Komodo IDE/Edit 9.x Release Notes

These Release Notes cover what's new, detailed changes and bug fixes and known issues for Komodo IDE and Komodo Edit.

What's New in Komodo IDE/Edit

9.3.2

Maintenance release, see detailed changes below.

9.3.1

Maintenance release, see detailed changes below.

9.3

  • Documentation browser (IDE): Allows you to quickly navigate the documentation for our codeintel supported languages. Giving you quick access to basic documentation, with shortcuts to online documentation and contextual actions (insert snippet). This is entirely keyboard driven through Commando.

  • Run Code In-Line (IDE): Hit a shortcut to run the current the current file using the configured interpreter, then quickly review its results. Useful to quickly test bits of code. This works on unsaved files as well as selections (ie. run only the selected text).

  • Quick Bookmarks: Quickly place numeric bookmarks and go to them, allowing you to use bookmarks as more than just reminders. Hit Ctrl+Shift+number to place a quick bookmark, then hit Ctrl+number to go to that bookmark.

  • Console Widget: The new Console pane allows you to interact with the Komodo runtime much in the same way as you would use your browser developer tools console to interact with a website. This is especially useful for developers wanting to customize their Komodo experience.

  • CSS Auto-Completions: CSS, LESS, and SCSS files now support auto-completions and code browsing. This will also work when editing HTML and using CSS classes or ID's in your markup. With the 9.3.0 release this only works for CSS files living at the same or a lower level as the HTML file, we will very soon be supporting this project wide.

  • Auto-Wrap Delimiters: When pressing a delimiter (eg. double quotes) while having text selected the text will be wrapped by that delimiter. Delimiters are configurable from your Preferences and can be disabled entirely.

  • Auto multi-caret for HTML/XML tags: When selecting an HTML (XML) tag the corresponding start/end tag will also be selected, allowing you to change the start and end tag without having to select each individually.

  • Elastic Tabstops: Komodo now supports Elastic Tabstops. Since this is intended only for files that use tab characters for indentation it is disabled by default. You can enable it under Indentation Preferences.

  • In-line Syntax Checking: When syntax errors/warnings occur a small notification popup will show at the bottom right corner of your editor window.

  • Package Manager 2.0: You can now fully manage your packages via Komodo, ie. uninstall, update, etc. (the previous version only allowed you to install). Advanced functionality currently only works for addons, skins, and languages.

  • Enhanced Multi-Caret Mode: Multiple caret mode is now much more flexible and useful, allowing for more complex actions than before. You can also now set multi-carets with ctrl+click.

  • Embedded Find/Replace: Find and replace has been significantly overhauled and is now part of the editor (rather than a popup dialog).

  • Multiple Find Result Tabs: Every search now opens in its own result tab, you are no longer limited to 2 tabs. Find results now also show a new input field that allow you to search again with the same input but a different search pattern.

  • Macros renamed to Userscripts: Toolbox Macros have been renamed to Userscripts. Macros also still exist but only through the toolbar or menu interface. When you save them to your toolbox they effectively become userscripts.

  • Quick Start on Tabs: When opening a new tab you now get a view that lets you pick what to do with the tab; eg. create a new file, open files, new file from template, recent file, etc.

  • New & Improved File Icons: The language icons have been updated to be more distinctive and less generic looking.

  • Commando has gotten a visual overhaul: More lightweight, no borders or gradients. Commando now feels as lightweight as it is.

  • Tons and tons of UX improvements: An ongoing effort to make Komodo the most user friendly IDE out there by many miles.

9.2.1

Maintenance release, see detailed changes below.

