Danne Lundqvist's Blog:
Two weeks with Zend Studio for Eclipse

New on the DotVoid blog Danne Lundqvist has posted about the experience of two weeks with the Zend Studio for Eclipse software as a primary editor.

After more than ten years with Emacs and terminal flipping as my primary development environment, whether for C, PHP, WSDL, HTML/CSS or javascript, I decided to try (I mean really really try) an IDE for a while. As PHP is my main focus these days I have been looking towards Zend Studio for Eclipse. I figured Eclipse with it's maturity must work well enough on linux.

Danne talks about the transition from editor to IDE (shortcuts? features? where is everything?) including importing a project in from a subversion repository. He had a few issues as he started out - technical glitches, problems with subversion integration and encoding support - but lots of other good things too (phpDocumentor support, code folding, inline errors/warnings).
