We said we’d release Komodo IDE 5.0 today, and we have! Don’t you love it when people keep their promises?
The latest release is focused on features for teams, like new support for the Git, Mercurial (hg), and Bazaar distributed version control systems (in addition to the already supported Subversion, Perforce, and CVS). And smart cross-SCC system checkout wizardry makes it easier to get to work on shared repositories.
Sharing code across a team is also better with Komodo IDE 5.0’s improved code formatting. Consistent formatting makes reading and maintaining code easier, so Komodo IDE makes it simple with built-in code formatting tools and the ability to easily hook in external code formatting tools (like PHP Beautifier, Perltidy, and astyle).
The Komodo IDE 5.0 beta release had developers a-twitter, prompting tweets including “Komodo IDE 5 is looking pretty schweeeeet,” “Je teste Komodo 5 qui est vraiment un très bon IDE pour le web,” and “For people that haven’t been following the 5.0 development of Komodo IDE: bunch of goodies!!!”
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.
The Komodo IDE dev team added top-requested features like multiple top-level windows and cleaner user interfaces for tabs and sidebars too. To see the complete release notes, visit https://docs.activestate.com/komodo/5.0/.
The other thing we did for teams? Killer pricing. For a limited time, ActiveState is offering 5-packs of Komodo IDE for $995, a savings of nearly $500 off the regular price ($1475). A 5-pack dev of Komodo IDE is like getting 2 free licenses for your team.
