It has been a busy week. Starting off with the release of ActivePerl 5.10, a staff holiday party, and now we have just released ActiveTcl 8.5; available in conjunction with the official release by the Tcl Core Team of version 8.5.0 of the Tcl dynamic language and the Tk GUI toolkit.

ActiveTcl 8.5 now runs 10% faster than the previous version, due to bytecode optimizations, object caching and reduced memory usage. Developers will also benefit from richer time and date tools including year-2038 compliance, and a new and simpler module packaging standard.

Ending 2007 with a bang is how we roll here at ActiveState.

Get ActiveTcl 8.5 now!
