Updating from Zend Studio 10.x

  • To update add two new update sites in Help -> Install New Software -> Available Update Sites:

    and select Help -> Check for updates.

  • Since Zend Studio 10.5 release we provide Mac OS X 64-bit packages only. This means there will be no updates available for 32-bit Zend Studio on OS X. A new installation of 64-bit Zend Studio is required. Existing workspaces can be used with new 64-bit installation. 64-bit installations (Zend Studio 10.5 and later) can be upgraded as usual.

Known Issues

  • Z-Ray may not render correctly inside Zend Studio on Windows. A workaround can be applied in one of the following alternative ways:

    • Modify Zend Server configuration to include the "X-UA-Compatible: IE=edge" HTTP header in the response. If Zend Server is running on Apache HTTP Server then:
      • Add the following line in the httpd.conf file:

        Header add X-UA-Compatible "IE=edge"
      • Restart the Apache HTTP Server.

      • Reopen the web browser inside Zend Studio.

    • Modify the application to include "X-UA-Compatible: IE=edge" HTTP header in the response:
      • Add the following line in a suitable place in your PHP code:

        header("X-UA-Compatible: IE=edge");
      • Reopen the web browser inside Zend Studio.

    In future version of Zend Server, Z-Ray will automatically add the "X-UA-Compatible: IE=edge" HTTP header in the response, so the above workaround will not be required.

  • ZendDebugger does not support thread-safe mode.

  • Debug session is not started for both debugging an application and debug mode enabled against OpenShift target with zend-6.1 cartridge.

  • Zend Studio Crashes with Segmentation Fault in KDE 4.11, see

  • Zend Studio menus do not show or appear only partially in the menu bar of Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04. The issue is caused by Ubuntu's bug See

  • Using Zend Studio's built-in PHP 5.5 binaries with Xdebug may be problematic on Windows and OS X.

  • To display class inheritance charts in the documentation generated by PHPDocumentor installation of Graphviz is required. Due to compatibility issues, please install