9.2

  • Docker and Vagrant Integration (IDE only) - You can now interact with Docker and Vagrant using Commando (under Commando > Shell).
  • Collaboration Overhaul (IDE only) - Collaboration has been given a significant face-lift and is now a joy to work with! Code better with your teams with our updated collab tool.
  • Real-time (in-line) spell checking (IDE Only) - Komodo will now check your code for spelling errors in real-time, and allow you to easily address spelling errors right within the editor.
  • Package Installer - We are introducing an all new way to install addons, color schemes, skins, keybindings, languages, etc. Simply by using Commando, you can now install all your favourite "Packages" (previously called "Resources" or "Extensions").
  • EditorConfig Integration (see issue #271) - Komodo now checks for .editorconfig files in your path, you can read more about this here.
  • Focus Mode (aka Distraction Free Mode) - Clean up your IDE: easily hide non-essential UI with a keystroke, you can read more about this here.
  • CSS3 Autocompletions - We already supported a ton of CSS3 in our autocompletions, but thanks to Defman we now support all of CSS3.
  • Crisper UI - Particularly when using dark color schemes, the UI could feel a little bit "fuzzy" in the past, but no longer is that the case!
  • A boatload of Commando enhancements and fixes (see below)

9.1

  • Package Manager integration: You can now easily install and uninstall packages using Commando, as well as perform all sorts of specific package manager actions. Support for the following package managers (IDE only):
    • Bower (web front-end)
    • NPM (Node.JS)
    • Composer (PHP)
    • Gem (Ruby)
    • PIP (Python)
    • CPAN (Perl)
    • PyPM (Python)
    • PPM (Perl)
  • Scope Shell: Commando has a new "shell" scope which allows you to easily run commands with minimum interruption from your workflow (IDE only).
  • Workspace management has been significantly improved. Save your UI state and opened files and restore them whenever you'd like (IDE only).
  • Select Commando (Go to Anything) results by pressing ALT+number.
  • The Commando user experience has had significant usability improvements. Most notably when starting Commando you will now be presented with a convenient list of scopes that you can use to narrow down your search results.
  • Other Mentionables
    • Color Schemes: Use foreground color for caret color - fixes #75.
    • Commando: Don't preserve query when navigating backwards.
    • Commando: Escape now clears the current search.
    • SDK: Added the "shell" SDK, allowing you to easily run shell commands.
    • UI: Improved scrollbar contrast on dark color schemes.
    • UI: "Ugly border" showing around notifications on windows - fixes #108.
    • CodeIntel: Improve PHPDoc tooltip legibility - contributed by Defman - PR #225

9.0

  • Track Changes: The editor has gained a new left margin, which highlights unsaved changes, as well as any uncommitted SCC changes. Clicking on the margin will show a diff dialog of the changes, and you can also revert these individual changes.

  • Markdown Viewer: When a markdown file is open in Komodo, you'll be able to easily HTML preview that markdown with a click of a button. The Komodo markdown viewer uses GitHub markdown styling.

  • Go Lang: Initial support for the Go programming language has been added to Komodo. It provides syntax coloring, code folding, syntax checking (linting) and code intelligence with completions, calltips, outline and goto definition.

  • Commando: This popup dialog is the combined successor of the "Fast Open" dialog and "Invoke Tool" dialog. Commando provides the following search tools and features:

    • fuzzy matching
    • string match highlighting in the results panel
    • find any file under a particular folder
    • tool (macro, run command, snippet, ...) search
    • bookmark integration
    • shortcuts (go-tool) integration
    • custom category filtering Commando also comes with an easy to use API so that you can easily add your own custom search "scopes".
  • Kopy.io: This allows you to easily share snippets of code with other people (like a pastebin) directly from Komodo. Simple make a text selection and right-click and use the Share Code via Kopy.io. Even better is that Kopy.io supports client side encryption, so you can make those shared pastes more secure.

  • Notifications: Messages shown to the user now appear in a separate popup panel that overlays the main Komodo editor window (previously they appeared in the Komodo statusbar). There are notification preferences which allows you to control which messages get displayed in the popup panel.

  • Icons: Most of the Komodo UI icons have been updated - here is a list of the most noticeable icon changes:

    • file icons
    • language icons
    • places icons
    • toolbox icons
    • preference page
    • code intelligence icons (completions, sections list, code browser)
  • Color Schemes: We've changed all the default Komodo color schemes. All schemes included in Komodo are now Base16, that is, they are based on a set of 16 different base colors, which are re-used by different parts of the scheme. You can also tweak the editor line height spacing now directly in the color scheme preferences page.

