ActiveState has announced the release of version 7.0.0 of its Komodo integrated development environment (IDE) for Python, PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Perl and web development. The new version includes a code collaboration tool for sharing changes to selected users in real time and a sync feature for synchronising key bindings and preferences across multiple machines. Komodo 7.0 language support has been extended with editing and syntax checking for Node.js, CoffeeScript, LESS, CSS, EJS and Mojolicious. New code profiling features have also been added, but currently only support PHP and Python.

The development environment update brings integration with ActiveState's Stackato, a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product based on VMware's CloudFoundry platform. As Komodo is based on the same codebase as Firefox, Mozilla's Gecko platform, it also benefits from performance and stability improvements from recent versions, resulting in faster start-up and less loading time according to the company.

Further details about the major update can be found on the Komodo IDE 7 Features page. Komodo costs $382 (£241) for a single license including upgrades and support; a $50 discount is available until 15 March 2012. The open source version, Komodo Edit 7, does not contain debugging functions for Node.js and lacks the commercial product's code profiling features, regular expression debugger and source code control integration.
