Posted on in Categories Cincom, Cincom Smalltalk


We are pleased to announce to our valued customers and partners the current version of Cincom Smalltalk™. This release includes the releases of Cincom ObjectStudio 9.2 and Cincom VisualWorks 9.2.

Cincom is the market leader in commercial Smalltalk. Cincom Smalltalk enhances the value and ease-of-use of tools for enterprise-level client and web applications. Developers looking for custom Windows® applications will find ObjectStudio as the ideal choice. When cross-platform custom application development is required, VisualWorks is the perfect solution. 

The Cincom Smalltalk Foundation and the core libraries are shared by ObjectStudio and VisualWorks. This means that foundation enhancements benefit both products. It is worth noting that beginning with release 9.0, ObjectStudio and VisualWorks now share a release number. Customers and Cincom can discuss, compare and track both products because they share a foundation of work.
