What's New in Komodo 8.0
With Komodo 8, we wanted to bring you the best possible user experience. We've delivered that and more, with a lighter UI, faster editing and more flexibility. Here are some things you will love about Komodo 8:
New User InterfaceClean, lean and platform optimized.
MinimapReposition anywhere from a high-level view.
Retina Display Support (OSX)Rejoice!
Updated PlatformMozilla 18, Python 2.7, Scintilla 3.2.4.
Floating Side PanesUndock components and move them anywhere.
Open Files Side PaneOrganizes all your open files by language.
Auto Abbreviation SnippetsAutomatically trigger a selection of snippets.
Fast Open ShortcutsCreate shortcuts to long file paths.
New Language SupportLaravel and Sass
New User Interface
We've redesigned our UI from the ground up to give you a much better user experience. You'll appreciate seeing less clutter and more editing space. Every feature now has consistent styling and feels native to your OS.
Floating Side Panes
By popular request! Click to detach any side pane tab (ie. Places, Code Browser, Debug) and move it anywhere on screen. It's a much more flexible way to work, and even better if you have two monitors.
Open Files Side Pane
Managing tons of files is easier than ever. Files are now listed in a side pane that groups them by language. You can even hide all the editor tabs completely and just work off the Open Files pane.
Auto Abbreviation Snippets
Fast Open Shortcuts
We've made Fast Open faster. You can now make shortcuts to frequently used paths. Have a directory path like "/some/long/path/etc"? Make a shortcut for "code/" and see all the files in the directory.
Document getting long? The minimap gives you a high-level overview so you can scroll and reposition the editor on any targeted section of code.
We've added editing for Laravel Blade. Laravel is a powerful PHP framework that allows tremendous flexibility in design. We've also added syntax checking for Sass, an extension of CSS3 that adds nested rules, variables, and other fun stuff.
Retina Support - Mac OS X
Enjoy crystal clear high definition on the editor and the user interface. Nice.
