BORLAND SHIPS BORLAND C++ 2.0 FOR OS 2; New Version Includes OWL Support and OS 2 Warp Compatibility.

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--January 9, 1995--Borland International Inc. today announced Borland C++ 2.0 for OS/2, the latest version of its professional object-oriented development system, shipped in December 1994. Borland C++ 2.0 for OS/2 provides developers with C and C++ compilers and tools for developing powerful 32-bit OS/2 Warp applications and contains ObjectWindows Library (OWL) for Presentation Manager, a version of the industry standard class library for OS/2's window environment. With OWL, developers can take applications written in 16- or 32-bit Windows and move them easily to OS/2 Warp.

"Borland C++ 2.0 now allows C++ programmers to take full advantage of OWL, a full-featured cross-platform application framework that now supports both Windows and OS/2," said Paul Gross, Borland's vice president and general manager, Languages and Client/Server Business Unit. "Software programmers who develop for a variety of platforms can now easily port their OWL applications from Windows to OS/2."

"With more that 700,000 copies sold in six weeks, OS/2 Warp is rapidly gaining momentum as a 32-bit operating system environment," said Jim Gant, IBM's vice president of Solution Developer Operations. "Borland C++ for OS/2, which now includes OWL, provides software developers with an easy pathway to develop OS/2 applications."

In addition to OWL, Borland C++ 2.0 for OS/2 includes other features that aid in application design. The Presentation Manager-hosted Integrated Development Environment (IDE) allows developers to edit, compile and debug OS/2 applications quickly; the Resource Workshop provides developers with additional tools such as bitmaps, icons, dialogs, and menus to visually create OS/2 resources; and the ObjectBrowser offers an easy-to-understand graphical display of application class hierarchies, including multiple inheritances. Borland C++ 2.0 also includes Turbo Debugger, Turbo Assembler, Runtime library source code, and OWL source code.