  • Menu Bar: The Komodo main menu bar is now hidden by default (Windows and Linux. You can use the Alt key to toggle the menu visibility. Whilst the top-level menu is hidden, the unified button menu will be visible in the toolbar. You can also control menu visibility through the View > Toolbars menu.

  • PHP 5.6 Support: We've added support for PHP 5.6, with a new Xdebug module (for PHP debugging and Code Profiling), updates for keyword changes and updates to code intelligence to provide the latest API data for PHP 5.6.

  • Python PEP 8 Syntax Checking: PEP 8 syntax checking has been added. You can turn it on by visiting the Python Syntax Checking preferences. For those that don't know - PEP 8 is the official style guide for Python code.

  • CSS Code Formatting: Komodo now includes a CSS code formatter - so you can keep your CSS looking beautifully structured. We're using a JavaScript CSS Beautify library from Sencha Labs.

  • Komodo Developer APIs: We've been overhauling the Komodo APIs, to make it easier to load and access the methods inside of Komodo. We're now making use of CommonJS (aka Node.js) require() calls to load individual modules - you can see the full list of supported modules in the sdk directory. Examples and more information can be found in the Komodo wiki. We've also added convenient console.log() and friends support - the messages show up in the Komodo Notifications pane.

  • Performance: Various performance tweaks were made to Komodo to improve the editing performance, as well as improving the search speed, syntax checking times and general responsiveness of Komodo.

  • Other Mentionables

    • Statusbar has moved to be above the bottom pane (attached to the editor view)
    • CSS code formatter was added
    • Preference page now has a simple and advanced mode
    • Startpage has been removed - instead a Quick Launch page is shown when no views are opened

Known Issues

To view the status of outstanding Komodo issues, including those that have been fixed in this release, or to add comments or additional issues, please visit the Komodo Bug Database.

Installation & Upgrade

  • The Komodo installer requires up to 300 MB in your TMP directory (as indicated by the value of your 'TMP' environment variable) during installation, even if you plan to install Komodo to another drive. If you do not have the required space on this drive, manually set the 'TMP' environment variable to another directory with sufficient space. Ensure that you have enough space, temporarily, for installation. (Bug 7057)
  • If you try to install Komodo on Windows and the MSI install fails with error 2355, your MSI file is corrupt. Please download Komodo again and re-run the MSI install. (Bug 7405)

Startup and Shutdown

  • Slow startup may occur if the PATH environment contains networked drives
  • Slow performance on NoMachine (remote desktop) has been reported - bug 93841.
  • On Windows, Direct Folders application can cause shutdown hangs
  • bug 101357.

Editing

  • By design, Komodo does not attempt Replace in Files operations on unknown file types. However, file association preferences can be used to associate a user-defined extension with a language category (e.g. "Text") which then enables replacements for that file type.
  • While autocomplete on many of the modules in the Python PyWin32 packages works, Komodo's PyWin32 API catalog currently does not have information for: pythoncom and the binary sub-modules of win32com.
  • The macro recorder will record events that it cannot handle, such as the opening of dialogs. The only dialog that can be opened via a macro is the Find dialog; other dialogs will cause the macro to stop.
  • Languages that are read right to left (e.g. Middle Eastern languages like Arabic) are not supported. All Latin, Cyrillic and Far East languages are fully supported. (Bug 75477)
  • On slow networks, users may notice performance degradation when editing files on network machines. Performance can be improved by disabling the Komodo function that checks if files on disk have changed. Use the Editor Preferences to disable this feature. (Bug 18297)
  • On Linux, GTK2 hard codes 'Ctrl'+'Shift' to use international input. Therefore, all key bindings involving 'Ctrl'+'Shift'+ (any valid hexadecimal character) do not work in Komodo. A workaround is to start Komodo with the command: export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim; ./komodo'. Otherwise, key bindings of this kind must be changed. (Bug 38205)
  • When editing a code comment in Komodo you may use <Shift+Enter> to start a new line within the comment -- the comment prefix is added automatically. Komodo may fail to properly add the comment prefix if many new lines are added quickly with repeated <Shift+Enter> presses. (Bug 38658)

