Zend Studio 10 - A Fresh Goody Bag of New Features for PHP Development

Customer Quote

   My first impression of Studio 10 is good! Eclipse itself seems more stable, more responsive and less CPU hungry, and the content assist seems to have a better response time. And having mobile application development in the same IDE as the backend work is great!   

Thijs LensselinkPHP Developer, www.mobiletulip.com

   Zend Studio 10 is fully integrated with Git, PHPUnit and Zend Framework 2, which gives me one convenient place for my coding practices. When using ZF2, it's invaluable thanks to its seamless integration.    

Ore LandauPHP Developer, SangtamTech

   I'm enjoying every minute I'm working using Zend Studio 10. Zend Studio 9 was really good, but version 10 is an almost telepathic assistant, sharp and quick -- I'm delighted. Keep up the good work on this brilliant piece of software.    

Daniil KalninSenior Web Developer, www.77agency.com

   I am really excited about how easy it is to make a ZF2 project, create modules, and get template files that I can just edit instead of having to write from scratch.
