New features in this release include automatic variable highlighting, new source code control push capabilities, and the option to debug cloud-deployed apps within the ActiveState Stackato PaaS environment. As well as a new language extension feature, there is also support for PHP 5.4, Node.js 0.8, Python 3.3, Perl 5.16, and Ruby 1.9.3.
ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland says that with its Stackato integration, Komodo 7.1 makes it easy for developers to innovate using the language that's right for their enterprise, and then — with Stackato — deploy to the cloud.
"Komodo has always been fast, furious, and user-friendly," said Todd Whiteman, Komodo development lead at ActiveState. "Komodo 7.1 stays true to that mantra. We are always implementing practical improvements, as well as supporting the latest language versions, like PHP 5.4, Node.js 0.8, and Ruby 1.9.3. And of course, we're moving into a new generation of platforms, supporting Stackato as an enterprise-ready Platform-as-a-Service."
