Latest News ActiveState, a leading provider of developer tools and services for dynamic languages, today announced the release of ActiveState's ActivePerl, ActivePython, and ActiveTcl language distributions for Sun's Solaris 10 Operating System (OS) for SPARC, x86 and x64 systems. The release underlines ActiveState's commitment to providing developers with up-to-date scripting languages on Sun Solaris 10.

"Porting our ActivePerl, ActivePython, and ActiveTcl distributions to the Solaris 10 OS is a important step for ActiveState, as many of our customers rely heavily on Solaris," says David Ascher, ActiveState's Chief Technologist.

"We are delighted that ActiveState's industry standard distributions are now available for the Solaris 10 OS. ActiveState's timely support for our SPARC, x86 and x64 architectures is precisely what customers are looking for from our partners."

ActiveState's language distributions offer developers consistent quality-assured Perl, Python, and Tcl libraries and components across popular platforms. ActivePerl, ActivePython, and ActiveTcl are provided free to the community.
