While having a free Komodo 1.1 around was "nice" for some, we needed to encourage people to use the current version, if for no other reason that it's much better software. Academic institutions (the main audience of the original free version) can still get Komodo for free through our educational program.

While your specific interest is in the Rx Toolkit, the new 2.0 Personal Edition is very reasonably priced and we hope that some of the other features will make it worth your while. -Matt, Product Manager, Komodo, ActiveState
