Mayflower is proud to announce the release of the open source tool PHP_CodeBrowser in the current version 0.1.0-alpha.
What is PHP_CodeBrowser
PHP_CodeBrowser is a tool mainly intended to be used in conjunction with CruiseControl.
It provides a code browser for PHP files with syntax highlighting and colored error-sections
found by quality assurance tools like PHPUnit or PHP_CodeSniffer.
The visualisation of errors, warnings or notices, found by above mentioned kind of tools,
is the real power of PHP_CodeBrowser.
You may also use PHP_CodeBrowser as a stand alone version, but therefore you would need previous generated XML error files.
Integration in phpUnderControl
PHP_CodeBrowser comes along with syntax highlighting, colored error sections and a smart clickable error overview.
Supported are XML report files generated from following supported quality assurance tools:
Colored error sections
Why should you use it
Because it’s cool, and it helps strongly getting an complete overview over your code quality in single files.
Clickable error list overview

The PHP 5.3 BBQ Release Party in Munich, that took place on Friday the 17th of July 2009 at the Waldwirtschaft has been a complete success.
About 100 PHP enthusiasts joined this event and were celebrating and used this event for further communications or exchanging experiences.
The sunny weather from the afternoon unfortunatelly turned into to a small hurricane at night, but the drenches could not ruin the mood – the BBQ just moved to the nearby
tent and everybody enjoyed their meal, a buffet with salad, grilled meat, three barrels of beer and two awesome suckling pigs.
A small quiz with questions around the new php version were greatly appreciated, participants were awarded with a special PHP 5.3 Release BBQ T-shirt.
Special regards again to the sponsors Mayflower, Microsoft, Swoodoo und Zend, for making this event possible and to the supporters and several helpers of course, too.
We like to invite you to the PHP 5.3 release party on Friday, the 17th of July in Munich.
The release party offers a chance to talk to other PHP enthusiasts and enjoy that PHP is alive and kicking. If you just can’t resist a decent barbecue together with some beer and other drinks you are also welcomed.
The happening will take place at the Waldwirtschaft beer garden irrespective of the weather.
We will meet at 19:00 o’clock – open end.
The location is famous for its huge beer garden (2,500 available seats, a children’s playground) and its typical Bavarian but also international food. On sunny weather you may even enjoy live-music and listen to the sounds of Jazz, Blues, Swing or Dixi.
Catering will be provided and as a special delicacy you may enjoy a suckling pig!
