PHP indexer now 3 times faster
Zend Studio 13.5 introduces a new PHP indexer, based on Apache Lucene, that replaces the prior PHP indexer based on the H2 database. The new indexer allows faster execution of basic tasks like displaying code assist, validating code, navigating through source code, searching for PHP types and methods, and building the type hierarchy. All these tasks execute up to 3 times faster. The indexing process itself runs up to 3 times faster too and consumes up to 3 times less space on the file system.
Query the index database while it’s still being built
A noteworthy feature of the new PHP indexer is that it allows querying the index database while it’s still being built. This means no more freezing of the IDE if the code assist is triggered while the projects are still being indexed. You can start being productive the very first second after launching Zend Studio.
Execute your code when you want
Any long-running background jobs that lock the IDE workspace no longer block the executing run/debug launchers. You can execute your code as soon as you want, while the IDE is still executing the code validation, indexing, and other background jobs.
PHP 7 is the default
PHP 7 is the default interpreter. New PHP projects are configured for PHP 7.
