For all of you web monkeys out there, there is a new release of Aptana available. Based extensively on Eclipse, Aptana has become my preferred web development environment. While the screenshots are nifty, what really caught my eye was the new Adobe AIR plugins. This allows someone experienced in web technologies to develop applications for the desktop without learning a more common application programming language like Python. Currently the plugins for Aptana are available for Linux but not the actual AIR SDK (Windows and Mac only). Hopefully this will change in the future.
