We are still working on version 11 of PHPRunner and ASPRunner.NET. From the engineering point of view, this is a huge redesign that will significantly improve the user experience.

Many things take more time than expected. We expect a beta version to be available before the end of year 2023.


  • Much faster UI
  • Much faster work with large ( 1000+ tables ) projects
  • Multi-user work!
  • Revisions and roll-backs
  • Later: Mac/Linux versions

Digging deeper

  • Project data will be stored in the real database instead of SQLite and XML. It can eiher be a built-in database server that will come with the software or users can use their own database ( SQL Server, MySQL, Postgre ).
  • Since this is a regular database, data can be exported as a SQL file and stored in a version control system like SVN or Git.
  • UI improvement: project groups. You can create groups inside a project and move objects like tables and views there. Each group can also have its own relationship diagram. These groups will appear on all screens in the software.
  • Multi-user environment. One user starts editing table settings, this table automatically becomes locked, all other users will see it in read-only mode. Once user saves the project, new settings can be immediately seen by other users. There will also be manual lock functionality that would allow to make changes to common settings like Security.
  • Developers can be located anywhere in the world. There will be no need to provide a direct access to the database for remote users. PHPRunner/ASPRunner.NET will connect to the application server which will handle all database communication.
  • Revisions. You can review all revisions, can open an old version of the project in read-only mode, can rollback to that revision if required. Open two copies of the same project in two different instances of PHPRunner or ASPRunner.NET, one is current and another one is an older revision, and then copy something from one project to another.
  • Adding comments to saves/revisions ( manually and automatically ). Comments will be searchable that will help you quickly locate the revision you looking for.

This will be a game-changer! Plus it won’t break project compatibility and all v10.x project will open and build without any issues. Also, switching to HTML-based UI will make PHPRunner and ASPRunner.NET wizard software much better looking. It opens possibilities like light and dark themes in the software itself.

  1. I wish I could use phprunner 11 now, by switching date/time to ‘July-2023’ in all my electronic gadgets like laptop, mobile.

  2. This is the only software I look forward to when new updates like this rolls around.

    I might be a nerd at heart but I just love when new features get released and my projects just magically improve without much effort in updating the code.

    This program has always been a game changer when it comes to developing mysql and php projects. The lead programmer of the company understands how to run a business and understands the needs of programmers. Every feature that gets implemented is well thought out and adds great value.

    Much love from Canada.

  3. I love this app since I started using it in 2010, I have grown with it and will continue to use it. It’s is a powerful app and the best in the market. Love it and looking GL forward for version 11.

  4. I hope there will be progress on the mobile side, so that it is enough just to have phprunner represent building mobile applications for android and ios

  5. Feature request:

    Too often, I get into building and forget to “save” my phpr project… I might be hours and multiple builds in. While you’ve added the autosave feature, it’s not 100% (sometimes missing several Builds/Uploads). Would like the option of “saving” a version of my phpr file each time I do a build.

  6. If the latest version is going to be an HTML-based UI, then you can probably have PHPRunner as a web application. Running in a browser? It is probably more complicated than that. You guys are amazing. Thank you.

  7. Feature Request

    Please add support for git repositories.

    What I would like to see is the ability to save project data to a private git repo like gitlab.
    I work sometimes using multiple computers mainly use 1 computer at home and I use my laptop when traveling. having a way to sync the 2 or more computers + backup to the cloud would be awesome.
    Also on build /output would also like to be able to auto push to a git repo for those of us that may be using CI/CD processes.

  8. A MAC version would be so GREAT. Tired of working under Parallels! This would defenatly make be upgrade to version 11

  9. It not depend to html interface to run on web. Currently we can do it. The new html interface will be good to become better the web site appearance. .

  10. Well done, guys, on this fantastic work. I’ve been using PHPRunner since version 8, and I’m amazed day by day by its capabilities and ease of delivering professional applications in record time. I’ve developed various types of applications to the great satisfaction of my clients and myself. The only thing I used to criticize about PHPRunner was its design aspect, which I believe will change significantly with version 11. I’m really excited to see what has been done, and I’m sure I’ll be amazed once again.
    Great job to all of you, and eagerly looking forward to version 11 as soon as possible.

  11. Congratulations to the working group
    For the great effort that power
    even more this great product and
    consolidated in the market.

    Greetings from Patagonia.

  12. Will Bootstrap/j query will be easy to integrate?
    Does whole project has be re-build when you only make changes one page for just simple changes?
    Will it have tons events built in?
    UI should be similar CodeCharge?

  13. Hey, this sounds great! No problem re. roll out date – take your time, better to release a stable version than to rush things.
    Kind regards from Switzerland!

  14. Sergey,
    It has been long years and long pain you and your team had been to make this a best product. I see it as a non stop development. PhPRunner is unique and everyone loves it.
    Congratulations to you and your team Sergey, you made this world a better place once again.

  15. Use our own database for storing project data??? Are you saying that in 1 single update query I can change all the “Add new” buttons to “Add New” buttons?? And the “Back to list” buttons can be corrected to “Back to List” buttons??? WITHOUT HAVING TO MANUALLY EDIT EVERY SINGLE DAMN ONE???? Praise the lord sign me up for the renewal fee.

  16. Really looking forward to Linux support! Hopefully this will be delivered simultaneously with the closely upcoming Windows version.

    With regard to the statement “Project data will be stored in the real database instead of SQLite and XML.” … hopefully this does NOT mean project configuration data will be inserted into the SAME database which the PHPRunner project will be editing. [ Various competitors of yours “dirty” the database like that (adding fields, tables and similar), making them MUCH LESS desirable — especially when such database must be used with *additional* CRUD (or even just “read”) paradigms! In those cases things get confusing (and less useful!) quickly. ]

    Good luck with the upcoming version.

  17. A great team for developing web applications We aspire to add the feature of creating mobile applications on the same web application created

  18. This is really a big deal and a huge game changer. You guys just keep on impressing me!!

  19. Hi Sergey,

    To be very honest with you and your team Sergey, in my 24 years of experience with databases and frameworks and ERP, I have seen PHPRunner coming up in the race in a visible way and that too very fast ! You are doing developments like big creamy layer companies who own the authority currently.

    I must take this opportunity to congratulate you and your team, may god keep you and your team up to the pace and developments by giving you more power and blessings.
