    RAMAT GAN, Israel, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Extending its leadership in PHP
 development, deployment and optimization software, Zend Technologies Ltd.

 the industry's first complete PHP development platform. The "all-in-one"
 client-sever development package conveniently integrates all the applications
 developers need to code, debug and deploy advanced PHP e-commerce and business
 applications.
 
     The Zend Studio 2.0 includes:
     -- Zend Development Environment -- combines a comprehensive editor with
        the industry's leading code completion engine and an integrated,
        top-of-the-line debugger to speed development time and significantly
        reduce time-to-market.
     -- Zend Server Center -- enables seamless integration, configuration and
        management of server-side components such as the Zend Studio Server,
        Zend Debug Server (remote version), PHP 4.1.0, and Apache 1.3.22.

        and PHP reference center at a click of a button.
 
     PHP for Everyone
     The Zend Studio 2.0 enables mainstream web developers to code robust PHP
 applications by incorporating such features as powerful code completion for
 HTML and all PHP constructs, integrated local and remote debugging, intuitive
 server administration from the convenience of a browser, and a comprehensive
 PHP help and reference center at a click of a button. As a result of growing
 demand for PHP tools across a broad range of mainstream development
 communities, the Zend Studio is completely platform independent and localized
 in English, German, French, Dutch, Japanese and Korean.
     "With PHP's popularity soaring, we created the Zend Studio to address the
 needs of enterprise PHP and mainstream Web application developers worldwide.
 Over 7 million sites run PHP now and developers are increasingly eager to
 reduce their time to market while improving the quality of their code," said
 Doron Gerstel, President and CEO of Zend. "We're thrilled to introduce a
 product that is poised to become the de-facto PHP development tool for
 enterprise PHP developers and enable every mainstream Web developer to begin
 developing advanced PHP applications."
     Leon Atkinson, author of the best-selling PHP book, Core PHP Programming
 says, "Zend Studio 2.0 represents another important milestone in PHP's
 development. With the new visual debugger, PHP programmers can spend less time
 finding bugs and more time programming."
