Cincom Maintenance Releases – updates
In the last post/digest article we noted important changes that we are making in our releases and release process, to better meet customer requirements, based on feedback we are getting from customers (see here). The fall Cincom Smalltalk releases will be true maintenance “service pack” releases, and introduced in between major releases.
We are also experimenting with the delivery mechanisms of the maintenance releases, with full installations or in-place updates.
The fall maintenance release full releases will be: ObjectStudio 8.3.1 and VisualWorks 7.8.1.
VisualWorks will have an optional process to update a 7.8 installation. The future target will be online updateable maintenance service packs.
What is your preference for delivery? Please let us know your ideas and suggestions!
