As you may know, we've recently added Golang support in Komodo IDE 9. You asked for it, you got it! Go is a statically-typed language with syntax loosely derived from C, with added garbage collection, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities and a large standard library. There's more, but you get the idea.
When you're working on a project on your own, the power of Komodo IDE is obvious in the features: code intelligence, debugging, version control, great workflow and file management, and extensibility. The newest track changes, commando and markdown viewer add to the power of Komodo.
It's Friday, so please allow me some indulgence. A child of the eighties (Err... Well, maybe nineties... A lady never tells!) I've been going through my playlists today, "rocking out" to some of the great 80's classics. And it's occurred to me that many of the songs could – if you really, REALLY stretch your imagination (or if you're immersed in Komodo musings all day) – apply to Komodo.
We released Komodo 9 in late March and introduced a plethora of cool new features in our IDE. With every new release we tend to throw a mini-celebration and discount new/upgrade purchases, and this was no exception. There’s still 1 week left to save on Komodo IDE and Pro Studio!
Our team has just arrived back from an amazing PyCon event, and I wanted to share some of our findings from the show. Since Komodo IDE is built in Python and on the Mozilla framework, and since ActiveState is a founding member of the Python Software Foundation, PyCon has always been close to our hearts! As proud PyCon gold sponsors and attendees, over the past few days we've learned (or relearned):
There's still lots of cool things going on with Python.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve just released Komodo 9, and we're celebrating the evolution of Komodo: now better, faster, and stronger than ever!
We hope you love Komodo 9 as much as we do. It's been great to see how this release has come together and we’d like to give a special shout out to the community members who helped us test during the beta and RC stages. You’ve helped make this the best Komodo yet.
With the [launch of Komodo IDE 9][blog/komodo-9-released-better-faster-stronger], we’re celebrating 15 busy years working with the most vibrant, fun, and at times quirky developer community in the world. We love the energy, creativity and all the fun person-to-person connections we’ve built over time.
