ActiveState Python, Komodo news. In this note to the Python-dev mailing list, Mark Hammond announced that ActiveState had dropped its work with Python and the Komodo development environment.

ActiveState remains committed to the Python language, and is continuing to develop Python-oriented products (including Komodo).
