For 2011, I've committed to upgrading my project to a MVC framework, and have chosen Zend Framework to base it on. To lessen the learning curve, I'm looking for an environment that has code auto-completion, debugging, all the goodies you need in an IDE.
Netstorm / PHPStorm look like the perfect solution (NetBeans and Eclipse look good too, but they're a bit frustrating to set up and learn).
My question: I'm an experienced developer, but new to PHPStorm/WebStorm. It looks like Version 2.0 is close to release, would I be safe downloading the Windows version of that instead of Version 1.02? Are the documentation and tutorials sufficiently similar that I'd be able to configure and learn it, or would I be better off installing 1.0?
If 2.0 isn't crashing and all the 1.0 features are working, my preference would be to install that, and I'd be happy to go through the documentation and tutorials and provide feedback as a newbie to things that may have changes or not be working.
