I updated the original statement to include that with Caché and Ensemble 2018.1.2 we added support for two new platforms:

Ubuntu 18.04

Windows Server 2019.1

InterSystems has completed the verification process for running our products on Windows Server 2019.

  • InterSystems IRIS is now supported with 2019.1 and later
  • Caché and Ensemble are now supported with version 2017.2 and later

InterSystems found no issues and existing kits are supported.

We currently anticipate that this version will be supported on Windows Server 2019, but we will have to wait for the conclusion of our verification process to be sure.

Thanks for all your questions and comments.    A bit more of an explanation:

 

    We’re reviewing our plans beyond Atelier 1.3 in order to radically improve the developer experience with InterSystems IRIS Data Platform. 

    We welcome your ideas and feedback, and invite private communication to ensure that our plans are sound.  

 

    In the meantime:

·        If you are using Studio and happy with it, keep using it.   We are maintaining it indefinitely and are happy that there are so many active developers and that the community has expert advice as well as add-on tools that work with Studio.

·        If you are using Atelier and happy with it, keep using it, and look forward to version 1.3.   We are also maintaining it indefinitely.  We've reached a milestone and have many users that are productive and effective with Atelier, including combining it with other Eclipse plug-ins.   

·        If you are starting work with a new development group, use Atelier.   Eclipse is familiar to millions of developers, and Atelier is more than sufficient to get the job done.  Consult with us on these projects as you get going, because there are some areas such as Ensemble productions where developers may want to use Studio or other tools along with Atelier.

After the release of Atelier 1.3, scheduled for late August, Atelier will only receive critical software corrections, no enhancements.

Hi Dmitry, the Atelier team has started to switch the Atelier release cycle to quarterly releases. Yearly released like we all observed between 1.0 and 1.1 are not helpful. Like so often when change is required there are wrinkles in time that will influence how quick this change will occur. We are experience this in the moment, but working diligently toward quarterly releases. InterSystems well established process is to report issues or enhancement request via the WRC. This will have to continue. The Atelier team is very careful and keenly aware that the prioritization of what gets done is important not only to InterSystems, but also to the users of Atelier. There are many strategic areas in which we need to succeed. I like the idea of public voting if appropriate and within a certain scope. We will introduce this in the future.
