ActiveState, the open source languages company, announced today the release of Komodo IDE 10.2. In this newest release, Komodo IDE now integrates with Slack, the leading team communication tool, and also adds support for Yarn, a new package manager for Node.js. Komodo 10.2 also provides improved unit testing, as well as additional language support for Python, Perl, Go, PHP, Node.js and Ruby.


"Over the past ten years, Komodo has been downloaded over 7 million times. That's why giving developers the tools and functionality needed to make their jobs easier has always been important when choosing which new features to include," said Tom Radcliffe, ActiveState Director of Engineering. "With this new release, we've given Komodo IDE developers using Slack an easier way to share files and snippets. We've also added support for Yarn -- as an alternative to the existing support for npm -- which gives Node.js developers better performance and reliability."

ActiveState's 2016 Open Source Survey found that almost half of the respondents were using test driven development (TDD). In response, ActiveState has rebuilt the unit testing functionality in Komodo IDE. It now offers additional framework support for languages such as Python, Perl, Go, PHP, Node.js and Ruby, as well as features to run, debug and report on unit tests more efficiently.

Last month, it was announced that Komodo IDE would be included for free when users purchased a Business Edition license of an ActiveState language distribution, and Enterprise Edition purchasers would receive a complimentary Komodo IDE 5-pack. As part of the direction to a more unified product stack, Komodo IDE 10.2 supports the latest version of Ruby on Rails and Tcl 8.6, in addition to its unit testing improvements.
