The todo helper extension, useful for finding those todo markers inside your source files has now been updated to work in conjunction with the new "Find in Project" functionality brought in by Komodo 4.3.
What it essentially means is that, once Komodo is built from trunk, all Komodo users get a speed bump. Looking forward, we will likely get another speed improvement when we migrate to Mozilla 2 and Tamarin down the road.

Today we released Komodo 4.3 after several months development; 4.3 is a nice little release that builds on the solid based of Komodo 4 with some nice improvements both in IDE-only features ( Unit test support ) and fully-open-source features on the Komodo Edit codebase:
Unit Test support for major Lanaguages we support, including Python, Perl, PHP
Enhanced asynchronous support for SCC commands, allowing for much smoother source code control operations.
Komodo 4.3 Beta 2 is out and we're closing in on the remaining list of blocker bugs before release. I'd like to put a call out to anyone that has created a Komodo Extension to please update your extension so that it will work with 4.3. We are not aware of any major API changes that should cause your code problems, so in most cases all you should need to do is update maxVersion in your install.rdf to at least 4.3.*.
As well, if you have previously posted your extension to the extensions forum, you should feel free to instead host your extension on the site:
With the upcoming Komodo 4.3 release (we've just released Alpha builds), check out the new Find/Replace functionality now included in OpenKomodo:
Find and Replace changes
The Komodo Find/Replace dialog has been completely redesigned, unifying the old Find/Replace and "Find in Files" dialog, to make it easier to use. As part of this re-write some new features have been added, like the ability to search in a given project!
