When it first appeared, PhpStorm filled a long-standing gap as a smart
IDE for PHP development, providing essential tools such as automated
refactoring, deep code analysis, on-the-fly error checking, and quick-fixes.
Based on feedback from many developers that have tried this break-through
IDE, PhpStorm 2.0 focuses on yet more intelligence, better code quality
assurance, and support for the latest PHP trends.

"We added PHP namespaces and closures support, which are actively used in
today's PHP development, and greatly improved code-analysis capabilities,"
said Alexey Gopachenko, team lead at JetBrains. "In addition, this major
release makes PHP debugging just 'work out of the box,' requiring no
configuration at all."

The key changes in PhpStorm 2.0 include:

    - Complete PHP 5.3 support including namespaces and closures
    - Zend Debugger support & zero-configuration debugging in all browsers
    - Command line tool support including completion for Zend_Tool and
    - Full-fledged editors for SQL queries with editable query results
    - Added Mercurial support
    - HTML5 and EcmaScript 5 support added

Our customer says:

"I've tried just about all the PHP IDEs available in the world today.
This is the best IDE I could find. I am extremely impressed by the weekly
releases of beta software. I'll continue to look into JetBrains software as
long as I am a developer."
