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.

    • Graphviz version 2.30.1 on Mountain Lion
    • Graphviz version 2.28.0 on Windows and other Mac OS X distributions


  • Running mobile project as Web Mobile application (or using 'Preview Mode' of mobile drag & drop editor) on Windows requires Internet Explorer 'Access data sources across domains' option enabled:

  • Due to Zend's contribution of PHP Code Formatter to opensource Eclipse PDT project the namespace of custom formatter preferences has changed and settings exported from/created with Zend Studio 10.0.1 will not work out of the box in Zend Studio >= 10.1.0.


    • Export Formatter Profile using Studio 10.0.1 and replace all occurrences of com.zend by org.eclipse in the exported XML file before importing it into Zend Studio >= 10.1.0.
