Re: [pdt-dev] PHP 5.3.0 support

Couldn't find an existing bug for this enhancement, so I've opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=234938

Once the PDT devs see it, they can comment there on schedule/feasibility.

Of course if you're itching to see this implemented, I'm sure they'd be happy to have a patch/contribution from you. :)

As an aside, the Eclipse newsgroups generally work better if you're looking for support. Mailing lists usually are for dev-to-community announcements and dev-to-dev discussions. Bugzilla is best for feature requests and offers to help / contribute.

First off I am new to this mailing list so if this question has been asked before please bear with me.

Is there any plans for adding support for the new language features introduced in PHP 5.3.0 any time soon? I'm currently working on a project of mine where I have started to take advantage of the newly addition to the scope operator which allows you to use a variable as the class name just like you can when creating a new class. Today this results in a parse error in PDT.

Example code to reproduce the problem:

class foo {
public static function bar { echo 'foo::bar()!'; }
$var = 'foo';
$var::bar(); // This works in PHP 5.3.0 but breaks in both the last release of PDT and the nightly build
