We heard our customers: This fall you will see service-pack maintenance releases for our Cincom Smalltalk products. This release is a true maintenance update as requested by Cincom Smalltalk customers. In future release cycles we plan to have one major release annually along with service-pack online releases at regular intervals. The service-pack releases will have refinements, fixes and updates to the major releases.
I think that's a good idea - and it also fits in well with how most of the rest of the industry operates. If the service packs are easy to add updates, it'll make projects like the one I'm on now much easier to keep in synch with Cincom releases.
