Introducing Cincom Smalltalk Version 9.2
We are proud to introduce to you, Cincom Smalltalk Version 9.2. Version 9.x began our path to move the products closer together, with the goal of a future single product and the intent to offer the best of both for our customers. This would allow, for example, VisualWorks users to use the native windows widgets and the modeling and mapping tools of ObjectStudio and would give ObjectStudio users the potential to move applications cross-platform.
Version 9.x continues to improve and enhance infrastructures, such as in GUI and TLS/Security areas, to allow continued future improvements while keeping API capability.
The types of changes made to the products fall into a few categories:
Required changes – Operating system changes, OS API changes, OS compiler changes, Modern TLS and Security standards
Customer needs and requirements – Customer feedback may indicate a new feature or product improvement that’s beneficial to many customers.
Infrastructure work – Enhancing current infrastructure to support new features
We know our customers have a large investment in developed applications, and we focus on providing improvements with compatibility.
