"ActiveState, a leading provider of Internet programming software, and Netscape Communications, a subsidiary of America Online, announced today an agreement to collaborate on the Mozilla project, the open-source initiative founded by Netscape."

"JavaScript will join Perl and Python as supported languages in ActiveState's powerful Komodo integrated development environment. This will allow Web developers to edit, run and debug their JavaScript programs in a professional-class development tool fully oriented to the Web, while maintaining a close integration with the browser. In turn, Perl and Python will join JavaScript as programming languages in Mozilla, thereby making it easier for Open Source programmers to use the Mozilla framework, and giving Mozilla developers access to additional scripting technologies."

"Netscape is excited about the benefits our partnership with ActiveState will bring to developers everywhere," said Clayton Lewis, Technical Director of Components and Tools at Netscape Communications. "Komodo will provide JavaScript developers with a robust, fully-featured development environment, and adding Perl and Python support to Mozilla will add new power to the Mozilla development platform."
