This week I am going to write about editor improvements, which are available in the development builds. I hope that I will have time to introduce a new feature every day. The feature freeze for NetBeans 7.0 Milestone 1 was already reached and these improvements will be also available in this M1. If you will try the development builds and run into a problem, enter new issue into Issuezilla (category php, subcomponent editor).
The first new feature, which I want to introduce is parameter info. When you use a function and you don't remember the parameters you can use CTLR+P shortcut to show the parameters in a small popup window as it is displayed on the picture.
As you can see the parameter is bold that corresponds to the cursor position.
Also if a function has parameters with a default value, then the default value is displayed for the parameter.
