The Unix release that finally merges the Unix and Xenix strands of the operating system for hardware based on the Intel Corp family of 16- and 32-bit microprocessors, Unix System V/386 Release 3.2, will be available in early releases from this month, according to AT&T Unix Europe in Putney. The company promises that the product will be shown at London’s European Unix User Show at the beginning of this month, but will not be available as a general sourcecode release until August. The release is distinct from the nonIntel version of System V.3.2, which was launched with the AT&T 3B2/700 processor last month (CI No 925): Xenix compatibility will be combined with System V and Berkeley 4.2 Unix in all versions from System V.4, due out next year.
