What’s New in Komodo IDE 7

Deploy to the Cloud with Komodo IDE 7 and Stackato

Deploy directly from the desktop to the cloud using new integration with Stackato. With the Stackato client interface, you can test and debug applications in the environment that they will be deployed.

Synchronize Multiple Workstations

Komodo Sync lets you securely share your important data across multiple machines, including toolbox items, remote server accounts and templates. With per-user licensing, Sync makes it easier for you to work across multiple computers and operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux).
