@kungfufrog This plugin needs a higher api version

I cannot find this in the plugins repository for IntelliJ IDEA. Is it ok that I downloaded the JAR from here and manually installed in my IDE? (IntelliJ IDEA) I use IntelliJ for PHP/Symfony2 development and always will!

Wow! I just found this plugin while I was rating the Symfony2 plugin and this is the one thing that I have been missing. I really like your plugins, thank you very much for you work!

Good plugin. It would be good if autocompletion was also triggered from incomplete references (such as @ODM\...), not only in empty phpDoc tags; or at least this behaviour would be explained here.
