EiffelStudio 15.12 released: enhancements in the Eiffel notation and the Web front end

December 10, 2015

Much improved language and EiffelWeb library.

Eiffel Software announced today the release of EiffelStudio 15.12, the latest version of its Integrated Development Environment (IDE). EiffelStudio is a comprehensive suite of tools that enable programmers to produce correct, reliable, and maintainable software systems while keeping control of the development process.

With EiffelStudio 15.12, the EiffelWeb library makes big strides for those looking to use Eiffel for web applications. EiffelWeb’s first success stories are the Eiffel Software’s new support site and the Eiffel community site, both entirely written in Eiffel. Other than the usual important bug fixes and performance enhancements delivered with each release, EiffelStudio 15.12 also features support for new agent’s type notation reducing the amount of typing without losing any expressiveness..

“Thanks to the recent improvements in EiffelWeb, EiffelStudio is becoming a truly multi-functional IDE,” says Jocelyn Fiat, Lead Engineer for the EiffelWeb. “Our users have asked for improvements in the web part of our offerings and with EiffelStudio 15.12, we are answering their calls. With the new sites written entirely with EiffelWeb, we give them an example to lean on to build their first web applications in Eiffel. But we won’t stop there: expect EiffelWeb to get even better with each successive EiffelStudio release.”
