We are pleased to announce that Aptana is combining our efforts with those of the Eclipse PDT (PHP Development Tools) project, the official set of Eclipse development tools for PHP. We will be contributing various parts of the Aptana PHP plugin to that project. We believe that having a single plugin will be best for the PHP developers community, and look forward to a long and productive relationship with the PDT team.
Even though I had some choice words for Aptana in the past, I think this is a great move and should benefit PHP developers everywhere who rely on Eclipse for their development needs.
Let’s hope this is a sign that Aptana is going to work closer with the Eclipse community in the future.
