When the story made the front page of Digg the only concern people had was a lack of PHP support. In the comments a developer from Aptana said “We’re working on adding some PHP support! We’d love to hear exactly what you’d like to see with regards to PHP. Come on over to our forums at http://www.aptana.com/forums/ or submit to our bug tracker at http://www.aptana.com/trac/ and let us know what you want to see.” So this is definitely a possibility and would make this application a real eye-opener for Adobe/Macromedia. There is a large screenshot gallery available and several screencasts that show Aptana in action. If you have already decided that you like it then you can go straight to the download page. Please remember that this is currently Beta software and may not be stable in all situations.
