NuSphere PhpED - New Features

Nusphere PhpED 20.0

PhpED version 5.9.5 is a large intermediate release built on top of version 5.9. The goal of PhpED 5.9.5 release is to enhance PHP IDE with the "hot" features requested by PHP Developers and let them take full advantage of the support of PHP 5.3 features provided in the major release of PhpED 5.9. It also further improves the support for PHP Editor's Web 2.0 stack with the features like Auto Close HTML Tags and Auto Add HTML attribute values.
