Komodo has always been adept at working with multiple languages. When we realized that multi-language templating systems were becoming more common, we made it easier to create new colorizers for them. But until now, Komodo wasn't very flexible at checking the syntax of these documents.
We love fan mail, especially when it's on Twitter where everyone can see it. Yago Jesus, a PDK and Komodo user, let us know how much he enjoyed using our software, and pointed out some software he's created for intrusion detection on Windows.
Komodo 7 Beta 1 is now available, with Edit builds as well as IDE. If you didn't get a chance to look at the Alpha, download the Beta now, give it a try, and let us know what you think. We'd love to get your feedback!
Here are some of the new features that we've put into it:
For programmers, one of the most common questions posed is "Why is my application taking so long?" For dynamic programming languages, there are often limited tools that can answer this important question, or variant questions like:
When we speak to ISVs, aerospace/defense contractors, or hardware manufacturers that have software interfaces - many of them like to use languages like Perl, Python, or Tcl to build or provide some functionality in their applications. However, some also ask "why should I use ActivePerl/Python/Tcl if open source options are free?"
I was at YAPC::NA in late June. I should have written a summary about it a long time ago, but I wanted to include a link to the video of my Stackato Lightning Talk. That has not been put up on the web yet, but it should eventually appear at http://www.presentingperl.org/.
There were many interesting things at YAPC::NA, but here are the things I still remember one month later. I guess that makes them some kind of personal highlights.
