Again, note that Komodo comes in two different flavours:
1) Komodo Edit - completely free and fully open-source editor,
offering smart code completions, syntax checking, code colorizing,
sophisticated editing and more.

interactive shells, code browsing, source code control, database
integration, unit testing, regular expression tools and more.
Try out Komodo 7 and let me know what you think. We really appreciate
the support and feedback!
