When you add packages to a Python project using the State Tool, you now have the option to specify the package requirements for the project in a requirements.txt file using the new state packages import command.
When you create or update a Python project on the platform, you now have the option to provide the package and version requirements for the project in requirements.txt file format. You can copy and paste the contents of an existing requirements text file, or type in your project’s requirements.
When you create a new custom project, or update an existing one, you can now specify macOS as a platform to build your language runtime for. When your build completes, you can download your custom runtime as a standard package installer.
The State Tool is compatible with several popular continuous integration/continuous deployment tools to enable the setup of more secure, consistent, and up-to-date CI/CD pipelines.
A maintenance release for Komodo 12 that resolves issues with State Tool integration identified in version 12.0, including a fix for login issues encountered due to State Tool failures. For the complete list of fixes, see Komodo 12 release notes.
The State Tool, the command line utility for the ActiveState Platform, includes a new package command you can use to manage packages in your projects. You can view, add, remove, and change the packages included in your project, and update your project on the Platform.
You can now choose from over 20,000 unique packages/versions to add to your custom Python 2 and Python 3 projects.
