ActiveState’s Komodo IDE 5.1 Release Improves Code Navigation

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – March 24, 2009 – ActiveState Software, the dynamic languages company, released Komodo IDE 5.1 today. Komodo IDE 5.1 builds upon the award-winning integrated development environment with new and improved features for developers working in small teams.

With the new release of Komodo IDE comes improved navigation. The introduction of the History feature lets users browse though the files and buffer locations they've been editing recently with just forward and back buttons and a drop list in the toolbar. Find Highlighting enables visual markers for find/search matches, independent of the syntax coloring information. Hyperlinks adds new code intelligence: Ctrl+mouse-hover will hyperlink interesting regions in the text—more than just "Go to Definition" links. And a new "fast open" dialog eases opening the files within a current working directory, files within the current project, recently opened/closed files as well as switching to a currently opened file.

Today's release of Komodo IDE 5.1 also includes support for a new platform: Linux/x86_64. Komodo IDE's first native 64-bit platform build reflects the growth in Linux x86_64 installs.

All platforms also benefit from improved localization and numerous bug fixes in today's release of Komodo IDE 5.1. Like all Komodo IDE updates, this release is free to all Komodo IDE 5.x license holders and ActivePerl Pro Studio and ActiveTcl Pro Studio subscribers. The latest release of Komodo IDE 5.1 is available for download now from and new users can take Komodo IDE 5.1 for a test drive with a free 21-day trial.
