As possibly the only NetBeans users coding in PHP in Singapore, I would like to announce in a somewhat lonely fashion that NetBeans 6.8 has been released. Despite being ridiculed for the past two years [insert laughter] for my unusual support for coding PHP with NetBeans IDE, I can never get used to something other than NetBeans so there’s probably something NetBeans did right after all.
If you’re on NetBeans 6.7, I urge you to upgrade. If you aren’t a NetBeans user, do give NetBeans a chance. It’s (probably) slower and Java-ish but the excellent code completion support more than made up for it. Oh yeah, and it’s free too.
