Komodo IDE 10.1.2 Released

Update: December 5th

Unfortunately 10.1.2 introduced a small bug with frustrating consequences. We have released version 10.1.3 to address this. This is a very minor release that fixes bug #2180, which was causing the selection to expand when indenting or un-indenting. This bug was introduced in 10.1.2 due to the fix for bug #900 and we felt it significant enough to prioritize a quick update that addresses this issue.



Today we have released Komodo IDE 10.1.2, which fixes a long standing random crashes bug. It also addresses some stability issues which were primarily affecting fresh installs.

To obtain the new 10.1.2 update you can either check for updates in Komodo, wait for Komodo to pick them up automatically, or head to the download page to manually download and install the update.

Release Notes

Fix for random crashes: We've been investigating a random crashes bug that was affecting a small but significant number of our users. Due to the complexity of the bug and the fact that we have to this day not been able to reproduce it ourselves we this was a tough nut to crack. Luckily our ex-lead developer Todd Whiteman was affected by the crashes and kindly contributed a workaround. Komodo 10.1.2 will include this fix and should resolve these random crashes for people affected by it.

Fix instability on new installs: Due to a bug in the new tutorial feature introduced in 10.1, there were some stability issues in Komodo. Our first clue of a problem was when we noticed the editor history was no longer working in some cases. This has been addressed in version 10.1.2.
