"As pressure for shorter development cycles mounts, more tool vendors are pitching wares designed to help developers do their jobs faster and better."

"Inprise Corp. will announce, at Comdex in Las Vegas this week, plans to release the source code of its Kylix Linux rapid application development tool to the GNOME Foundation. The company, which will revert to its former name, Borland, early next year, will also announce the availability of a free version of its Java development tool, JBuilder 4.0."

"Inprise officials said support for GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment), part of the GNU free software project, will be added into Kylix, so that applications developed with Kylix will adjust to the look and feel of the GNOME desktop. Inprise also is joining the foundation and will participate in the Bonobo out-of-process component specification, as well as add support for Bonobo to Kylix, which is in beta."
