Support phar in Eclipse PDT The phar extenstion is added as built-in since php 5.3, Eclipse PDT should identify this file and provide capabilities to manage this files quickly with code navigation and exploration. Roy Ganor Roy Ganor <interested student here>
Line wrap in Eclipse PHP editors The Virtual (also called "soft") word wrap feature is not a full solution for Eclipse editors. New menu item "Virtual Word Wrap" is added to editor context menu. Currently it is wrapping properly BUT will make line numbering, active line highlight etc rendering damaged. All damaged line numbers, line highlights etc will be OK after disabling wrap for active editor! Roy Ganor Roy Ganor <interested student here>
