PHP 5.5 Support

Hi all! After few weeks of inactivity we would like to introduce you some of new features which will be available in NetBeans 8.0. Today we will show you PHP 5.5 support.

Note: All PHP 5.5 features are available in your projects after setting Project Properties -> Sources -> PHP Version to PHP 5.5 value, or after choosing the same value during a PHP Project creation (in New Project Wizard).

Our editor supports all new PHP features such as...


PHP 5.5 Generators

...Finally keyword...

...Array and string literal deferencing...

...Class name resolution...

... and Improved foreach loops.

That's all for today and as usual, please test it and if you find something strange, don't hesitate to file a new issue (component php, subcomponent Editor). Thanks.
