On the long term, ZendStudio will be migrated into the Eclipse platform. What a great decision. There has been a PHP IDE proposal on eclipse.org where you can also
find the „PHP IDE creation review“ slides.
On page 8, you can find the following timeline:
- March 8, 2006: Creation review
- March 20-23, 2006: EclipseCon
- April, 2006: Finish development stage
- May, 2006: PHP IDE 0.7 release
- July, 2006: Upgrade to WTP 1.5
- September, 2006: PHP IDE 1.0 release
Kudos to Guy Harpaz and Robert Goodman.
