ActiveState recently stood up a new Web site specifically for Komodo IDE/Edit (which I find encouraging, as I have long felt that it wasn’t featured prominently enough of the ActiveState site) and have been tweeting quite a bit about Komodo the past few weeks (also encouraging). As part of that effort that seems focused on raising the visibility of what I have long felt to be a tremendously powerful general-purpose code IDE/Editor that isn’t horribly bloated and sluggish (yup, that’s looking at you Eclipse!), the Komodo team kicked off a promotion to give away a couple of licenses based on submitting a screenshot of your Komodo set-up.
So I did. And I won…
I am grateful for the license (and their comments about my entry). As a long-time user of Komodo (I use Edit at home, and IDE at work), I have always been impressed by both the product and the quality and level of support provided by the people behind it. And I am glad to see that ActiveState is taking an active role to raise its visibility — that seems to me to bode well for its future.
With some of the recent/upcoming changes to the CFML language from both the Railo and Adobe ColdFusion product updates, I’ll be digging back into my Komodo-CFML language extension for some updates in the coming weeks.
