I see this has been brought up before, but I thought I would start a new topic, as the rest seem to be archived.
I have been using Aptana as my main IDE for a little while, but since its most recent update, it seems to work brilliantly as a Silverstripe IDE.
I don't know what happened, but since I installed the latest update, if I setup a new silverstripe project as a php project, I get full code completion for sapphire classes, as well as documented popups for any class I try to call, including details of expectable variables. Not to mention full class and function lists and loads of other stuff you would get in a high end IDE like Microsofts Visual Studio.
I am getting the same with both Aptana on my Mac and my Linux box. I have tried other software to develop for silverstripe, but I am really rocking Aptana! I would recommend it for anyone looking to develop Silverstripe.
I will just post the link, then stop pimping the thing, honest . http://aptana.com/

Yeah, I used to use Aptana too. Now I just use eclipse with PDT (http://www.eclipse.org/pdt/). Offers code-completion and other nice stuff too.
There are some nice plugins out there, like subclipse, a SVN plugin for eclipse (works in aptana too, since aptana is eclipse based).
Sometimes eclipse/aptana acts very sluggish and seems bloated, but most of the time it works fine.

I still had aptana installed but rarely used it due to it being massive.
After firing it up again and update it(as your suggestion), it automatically recognized the sapphire classes and code completion is now working.

I tend to stay using TextPad (which is also a far superior SQL client for Mysql than phpmyadmin btw). With a couple of macros programmed in, syntax files set-up and workspaces defined it works fine.
I do miss Visual Studio greatly (I used to be a c/c++ and c# programmer) as it did code completion, intellesense and debugging really well (2010 even has a historical debugger now!). I have tried...
-difficult to setup for debugging
-strange issue with refreshing files changed outside of the editor
I just tried aptana (again) and it error installing any php development tools, so no code completion etc.
Lastly I have installed netbeans again to give it another go... and I am stumped what to place in the new php project with existing sources for the index.php file (required for debugging)... what do you put? (pic attached)

I usually put it like my screenshot (when NetBeans doesn't this for me automagically).
Well and it works quite fine.

Netbeans with a PHP flavor is the best I've found - used to be an eclipse/aptana guy. Netbeans seems to do what I need and seems "cleaner". I've enjoyed it - made a project, blocked out the assets and silverstripe-cache folder from the project - walla works great.
