                                Copyright (c) 1996 xTech Ltd.

Native XDS v2.14 for Windows NT and Windows 95 is now available
as a free pre-release.

xTech development system (XDS) is a professional system featuring
Modula-2 and Oberon-2 programming languages. It is available for most
popular platforms, including PC/MS-DOS, OS/2, Linux, Windows NT,
Windows 95, Unix workstations (Sun, HP, DEC, MIPS), etc. XDS provides
an uniform programming environment for all mentioned platforms and
allows to design and implement truly portable software.

The XDS Modula-2 compiler implements ISO standard of Modula-2. The
ISO standard library set is accessible for both Modula-2 and Oberon-2.

All XDS implementations share the same platform-independent front-end
for both source languages. The output code can be either a native code
for the target platform (Native XDS) or a text in the ANSI C language.
The ANSI C code generation is available for all platforms. A number of
platforms for which a native code compiler is available is constantly

XDS includes standard ISO and PIM libraries along with a set of
utility libraries and an interface to the ANSI C library set.

Native XDS for Windows NT and Windows 95 produces highly optimized
32-bit code and comes with two major enhancements: the IDE and Win32
API support. A significant sibset of Win32 API is accessible from both
Modula-2 and Oberon-2.

A new optimization is introduced in version 2.14 - instruction
scheduling for 486 and Pentium processors.
