When opening NetBeans, it always scans the global include path for PHP files (PEAR, PECL, etc.) which already takes its
time. After opening a project with lots of files, it takes ages until all is scanned. Until the scan is finished,
NetBeans runs sluggish and the Navigator is not usable.
Since we mostly work with the eZ Publish CMS which consists of hundreds (if not thousands) of files, you often need 5 or
more minutes before you can start working on a project.
We'd need some metadata caching so that the navigator, syntax hints, etc. work directly after opening a project. The data
could be updated on-the-fly when opening files. There should also be a manual way to trigger updating the cache.
Not PHP area, reassigning, please evaluate.
Files crawling and up-to-date check of the indexed files is now much faster in dev builds.
