IBM yesterday made one of its rag bag announcements with odd little items affecting every level of its product line. At the top end the company added new APL and Fortran releases to improve performance on 3090s using the Vector Facilities. APL 2.1.3 exploits the Vector Facility under MVS/XA and VM and costs $4,170 and $695 a month. VS Fortran 2.3.0 compiler library and interactive debugger adds vectorising enhancements. On the RT, IBM plans Sun’s Network File System at $995 for September 1988; there is an eight-port asynchronous RT adaptor.
