I tried to send this before, but it appears that The List was out of service for some hours/days... Hi, This is meant for Aptana Studio IDE users, specially those that use and love its Aptana PHP plugin: Aptana is making a strategic choice that is all but strategic for their IDE users: they're dropping their PHP plugin. This plugin was what attracted me to Aptana Studio in the first place (it has some unique and unrivaled features that come very handy for those that build and theme websites) and I suspect many other users feel the same. Their new 2.0 Studio version already tossed out support for Aptana PHP and Aptana is recommending instead the use of PDT (from Eclipse), which is pretty inneficient in comparison. This move attracted a fair amount of criticism (expressed already in 174 comments) but Aptana is saying that "it is best not to make assumptions about how the user base as a whole feels based on the comments of a vocal subset" (comment 173), therefore implying that the opinions expressed on the discussion thread about this issue are not representative. If you use Aptana Studio and love the unique features of this IDE as I do, I would suggest this is the time to say something about it. You'll find the discussion thread here: https://aptanastudio.tenderapp.com/discussions/questions/75-aptana-no-longer-has-php Thanks, Roberto P.S.: As I suspect that this might be slightly off-topic, I ask you to please not answer to this message but instead to express your opinions on the URL indicated above. UPDATE: Meanwhile, the thread has now 204 comments and Aptana released Studio 2.0.2 with the possibility of installing Aptana PHP plugin again onto it. Nevertheless, this doesn't mean any alteration on their roadmap concerning PHP support as clearly stated on post 194, on that thread, where was announced the new release: "Again we don't have allocated resource to do any full-blown testing to ensure no runtime breakage in the integration, and PHP backward compatibility is not one of the requirements for future architecture design, but hopefully this makes it easier for people who want to continue using Aptana PHP on 2.0 at the moment until a better alternative arises."
