Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

LinuxWorld San Francisco 2003

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2003

At the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo this week, ActiveState(TM) was honored with a Product Excellence Award for Komodo, the company's professional integrated development environment (IDE) for open source languages.

Named "Best Development Tool" by IDG World Expo, in conjunction with the UniForum Association, Komodo provides a powerful workspace for editing, debugging, and testing applications on Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl, XSLT, and numerous other languages.

The Product Excellence Awards recognize major areas of innovation in the Linux and open source community. Komodo was selected over products from finalists including Sun Microsystems, Zend Technologies, BUGOPOLIS, and Trolltech. PureMessage(TM), the company's anti-spam and content filtering solution, was also recognized with the "Best Sys Admin Tool" award.

"The Komodo development team works hard to ensure that Komodo runs as well on Linux as it does on Windows, and it's gratifying to see Linux users value our efforts," said David Ascher, Komodo Technical Lead, ActiveState. "Long-time Linux users are among our most valuable customers, because they realize the impact they can have on product evolution. At the same time, some of our most avid customers are ex-Windows users in search of an intuitive development environment on Linux, or cross-platform users who appreciate that Komodo looks and feels the same on all platforms. Komodo will continue to evolve to meet the individual development needs of these groups."

Komodo's key features include an advanced, language-aware editor with features such as background syntax-checking and auto-completion; an easy-to-use, yet powerful debugger; Source code control; CGI emulation; and templates. The program runs on Linux and Microsoft Windows. More information is at
