PORTLAND, OR. - July 25, 2006 - ActiveState Software Inc., the leading provider of tools and services for dynamic languages, today announced the technical pre-release of Komodo 4.0, introducing advanced support for Web 2.0 technologies to the award-winning IDE for dynamic languages. The release is available for download at: http://www.activestate.com/komodo/beta
"Increasingly, Web 2.0 development requires users to spend as much time in the design layer as they do in back-end business logic," says David Ascher, CTO at ActiveState. "With advanced support for web scripting languages, and the addition of high-value tools for managing, testing, and debugging client/server interactions, Komodo 4.0 allows developers to manage the complete webdev process within a single, feature-rich workspace."
In addition, the 4.0 release adds Vi bindings, enabling Vi users to enjoy familiar, keyboard-driven commands while enjoying the advanced capabilities of an IDE.
Komodo 4.0 will be showcased at this week's O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON), July 24-28, in Portland, Oregon. In addition, ActiveState is previewing a beta release of PPM4, the updated Perl Package Manager for downloading and installing pre-compiled versions of most CPAN modules; and new self-help user forums.
