What’s New in Zend Studio 7

Many important features were introduced in Zend Studio 7. Some of the highlights:

Integrated Code Tracing Viewer

Troubleshooting application issues that occur in the production environment is often time-consuming and frustrating. It required you to recreate the production environment and reproduce the problem before you can start debugging. The new Code Tracing viewer enables you to open trace files captured by Zend Server in production and analyze code execution at the time the problem occurred, thereby accelerating the root cause analysis process.

Task-focused Programming with Mylyn Integration

As a developer, you are probably dealing with dozens of tasks daily. Zend Studio helps you reduce information overload and ensures nothing falls between the cracks. Leveraging the well-known Eclipse Mylyn project, Zend Studio now identifies information, such as source files, classes and functions, relevant to each task. Once you activate a task to work on from the tasks list now incorporated into Zend Studio, all related elements are automatically opened and arranged in the Zend Studio user interface. This puts the information you need at your fingertips and improves productivity by reducing searching, scrolling, and navigation.

Tasks may be personal or shared among your team members. Zend Studio can display and update tasks from various task repositories, such as Bugzilla, Trac, and JIRA.

Phar Integration

Phar (short for “PHP Archive”) is an archive extension that enables you to group several files into a single file for easy distribution and installation of complete PHP applications. With Zend Studio you can now import to phar, export to phar and add phar to your project.

   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!

   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.

   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.
