Release Notes: This release adds support for handling Unicode filenames, environment variables, and commandline arguments to your applications while preserving backward compatibility for existing code. This Unicode support is based on UTF-8 for Unix and UTF-16 for Windows. The STRING classes can now perform a caseless string comparison of Unicode characters. The Eiffel Information System has been improved. Various bugfixes and improvements have been made.

Release Notes: This release adds a new Eiffel Web framework, improves the SCOOP implementation to allow more running processors, adds support for GTK 3.4 and its HTML5 backend, improves the Eiffel Information System tool, and adds various bugfixes and improvements.

Release Notes: This release contains major improvements in the areas of concurrency (via the SCOOP technology) and void-safety by making it easier to migrate to void-safe code. In addition, it has many small improvements to make EiffelStudio easy to use includes more and more external contributions.

Release Notes: This release candidate for EiffelStudio 6.8 which includes the following new features: SCOOP (Simple Concurrent Object-Oriented Programming technology), the ability to attach a running process to the EiffelStudio debugger, an improved EiffelStore library and MySQL handle, and various compiler and EiffelStudio bugfixes.

Release Notes: This is the first beta release of EiffelStudio 6.8. This brings support for SCOOP (Simple Concurrent Object-Oriented Programming) for Windows and Linux platforms; support for other platforms will follow. The current implementation is only for frozen and melted code; finalization support will come soon. Various refresh and resizing issues have been fixed in EiffelVision for Windows. Graphical libraries have been improved to accept IMMUTABLE_STRING_XX as input without having to perform a conversion. Support has been added for OpenBSD on 64-bit platforms. Various compiler bugs were fixed.

Release Notes: The highlights of this release are Unicode support at the class text level, i.e. one can write a Unicode manifest string or a Unicode comment, support for GCC as a backend C compiler on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, and bugfixes in the area of qualified anchored types, incrementality, once per object.

Release Notes: This is the release candidate of EiffelStudio 6.7. It solves some incrementality issues when using the testing facilities. Some display issues with the new across construct were solved. An encoding issue in the Mac version was fixed that prevented the proper display of C compilation.

Release Notes: This is the beta release of the forthcoming 6.7 release. Many incrementality bugs have been fixed. Some issues were fixed with the new Eiffel tracing mechanism related to the GC, because variables were not always protected. Support for Unicode was improved, especially for saving files.

Release Notes: This is the final 6.5 release. Various regression bugs found in the release candidate were fixed in the compiler, runtime, AutoTest, and the libraries.

Release Notes: This is a major bugfix release (about 200 bugs have been fixed since the last intermediate release). In addition, the "+" operator has been added to READABLE_STRING_GENERAL. The need for wel_hook.dll for pick and drop has been removed in all vision2 applications.
