Release Notes: This release bugfixes, some enhancements, and updates to the main compiler and the run-time. It also includes locking for relative files, better support for print files (write after and before advancing), and better compatibility with the 85 Standard for some indexed file I/O operations.

Release Notes: Support for inline comments, DEBUGGING lines, declaratives (preliminary), intrinsic functions (preliminary), INSPECT CONVERTING, and concatenation (preliminary) have been added to the compiler. The compiler front end and resource options have been enhanced to define the default compiler action of creating an executable or library. The compiler can also create static/shared libraries from COBOL sources directly from the command line. Finally, embedded SQL can be used with TC by using a vendor-supplied SQL pre-processor and libraries.

Release Notes: Support for the CHAIN and GOBACK statements, BLANK WHEN ZERO, INITIAL (preliminary), and SPECIAL-NAMES (preliminary) clauses, and COMPUTATIONAL-X type has been added to the compiler. The compiler front end has been enhanced to enable TC to create an executable directly using the command line. The command line options have been changed to more closely reflect the GCC options. There is preliminary support for the Win32 (native, no emulation layer required) platform using the MinGW (Mingw32) tool chain.

Release Notes: This release contains mainly bugfixes and enhancements. It includes updates to the main compiler, the run-time, and the regression test suite. The grammar was modified to enable compilation with Bison. The MOVE run-time routines have been updated and improved. ScreenIO has been updated to handle screen status and function keys. Support for [SIGN IS] {LEADING/TRAILING} [SEPARATE] clauses have been added to the compiler run-time. Preliminary work was started on the NIST test programs.

Release Notes: This release contains mainly bugs fixes and enhancements. It includes updates to the preprocessor, main compiler, RTS, the regression test suite, and the EVALUATE, GOTO, READ, WRITE, RETURN, DELETE, START, and REWRITE statements. Support for multiple WHEN clauses in SEARCH statement, [SIGN IS] {LEADING/TRAILING} [SEPARATE] clauses, FLOAT-LONG (COMP-2) FLOAT-SHORT (COMP-1) floating point types, INSPECT...CONVERTING clause, have been added to the compiler.

Release Notes: This release contains bugs fixes, and enhancements, including updates to the preprocessor, math verbs, MOVE (CORRESPONDING option) statement, COMPUTE (exponent operator) statement, enhancements to the regression test suite. Support for the BLANK WHEN ZERO clause, SYNC clause, qualification, OCCURS...DEPENDING ON... clause (variable-sized tables), RECORD VARYING ... DEPENDING ON ... (variable-sized records) clause, multiple record defines for FD entries, sequence of source programs, have been added to the compiler.

Release Notes: This release contains bugfixes and enhancements, including updates to the math verbs, the STRING statement, file IO READ/WRITE statements, DISPLAY/ACCEPT statements, SET statement, and abbreviated conditional expressions. Reference modification, pointer types, and EXTERNAL semantics (preliminary) have been added to the compiler. The new preprocessor will now execute by default. The Win32 (preliminary) platform, using the Cygwin emulation layer, is now supported.
