ActiveState Platform Gets
January 10, 2019
ActiveState Platform now has new functionality to automatically
build, certify and resolve open source languages.
The new ActiveState Platform capabilities, currently in beta, are
available to existing customers as part of their subscription.
ActiveState's Platform new capabilities in beta include:
•Ability to select any set
of packages from ActiveState's inventory to create on-demand builds
•Automated builds for
Python languages (with support for Perl and Tcl coming soon)
resolution through the automated build process
•Commit-based build history
•Integrated Python runtime
updates enhance the Platform's Python runtime verification ability
released last year and allow customers to pickup and share their
open source language builds. Users now benefit from accelerated
build times and more visibility.
The new functionality underscores ActiveState's intent to solve
challenges with polyglot environments, where many open source
languages and tech stacks co-exist and have to be regularly
maintained and vetted against language updates and security
vulnerabilities. The ActiveState Platform leverages the company's
20-year history of building language distributions for Fortune 1000
companies and millions of developers.
Bart Copeland, CEO, ActiveState, said: "Polyglot is killing the
enterprise, but it doesn't have to. We believe you should enjoy all
the benefits of many open source languages without any of the
hassles. We want to free up coder time for high-value work, enable
them to run a single command and get coding. And we want to empower
management with the visibility and controls required to give
developers the freedom to use open source tools."
