Jcx.Software recently announced the release of VS.Php 2.4 for Visual Studio, a Php integrated development environment (IDE) for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE. VS.Php 2.4 Standalone Edition is now $99.99 per developer down from $149.99.

VS.Php 2.4 adds support for XDebug, the most popular open source debugging engine for Php. With XDebug, VS.Php now supports all the major open source Php debugging modules. VS.Php 2.4 also added the website copy feature. This feature lets you drag and drop files from the server to the client and viceversa. The website copy feature is an addition to the existing deployment module in VS.Php. Developers can keep their local copy of their application in sync with changes made on the remote server. It also provides the ability to deploy only the files you want by using the simple drag and drop interface.

VS.Php 2.4 comes in two different editions:

VS.Php 2.3 Standalone Edition
VS.Php 2.3 for Visual Studio 2005
