ActiveState has released version 7.1 of its integrated development environment (IDE) Komodo. The latest release of the IDE for Python, PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Perl and web development includes several improvements to the editor as well as new features for cloud deployment and easier integration with version control systems. Komodo 7.1 also updates the IDE's support for several languages and frameworks and lets users add language support themselves.

Komodo 7.1 introduces variable highlighting to the IDE: by clicking on a variable, users can highlight all occurrences of that variable in the source code. A new SCC Push function makes it easier for developers to push changes to a version control system of their choice, and integration with ActiveState's Stackato cloud platform has been improved by allowing the IDE to debug applications that are running in a Stackato Micro Cloud on the fly.

The new version brings support for new versions of Node.js, PHP, Python, Perl and Ruby. It also adds support for the Twig template language for PHP. The introduction of the new Komodo Language Extension allows users to easily add support for new languages to the IDE or improve support for existing ones. More information on how this feature works is available in the Komodo 7.1 documentation.

More details of the new features in Komodo 7.1 can be found in the release announcement and on the What's New in Komodo IDE 7 page. The IDE is available as the standard version for $295 or as the open source Komodo Edit, which lacks the code profiling features, regular expression debugger, source code control integration and other features included in the commercial version.
