No, but I see this as a plus and such things are quite annoying IMO. Say you're writing a multi-line string for a query. The thing will be marking every line as an error until you add a semicolon at the end. That's really really distracting.
It will, however, gray out things when you start a string, so if you don't escape something properly or forget to close the string, you'll clearly see that based on the colors. Likewise, when you click of a brace or parenthesis, it will show you its complement. Assuming you're properly spacing your code according to phpBB guidelines, there two features will prevent the vast majority of parse errors.
