JetBrains Releases Two Full-Featured Development Environments for Productive Development With PHP, HTML, JavaScript and CSS.

PRAGUE, May 28, 2010 - JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing
development tools for developers, expands its line of language-specific IDEs
and announces the general availability of two new products for PHP and Web
development: PhpStorm 1.0 and WebStorm 1.0.


Following the success of JetBrains RubyMine, its first language-specific
IDE for Ruby/Rails, JetBrains chooses PHP, one of the most widely used web
development technologies, as the next area to conquer.

"Java developers using IntelliJ IDEA and also working with PHP have long
asked us to add PHP language support. We released initial PHP support in
IntelliJ IDEA 9.0 with the plan to create a specific IDE later on," said
Maxim Mossienko, project lead at JetBrains. "While we still plan to keep
IntelliJ IDEA as an ultimate IDE for polyglot programming, the IntelliJ
Platform allows us to easily build language-specific development
environments. PhpStorm and WebStorm are the next installment in this line of
lightweight yet powerful IDEs."

JetBrains has often been praised for creating the best HTML, CSS and
JavaScript editors. Inheriting these strengths, WebStorm and PhpStorm add new
remarkable features such as project deployment and synchronization over FTP,
to create a great environment for an easier and more productive web

A key advantage of both WebStorm and PhpStorm is their deep understanding
of code, be it JavaScript, PHP, HTML, or CSS. These IDEs perform a
comprehensive analysis of project code and offer developers best-in-class
code insight, code completion suggestions and project navigation facilities.

    PhpStorm 1.0 also provides these key features:

    - Advanced support for PHP development - including smart code completion,
      inspections, refactorings and quick code navigation.

    - Graphical PHP Debugger - with conditional breakpoints, watches and
      smart step-into.

    - PhpUnit testing frameworks support - with a GUI-based test runner.

Separate personal and commercial licenses are available for WebStorm and
PhpStorm, affordably priced and with significant "introductory" discount
available until September 2010. Each license includes free IDE updates for 1
year after the purchase date, covering even major new releases.
