Yessiree, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Komodo IDE 5.0 is now in beta!
The beta phase is an opportunity for the Komodo community to help ActiveState test new functionality, identify bugs, and enhance the quality of the upcoming release. If you’re up for the challenge, go check out the new features:
- Shared code: With new support for the Git, Mercurial (hg), and Bazaar distributed version control systems (or the already supported Subversion, Perforce, and CVS), you can share your code whatever SCC system you choose. And smart cross-SCC system checkout wizardry makes it easier to get to work on shared repositories.
- Shared beauty: Consistent formatting improves code readability and maintainability in a team. Easily hook external code formatting tools (like PHP Beautifier, Perltidy, and astyle) into Komodo IDE 5.0 or add tighter integration via an extension.
- Shared speed: Komodo IDE 5.0 is now built on the Mozilla 1.9 codebase (the same codebase as Firefox 3) and Python 2.6, so it’s speedier, prettier (particularly the more native look on OS X), and has new features to aid in stability.
- And more, naturally!
