IBM’s usual Tuesday announcement was pretty much confined to saying OS/2 Extended Edition 1.1 with the Local Area Network Requester, and a Precompiler Applications Programming Interface in the Database Manager, would ship today, Wednesday in the US at $830. The new interface in the database enables developers to write their own precompilers, and OS/2 language developers can now offer a Database Manager precompiler for their language compilers, and any OS/2-compiled programming language can, potentially, use the Database Manager. Also out today is OS/2 LAN Server 1.0, which provides local area networking for inter connected OS/2 Extended Edition 1.1 and MS-DOS machines on IBM Token-Ring and PC Networks; it offers resource sharing for printers, disks and serially attached devices and facilities to define, control and manage net access; it’s $1,040.