Debugging

  • PHP: The xdebug.remote_autostart option will interfere with local debugging configuration in Komodo if it is enabled. If you need this option enabled for remote debugging, set the Path to alternate PHP configuration file under Preferences|Languages|PHP to point to a copy of php.ini without this option.
  • PHP: A non-empty doc_root setting in php.ini causes a 'No input file specified' error when starting a local debugging session with CGI emulation. The Web Developer Suite 2.0 package and others use this setting, and it is copied into the debugging version of php.ini during PHP auto-config. Comment this setting out in the file specified in 'Preferences|Languages|PHP|Path to alternate PHP configuration file' to avoid this problem.
  • The Perl debugger uses alarm() internally. This can conflict with some Perl frameworks and modules (such as POE) which use alarm() as well. To work around this problem, add alarm=0 to the PERLDB_OPTS environment variable (in the Environment tab of the Debugger Options) which stops the debugger from using alarm(). With this work-around in place, the Break Now button and menu item will not work in debugging sessions.
  • Python debugging with IronPython does not currently work as there is no support for Python debugging hooks in IronPython.
  • In PerlApp executables, it is now possible to step into loaded modules, but not to set breakpoints in them.
  • If the debug listener (Debug|Listen for Debugger Connections) is off, multithreaded applications may not run or debug as expected. Only the main thread operates through the debugger. To debug multithreaded applications, turn on debug listening prior to debugging. (Debug listening is turned on by default.) (Bug 32776)
  • PHP configurations that use Zend Extensions (such as PHP Accelerator) are not compatible with the Komodo PHP debugger. (Bug 21890)
  • Due to the way the core Perl interpreter works, it is not possible to step over "require" statements. (Bug 18776)
  • You cannot debug 'freestanding' executables created with the PDK in Komodo. Instead, build a 'dependant' executable, which requires a local install of ActivePerl.
  • The variable watcher does not work when debugging _\\machine\d$\path\to\perl_script.pl_. It does work when opening the same file via a UNC path that does not include a '$' character. (Bug 19558)
  • When debugging remote applications, Komodo may fail if the remote process does not have valid stdout and stderr handles. GUI applications, such as those started with "wperl.exe" or "pythonw.exe", or those using the Pythonwin or wxPython frameworks, or those with certain embedded applications, can have invalid stdout and stderr handles. Until we resolve this issue, try to run and debug your remote program under perl.exe or python.exe.
  • Komodo debugging requires TCP/IP to be enabled, even if you are debugging scripts locally. TCP/IP is enabled by default on most systems. On systems with firewalls installed, the debugger may fail if the firewall is not configured to allow Komodo to listen for connections. On Windows, you may see a "Windows Security Alert" dialog asking if you want to allow Komodo to listen for connections, you will need to unblock Komodo. (Bug 21684)
  • When debugging a GUI script in Komodo, adding a "watched variable" when not stopped at a breakpoint can cause Komodo to hang. You must manually terminate the script being debugged to stop Komodo from hanging. The problem occurs because the GUI script, while in its message loop, does not respond to Komodo's request for the variable value. (Bug 23516)
  • If the Komodo debugger is configured to use a specific port, when Komodo is shut down, the port is sometimes not immediately released. If Komodo is restarted before the port is released by the operating system, a message is displayed advising that the system is unable to bind that port. As a workaround, we suggest configuring port 0 as the Komodo debugging port and using the debugger proxy for remote debugging. (Bug 32821)
  • Breaking into a running Perl script can only occur while crossing sub boundaries in the Perl code, as that's currently the only chance the Perl debugger has to check to see if the IDE has sent the break command. (Bug 35611)
  • When debugging Perl, if you set a breakpoint on the while statement, the debugger stops on the breakpoint only once, namely before the first pass through the loop. This is a limitation in the Perl interpreter. (Bug 34866)
  • The Perl debugger cannot trap fatal runtime errors. Users can accomplish this in their code by wrapping problematic code in an eval block, and then testing for an exception. (Bug 33855)
  • Komodo does not provide proper source debugging in Python exec and eval statements. This is a limitation of Python's interpreter. (Bug 40336)
  • When debugging PHP on a remote Linux machine from a local Windows machine, the debugging option "Try to find files on the local system when remote debugging" has no effect. This is due to differences in Unix and Win32 file paths. (Bug 39137)
  • When debugging Python, Komodo does not permit you to set local variables in the interactive shell. However, you can edit those values from the program's variable viewers, such as the Watch and Locals panes on the Debug tab. (Bug 36794)
  • When debugging PHP scripts on Komodo with CGI emulation, you may need to change the setting for cgi.force_redirect in the php.ini file. You may also need to set an environment variable in the Debugger Options dialog box: "REDIRECT_STATUS=200 OK". These settings vary depending on your system and the configuration of PHP. (Bug 35021)
  • When Debugging PHP, the HTML pane of the Output tab does not refresh automatically. To refresh the contents of this pane, click the "Reload HTML view" button on the Output tab. (Bug 36999)
  • Komodo supports full Unicode debugging with Perl 5.8. Although Perl 5.6 can be used for debugging programs with single-byte encodings (e.g. cp1251), it is recommended that programmers with multi-byte character sets upgrade to Perl 5.8.5 or better. (Bug 36760)
  • When debugging Python, if you launch the debugger from a directory containing a module with the same name as one of the modules used by the debugger, the wrong file is used. For example, if you have a file named logging.py in the directory where the debugger is launched, the debugger will fail. (Bug 36783)
  • When stepping through Perl files, the Komodo debugger displays the wrong print results in the Locals window of the Debug tab. This is because Perl provides only one iterator for each collection variable. The Komodo debugger must iterate through a hash or an array in order to display the values in Komodo. A workaround is to display the Watch pane instead of the Locals pane, and type the names of the expressions that you want to view. (Bug 33668)
  • As of Komodo 5.0, the Perl debugger emits numeric hash keys with embedded underscores. For example, a hash key of '123456789' now appears in the variables tabs as '123456789'.
  • Breakpoints don't work in files with symlinks in their path. The debugger engine calculates whether to break based on the actual file path. To work around this limitation, load the file in Komodo using the real path, or create a hard link (e.g. on Linux, use 'ln' without the '-s' option). (Bug 79147)

