Initial Language Server Protocol Support in Apache NetBeans 10

Did you know that the first stage of Language Server Protocol (LSP) support will be included in Apache NetBeans 10?

See this PR for details, with instructions for how to use it.


Some screenshots for Kotlin support via LSP:

PHP 7.3 Support

Hi all. Today, we will briefly show you about PHP7.3 support which will be available in the next NetBeans version i.e. NetBeans 10.

First of all, I strongly hope that new features are tested by PHP users before NetBeans 10 is released because there should be bugs. Definitely, need your help! If you are interested in them, just test them. You can download a dev version here.

PHP 7.3 Support

To enable it, you have to set PHP 7.3 as the PHP version of your PHP project.


NetBeans provides support for the new three syntaxes.

Allow a trailing comma in function calls


list() Referenct Assignment


Flexible Heredoc and Nowdoc Syntaxes


Note: We won't provide support for the old syntax any longer. i.e. NetBeans treats the following code as an error.

$heredoc = <<< END

PHP 7.1, 7.2 and more PHP features

The other PHP features for NetBeans 10 are here. We have also implemented PHP7.1, 7.2, new hints, new code foldings and more.

That's all for today. As always, please test it. You can download a development version from Jenkins Build. If you find some issues or enhancements, please report them to JIRA with your exact steps to reproduce them. (Components: php - Editor). Thanks.
