JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of PhpStorm 3.0, an intelligent code-centric PHP IDE.

Already known for its uniquely intelligent code editor, PhpStorm takes a big step forward in helping keep your code clean, well-structured and efficient.

• This major release introduces the Smart Duplicated Code Detector to help you quickly find similar blocks through your entire code base and securely get rid of them without losing the intended functionality.
• A new integrated UML tool allows you to quickly get a bird’s-eye view of your project structure, or even a semantic view of the changes in the recent VCS commits made by your colleagues.
• To ensure that your code works fast and doesn’t cause any performance bottlenecks, the IDE now includes a profiler, a new PHPUnit test runner and JSTestDriver.

“Here at JetBrains we really care about productivity, and the cornerstone of productivity is the quality of your code,” says Alexey Gopachenko, PhpStorm project lead. “Every developer constantly faces the challenge of keeping their code clear, fast and error-free. PhpStorm 3.0 takes over this challenge to help you concentrate on your big ideas, instead of getting bogged down in the routine details.”

The release also includes support for popular and dynamically evolving technologies such as CoffeeScript and XSLT 2.0, along with an integrated XSLT debugger.

The key new functionality in PhpStorm 3.0 includes:
– Smart Duplicated Code Detector
– PHP UML roundtrip diagrams
– Profiling results browser for Xdebug and Zend Debugger engines
– PhpUnit 3.6 integration
– CoffeeScript support
– Significant improvements to FTP/SFTP Sync
