The major releases introduced a very capable auto-complete 2.0, browser improvements, supported LDAP(S), AppeX enhancements and much more in our foundation, which serves both products.

ObjectStudio 8.8 introduced a brand-new, NGUI-based launcher, with a focus on convenience and productivity.

VisualWorks 8.2 introduced, in preview, “Classic Skins” to assist application upgrades and two new preview VMs: OS X 64 and Linux PPC 64.

ObjectStudio shares a foundation library and VM as well as many of the same improvements as VisualWorks. For these new releases, over 137 action requests (ARs) and resolutions were addressed in the foundation, used by both products.
