BREAKING NEWS: Cincom® ObjectStudio® 9.3 and Cincom® VisualWorks® 9.3 Are Here!


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 9.3 and Cincom VisualWorks 9.3.

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

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.
