Developer tools vendor ActiveState is out with a major new release of their Komodo IDE. Komodo 7 is the first big update to the IDE since Komodo 6 was released in October of 2010.
“The real time collaboration is basically Google Docs for code,” Jeff Hobbs, director of engineering at ActiveState, told InternetNews.com. “So you get all the fancy features of the IDE, including syntax highlighting, code completion and you can have multiple people collaborating on that at the same time.”
The way the collaboration works on the back-end is by way of an ActiveState cloud intermediary, with all the connection done over HTTPS and encrypted.
