Miami, FL, June 23, 2008: Jcx.Software today announces the release of VS.Php 2.5 for Visual Studio 2008, a Php integrated development environment (IDE) for Microsoft Visual Studio. Like previous versions of VS.Php, it comes in three different editions:

- VS.Php 2.5 for Visual Studio 2005
- VS.Php 2.5 Standalone Edition, designed for customers that do not own Visual Studio.
VS.Php 2.5 includes the Zend Framework and integrates it seamlessly to the Visual Studio IDE. The Zend Framework integration includes the following features:
- Zend Framework integration to the Php preview built-in engine.
- Intellisense support for Zend Framework classes, including support for class auto loaders.
- Zend Framework Model-View-Controller project wizard.
Also in this release there are a number of features designed to enhance the Php editing experience including. PhpDoc comment support has been improved and now comments can be autogenerated from the Php code to reduce the time needed to document code.
The new class auto loader for intellisense support allows VS.Php to find the files where classes are defined. The class auto loader also looks up any reference of classes in the code including static method calls and PhpDoc comments.
VS.Php 2.5 also comes with a number of new project types. A new project type is the command line project. This allows to develop CLI script applications and debug them locally using XDebug. The command line project also offers the ability to specify command line parameters to the starting Php script.
