PHP Development Plan

In progress, not final version

This document contains a compilation of PHP features and task, which should be done in NetBeans 7.0 timeframe.

Features, RFEs and tasks are sorted by priorities, top-down, meaning P1 as the highest priority. Thus it's very likely that features on top of the list will be implemented firstly. The features in bold are usually larger ones, mainly concerning the time needed to implement them (but just a guess, might be wrong estimation). Also this features should be split in smaller tasks.

P1 - must have feature, task. Without it IDE might be even awkward to use. Almost bug. Will be fixed soon
P2 - usually known, wanted feature, already requested by more users
P3 - would be very nice to have
P4 - others ideas
