Considering Rewrite

Since version 0.7.7, which was written several years ago in Delphi, there have been thousands of downloads of the software. Perhaps there is significant demand for a good, integrated PHP development environment.

Considering its popularity then, I am considering rewriting the software from scratch in the .NET framework. I will use the existing images, and the built in classes (instead of writing things like an xml parser!) and any other resources that took a considerable amount of time to create. Alongside PowerSong, these two projects will be my main focus for the forseeable future. If you are interested in helping out, drop me a line at

Software to be usable by 0.8!

Development continues on the PHP Development Environment. All submitted bugs are being looked at over the next week or so, and we hope to have a reasonably functional version released upon 0.8. The current version is 0.7.2 and releases will continue to be made against the 0.7 line until it is deemed a project in PHP can be fully made and edited with the environment.
