Today we released version 2.3.1...

This release involves further enhancements of the IDE. The release notes can be found here.

This version will verify the defined MariaDB/MySQL port of the loaded project and the configured port and will pop up a dialog to correct the connection. This is implemented to fix the issue reported by our current user pool. The original port 3306 was changed to 3307 which caused issues with older projects.

The (sample) project loader has been upgraded to support the creation of the sample database (if required).

This release also brings an updated implementation of PHP 8.2 and XDebug. Both modules are not been formally released yet, and we deploy the current release candidates. The debugger is not fully tested yet, but it now works on PHP 8.2.

New releases for the modules are optional. If you have a recent version of PHsPeed, then run the config utility and select the incremental updates. New installs should do this automatically; if not, you can use the same procedure. New releases are always announced in our newsletter (subscribe if you haven't), our website, and the IDE landing page.

Version 2.3 Released

Today we released version 2.3

Although this version is mainly a maintenance release, several things have changed. The first important thing is that you cannot upgrade your current PHsPeed version, but you need to install this version as a new release. There is no dependency anymore on the central ini file. Instead, each version from now on can be installed separately. If you want to uninstall PHsPeed, then just remove the folder. PHsPeed does not store data in your registry.

Some changes affect your current projects, especially on grids used in crud environments. You will find these in the release notes.

Happy coding!

Announcement PHsPeed 2.3

Final beta tests are running...

Now the final test is in progress, we can announce that we will release PHsPeed version 2.3 shortly. As written before, this is a major maintenance release, and the focus was to make the product more future-proof. The applied changes allow us to update parts of the software without creating the full package. Thus making it possible to have more intermediate updates when applicable.

An overview of the new release can now be found in a new section of our website: release notes.

PHP 8.2

Version 2.3 also deploys an initial release of PHP 8.2. Because PHP 8.2 is in development, and the same goes for XDebug you can expect issues. Currently, you can select PHP 8.2 and test your application(s). But PHPMyAdmin, currently does not run under PHP 8.2, and XDebug is not functional. But we will update the modules when they come out. Formal support of PHP 8.2 is expected in the release in January.

Customer Portal

Soon we will deploy our customer portal. This will enable you to view your registration and licenses and to buy/upgrade PHsPeed. In the near future, we will add more functionality.


In the bug tracker are a number of feature requests. We will move them into a separate section, and try to address them. The fact is that we will continue to work on the wizards that allow you to create code-less applications. It is well known that our policy remains to work on applications that require as less code as possible, but that we still believe that developers are needed to finetune and model an application around the business rules. Yes, many managers believe that the users have to learn to adapt to what the application brings, and that software development is too expensive to maintain. But when end-users are not working efficiently, or in an 80-20 model, this will easily lead to less motivation, complaints, ill employees, and can lead to increasing costs. With PHsPeed we try to increase the productivity of developers, with full focus on your end-users.

Customer connection

We are very interested in your opinion about PHsPeed, the good and the bad. We welcome ideas from our customer pool to make the product better. Our increasing customer pool is a real motivation to continue improving the product. If you are a customer and reading this, our forum is a good place to communicate. Consider using the forum if your question could help the community. For fast response, the service desk will always be available.

Happy coding!
