>> Hey fellow Ubuntu users,

>> Java and gEdit for PHP.
>> Eclipse works well for Java development however I've been unable to

>> trying to get a local SVN instance to work). PHP development I'm not
>> so sure about using it for - I've looked at Eclipse PDT but it seems a
>> bit excessive for what I want and I found myself getting lost in the
>> interface.
>> So to summarise:
>> - Version Control
>> - Revision Comparisons
>> - PHP and Java
>> - Autocompletion (not essential but nice to have)
>> Anyone have any experience in applications to meet these requirements?

My vote also goes for netbeans. 6.1 is in the repositories (i think),
but I downloaded 6.5 from their site for php, and it works like a
