Digital Equipment Corp, Fujitsu Ltd, Hewlett-Packard Co, Hitachi Ltd, IBM Corp, Novell Inc and SunSoft Inc have finally inked the Open Software Foundation’s Common Desktop Environment/Motif Pre-Structured Techology Process in which OSF/Motif 2.0 and CDE/Motif 1.0 will be merged into a single source package. There will also be a stand-alone Motif and conformance tests for both. Prime contractor, the X Consortium, will add an SGML, the superset of HyperText Markup Language, browser, the ability to print and display SGML documents, full text search and retrieval and integration with the online help. There will be greater international language support, a print job interface, a single print and display application programming interface, support for Motif text and label widgets, help, calendar, mail, the text editor, multi-threading and 64-bit architectures. A CDE 1.0 maintenance release is due by the end of the year, a Common Desktop Environment-Motif snapshot in mid-1996 and general availability by the end of 1996.
