"ActiveState, the leader in open source programming tools, announces the release of Komodo 1.0, the first Mozilla application by a third party. Komodo is a Perl and Python integrated development environment for programming using the Mozilla application framework. A full-featured, multi-language IDE, its timesaving features include integrated online help and an interactive remote debugger. Komodo also includes the only one of its kind, regular expression toolkit, for one of the most difficult technologies used in scripting languages."

"Komodo is the first commercial grade IDE for Perl and Python, and it's cross-platform as well", said Dick Hardt, Founder & CEO, ActiveState. "Mozilla's component oriented framework will allow us to easily add support for additional languages and features throughout the coming months."

"Mozilla is ideally suited for cross-platform Web-based development. This makes it a natural fit for ActiveState's powerful new IDE, Komodo," said Mitchell Baker, chief lizard wrangler at mozilla.org. "Perl, Python and JavaScript developers will find Komodo a wonderful tool for using Mozilla for Web services development."
