WOW! It’s a great IDE man! http://netbeans.dzone.com/articles/netbeans-ide-65-beta-offers-bu
Thanks to Lioyd Dunn to develop such a great plug-in for NetBeans IDE.
Web developers increasingly tackle large-scale projects that use PHP together with MySQL, they stand to benefit from an IDE that can efficiently manage their growing code base. Fortunately, the newly released NetBeans IDE 6.5 Beta arrives tailor-made to help PHP developers with their particular coding requirements. (Watch the screencast here.)
With the NetBeans IDE 6.5 Beta, web developers can now enjoy a robust PHP editing environment that includes all the standard features NetBeans users enjoy, such as: code completion, syntax highlighting, marking of occurrences, refactoring, code templates, pop-up documentation, easy code navigation, editor warnings, a task list, as well as a debugger.
Because PHP projects typically connect to MySQL databases, NetBeans engineers have also made a concerted effort to cater to this configuration. Plus, PHP developers wary of the hefty download of a full-featured IDE will be pleased to discover that the NetBeans IDE 6.5 Beta is available as a PHP-only distribution that weighs in at a tight 20MB.
