"ActiveState, a leader in open source programming tools, today at Microsoft Tech Ed 2001, announced the first release of Visual Perl, Visual Python and Visual XSLT for Beta 2 of Microsoft Visual Studio.NET. These solutions allow developers to edit, debug and run programs written in Perl, Python and XSLT in the Visual Studio.NET IDE.

"Our participation in the Visual Studio Integration Program enables us to bring the advanced editing and testing environment of Visual Studio .NET to our customers," said Dick Hardt, Founder & CEO, ActiveState. "A chief benefit of this integration for customers is in productivity advances. For example, moving from a text editor to a visual environment in programming is akin to the advances of moving from Notepad to Word in word processing."