Interactive Shell

  • The interactive shell does not initialize properly when invoked while the Command Output tab has focus. To avoid this, switch focus to another tab or sidebar before starting the interactive shell.
  • Perl: Only pattern variables $1 .. $9 are preserved across each query. (Bug 34528)
  • Python: The getpass package requires the use of a tty on UNIX systems. Komodo does not provide a tty in its interactive shell so getpass will issue a warning. (Bug 34259)

Source Code Control

  • The SCC Checkout wizard, SCC Commit and SCC Push features does not correctly handle password authentication. SCC commands requiring password authentication should be done at the command line, or be setup to use password-less authentication mechanisms.
  • Komodo's integration with the Perforce commit/submit command cannot commit files that are not in the default changelist. These files must be submitted via an external interface (e.g. p4, P4Win). Note that any files checked out inside Komodo are in the default changelist, so this limitation should only apply to users who already use an external interface to their Perforce repository. (Bug 27070)
  • If the Perforce connection cannot be established, checking the status of files in a Perforce repository may hang the Komodo Source Code Control system. (Bug 35058)
  • If you are using CVS Source Code Control, note that the very first time you log in to a repository, cvs.exe fails to create the .cvspass file correctly and will return an error. Repeat the command to login a second time and correctly generate the file. This is a CVS bug. (Bug 20353)

Mac OS X

  • If you have two drives with the same name, and you use the file open dialog in a Mozilla application, the directory menu (top middle of dialog) may crash when clicked. To avoid this, rename one of the hard drives.
  • New Custom Menus created in a Project or in the Toolbox will not appear until Komodo has been restarted.
  • Throughout the Komodo documentation there are references to key bindings that use the 'Cmd' key. This key may be better known to OS X users as the 'Command' key. (Bug 41959)
  • Display of text during editing ("painting") may sometimes be slow or pause momentarily.
  • Certain UI elements stop working after changing key bindings. Restarting Komodo fixes this. (Bug 38683)
  • When saving a file, Komodo does not set file information (type and creator) for the OS X Finder to know that Komodo created the file. (Bug 38745)
  • Breakpoints cannot be removed when debugging XSLT scripts. (Bug 40072)
  • PHP debugging may not work with the PHP build distributed with OS X because it does not load external modules. To use PHP debugging on OS X, build PHP from source or download a binary from http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php

