Cincom® ObjectStudio® 9.0.1 and Cincom® VisualWorks® 9.0.1 Are Here!

It is our pleasure to bring our customers and partners the current version of Cincom Smalltalk™. This version includes the releases of Cincom ObjectStudio 9.0.1 and Cincom VisualWorks 9.0.1.

Cincom is a leading provider of commercial Smalltalk. Cincom Smalltalk adds value and simplicity to application development software, web application development tools and deployment environments. ObjectStudio is an ideal solution for developing custom applications for Windows® while VisualWorks is the ideal solution for enterprise-level, multilingual, cross-platform, custom application development.

ObjectStudio and VisualWorks share the same core libraries and the Cincom Smalltalk Foundation. This means foundation improvements enhance both products. Note that starting with release 9.0, ObjectStudio and VisualWorks now share a release number. Since both products share a foundation of work, this makes it easier for customers and Cincom to discuss, compare and track.
