VANCOUVER, British Columbia – July 17, 2012 – ActiveState, whose software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to cloud, today announced the release of Komodo IDE 7.1, the latest version of the “world’s fiercest IDE.” Komodo is an award-winning multi-platform integrated development environment (IDE) for Python, PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Perl, and web development.

Komodo IDE 7.1 offers performance enhancements to encourage faster web application development, including automatic variable highlighting; new Source Code Control push capabilities; debugging of cloud-deployed apps within the ActiveState Stackato Platform-as-a-Service environment; and support for PHP 5.4, Node.js 0.8, Python 3.3, Perl 5.16, and Ruby 1.9.3. Komodo IDE 7.1’s language extension feature lets users add their own languages.

“The Komodo IDE continues to push the development environment envelope”, says Bart Copeland, ActiveState President and CEO. “Komodo has long been a hallmark of efficient application development. With its seamless Stackato integration, Komodo 7.1 makes it easy for developers to innovate using the language that’s right for their enterprise, and then—with Stackato—deploy effortlessly to the cloud.”

“Komodo has always been fast, furious, and user-friendly” adds Todd Whiteman, Komodo Development Lead. “7.1 stays true to that mantra. We are always implementing practical improvements, as well as supporting the latest language versions, like PHP 5.4, Node.js 0.8 and Ruby 1.9.3.