(Bug 39901) * Application menu items that have multi-key key bindings will not show their key bindings in a pop-up tool tip on OS X. This is a limitation in OS X. * Context menus may not display unless you hold down the mouse button for a period of time. This is because the Komodo editor is implemented in Mozilla as a plugin, and it does not access the appropriate context menu event to handle this behavior properly without interfering with other mouse events (for example, drag and drop). (Bug 41216) * Due to a limitation in the Mozilla code base, key bindings for the Next File and Previous File options on the Window menu are not displayed next to the menu items. The key bindings are 'Cmd'+'PageDown' to view the next file and 'Cmd'+'PageUp' to view the previous file. (Bug 40716)

Linux

  • The Fonts and Colors pane in the Preferences dialog box displays the same list of fonts in both the Fixed and Proportional lists. There is no programmatic way to identify whether a font is proportional or not on GTK; therefore, users must know the properties of the individual fonts when modifying these values. (Bug 27206)
  • Key bindings defined in the window manager (such as KDE) take precedence over Komodo key bindings. In the case of conflicts, you must either change the Komodo key bindings or the window manager key bindings. (Bug 30926)
  • You cannot move an existing Komodo installation to a new directory. You must uninstall Komodo from the existing location and reinstall it in the new location. (Bug 19478)
  • Using colon-separated include paths in the Perl shebang line causes a parse failure on some versions of Perl. Instead of using "/usr/bin/perl -cwT -I/path1:/path2 yourscript.pl", try using multiple include arguments such as "/usr/bin/perl -cwT -I/path1 -I/path2 yourscript.pl"

    (Bug 33524)

  • Komodo may not start up correctly on some Linux systems if C++ compatibility libraries have not been installed. On Fedora and Red Hat systems, install the "compat-libstdc++" package. On SuSE, install the "compat" package. On Gentoo, as root, run emerge lib-compat. This is not thought to be a problem on Debian systems. (Bug 36244)

  • Komodo is not compatible with Kubuntu 11.04 or OpenSuSE 11.4. Workaround in bug (Bug 90985).

Other

  • On Windows, some interactive commands may not work properly when run from the Command Output tab of the Output Pane. You must run these commands in a separate shell. (Bug 23176)
  • Macros will not record certain commands, including (but possibly not limited to) 'Ctrl'+'Shift'+'B'|'R'|'E'|'D' (toggle toolbars or button text), 'Ctrl'+'Shift'+'N' (new default file), and View as Language menu items.
  • When you schedule a new file to be added using CVS, CVS will not permit you to remove the file from the repository using the "revert changes" command. (Bug 27192)
  • The Open field in the Open/Find Toolbar does not automatically display a drop-down list of directories when an UNC path is typed. Currently, the list is only displayed when a the path includes a subdirectory. (Bug 29011)
  • When creating a "diff" in Komodo (Tools|Compare Files), the line endings of the files are normalized to Unix style line endings. Lines in files that have different line endings are not displayed differently in the diff (unless other differences are present), but a warning is provided to the user in the 'diff' window, or the 'no difference' dialog. (Bug 32932)
  • When adding new key bindings via the Preferences dialog box, Komodo displays a message indicating that the key bindings will not take effect until Komodo is restarted. However, some changes do take effect immediately.(Bug 36710)
  • If you rename a folder that was added to a custom menu, the name is changed in Komodo's Toolbox but not on the menu itself. A workaround is to move the renamed folder out and then back into the associated custom menu icon in the Toolbox. (Bug 36679)
  • A newly created custom menu is added to the Toolbox but is not immediately displayed alongside existing toolbars. Restarting Komodo causes the new toolbar to display. (Bug 40078)
