[geeklog-devel] Zend Editor

I've tried, in vain, to get free professional edition copies of Zend 
Studio.  The best they could offer was the academic discount of 25% 
off.   That takes the $250 price tag down to $187.  For what it is 
worth, my full trial version expired today and a few features got 
disabled.  To my amazement, however, the debugger still works which...by 
itself is worth gold.

That being said, I'd really encourage those who haven't tried it to give 
it a try.  I've dumped my ActiveState license for Zend and I would have 
done so even if my employer wasn't buying us some licenses.  The 
features that I have noticed that have been disabled is CVS integration 
and the introspection stuff which is handy but not terribly useful, IMHO.

Anyway, let me know if anybody wants the full blown version at that price.
