Toolbox items can be distributed to other Komodo users. Komodo Edit 4.0 also allows users to easily extend its architecture, with support for adding advanced capabilities through Firefox-style .xpi extensions.

Additionally, ActiveState announced the release of Komodo IDE 4.0, the first unified workspace for end-to-end development of dynamic web applications.
