INTERSOLV ANNOUNCES PVCS SERIES FOR SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT, VERSION 5.0

 INTERSOLV ANNOUNCES PVCS SERIES FOR SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION
 MANAGEMENT, VERSION 5.0


Execution Speed and Memory Use Enhanced; New Developers Toolkit
 Allows Direct Access from Within Applications; Promotion Models
 Provide Custom Development Hierarchies
 ROCKVILLE, Md., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- INTERSOLV (NASDAQ-NMS: ISLI) today announced the general availability of the PVCS Series for Configuration Management, Version 5.0. PVCS 5.0 brings complete audit and control capabilities to developers in heterogeneous workstation and LAN environments, and offers direct links to MVS host library managers.
 PVCS 5.0 improves execution speed and memory use, and further integrates PVCS Version Manager and Configuration Builder services. Enhancements include: PVCS Developers Toolkit (DTK), an Application Programming Interface (API) that opens PVCS to direct access from applications software; promotion models, which let users define custom development hierarchies; and a graphical user interface (GUI) for OS/2 Presentation Manager, Windows, and OSF Motif users.
 The PVCS Product Series includes several components: PVCS Version Manager, PVCS Configuration Builder, the new PVCS Developers Toolkit, PVCS Production Gateway, the new PVCS LAN Library Gateway, and the PVCS Professional Editor. Built on a modular architecture, the components operate seamlessly across MS-DOS, OS/2, LANs, and many UNIX platforms, including System V/386, System V for Intel 80x86 and AIX.
 PVCS is the market leader in software configuration management -- nine of the 10 top software companies and 438 of the Fortune 500 use PVCS to manage their software development efforts. INTERSOLV is an active member of the IBM International Alliance for the AD/Cycle framework. PVCS LAN Library Gateway, PVCS Version Manager, PVCS Configuration Builder and PVCS WSP/2 Interface have been selected for IBM's AD/Cycle LAN Library software configuration management solution.
 PVCS Version Manager controls the update, archiving and promotion of development objects. New file locking features enable concurrent access to objects, and branching and merging techniques for parallel development.
 PVCS Configuration Builder automates the building of complex software applications by tracking their components and invoking rules for their compilation. Users can now "footprint" objects with custom identification codes, following any classification scheme they choose. This means that any binary file can be explicitly read by PVCS to the field level. Version 5.0 also includes new, simplified commands for Build Scripts. The Build Script is written once -- the system ensures that the correct versions and releases for all modules are used to compile the specified applications.
 The new PVCS Developers Toolkit lets developers invoke the services to PVCS Version Manager and PVCS Configuration Builder directly from their applications. This provides full PVCS control to organizations that have built proprietary development environments, and provides the opportunity to include PVCS functionality into any production application with minimal programming. Microsoft and Micro Focus workbenches are already fully supported.
 PVCS Production Gateway and LAN Library Gateway synchronize development objects in distributed environments through bi- directional LAN-MVS mainframe links. PVCS Production Gateway coordinates turnover to host-based library management and code control services, including CA-LIBRARIAN, CA-PANVALET, ENDEVOR/MVS, and IBM's Software Configuration and Library Manager (SCLM) and PDS. The new PVCS LAN Library Gateway is a direct link between PVCS on LANs and IBM's mainframe-based SCLM, via IBM's Workstation Platform/2 (WSP/2) Host Adapters.
 "This newest release of PVCS was designed to accommodate features developers have been asking for, including the Developers Toolkit, promotion models and a graphical user interface," said John Treacy, INTERSOLV's director of product management for the PVCS Series. "Our Early Release Program users have confirmed that the enhancements we've added dramatically increase the performance and usefulness of PVCS."
 PVCS Series 5.0 products are available immediately. PVCS products are priced on a per user basis, with quantity discounts available. The single copy price for PVCS Configuration Builder is $300, PVCS Version Manager is priced at $600, and PVCS Developers Toolkit is $1,500.
