Appcelerator Buys Aptana
Jeff Haynie, Appcelerator's CEO, explains how Titanium works:
Fore more information, take a look at this InfoQ interview with Matt Quinlan, Vice President of Community Development at Appcelerator.
Considering all the programming languages Appcelerator supports, Aptana is a perfect match with their IDEs for the Web, Ruby, and Python. Aptana's Studio 3 has been in beta for over half a year and InfoQ talked to Trish Ridgway from Appcelerator to learn more about the future of Aptana Studio:
We are on target to release a refresh of Aptana Studio 3 Beta within the next 2 weeks and we are targeting a General Availability release of Studio 3.0 during Q1 2011.
InfoQ: Paul Colton, CEO of Aptana, mentioned that they "have subsumed RadRails [..] as well as Pydev [..] into a singular product". Does this mean that the two IDEs are based on a common infrastructure for dynamic languages, or is the support for the two languages still two completely separate entities?
InfoQ: Support for PHP has also been re-introduced, are there plans to support even more languages?
More details on the acquisition can be found in the Appcelerator announcement.
