"The release of PDT 1.0 is great news as it will allow the estimated 4.5 million PHP developers to begin using Eclipse-based tools and greatly expand the entire Eclipse community," said Mike Milinkovich (pictured), general director of the Eclipse organization, as The Eclipse Foundation this week announced the availability of the 1.0 release of the Eclipse PHP Development Tools (PDT) project.
“We have received great responses to PDT from PHP developers,” explains Yossi Leon, Eclipse PDT project leader and Product Manager for Zend Studio at Zend Technologies. “To date we have had over 300,000 downloads of PDT and the feedback has been very positive.”
Key features in PDT 1.0 include:
“PDT has evolved to a mature and high-quality Eclipse toolset for PHP developers,” says Peter MacIntyre, principal at Paladin Business Solutions in Charlottetown, PE in Canada. “Its strength as a framework for creating PHP systems and applications is certainly evident, and it is exciting to think of the commercial products that can now be delivered leveraging the PDT framework.”
“We like features like code expansion, linked references to libraries, manuals and code,” say Jeroen Serpieters and Michelangelo van Dam, consultants for Ausy Belgium, a system integrator in Brussels, Belgium. “PDT gives us the opportunity to deliver quality services in less time. The fact that this is delivered by an open source project with strong community backing makes adoption of PDT a no-brainer for us.”
PDT 1.0 is available for download at http://download.eclipse.org/tools/pdt/downloads/.
