Wednesday, February 21, 2007; 06:25 AM

ActiveState's free multi-language editor for dynamic languages, Komodo Edit 4.0, was released last week. The company said tens of thousands of users already downloaded the Komodo Edit 4.0 beta announced four weeks ago to positive pre-release reviews.

Based on the award-winning Komodo IDE 4.0, Komodo Edit 4.0 is a free, feature-rich editor for the full range of Komodo-supported dynamic languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Tcl) and platforms (Linux, Mac, OS X, and Windows). Like Komodo IDE 4.0, Komodo Edit 4.0 also supports client-side languages and Ajax technologies, including JavaScript, CSS,  HTML, and XML. It is available on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

Komodo Edit 4.0 allows users to easily extend its architecture, with support for adding advanced capabilities through Firefox-style .xpi extensions. The ActiveState community site hosts user forums and FAQs, as well as resources for creating and sharing extensions.

Other features include a project manager for flexible organization of all project elements, and the Toolbox, for storing configurable "Run"commands, macros, code snippets, URLs, Live and Virtual Folders, templates, menus, toolbars and remote files. Background syntax checking and syntax coloring catch errors immediately, while AutoComplete and CallTips guide developers as they code.
