      The Mozart Programming System 1.2.0

      Available at: http://www.mozart-oz.org

      Systems supported: many Unix flavors, Windows 98/NT/2000

      The Mozart consortium is pleased to announce Mozart 1.2.0, a major
      upgrade to the Mozart Programming System. Previous releases were
      Mozart 1.0.0 in 1999 and Mozart 1.1.0 in 2000. Mozart is an advanced
      development platform for intelligent, distributed applications. The
      system is the result of a decade of research in programming language
      design and implementation, constraint-based inferencing, distributed
      computing, and human-computer interfaces. As a result, Mozart is
      unequaled in expressive power and functionality. Mozart has an
      interactive incremental development environment and a
      production-quality implementation for Unix and Windows platforms.

      Mozart is based on the Oz language, which supports declarative
      programming (strict and lazy functional and logic), object-oriented
      programming, constraint programming, and concurrency, as part of a
      coherent whole. For distribution, Mozart provides a true network
      transparent implementation with support for network awareness,
      openness, and fault tolerance. Security is upcoming. Mozart is an
      ideal platform for both general-purpose distributed applications as
      well as for hard problems requiring sophisticated optimization and
      inferencing abilities. We have developed many applications including
      sophisticated collaborative tools, multi-agent systems, and digital
      assistants, as well as applications in natural language understanding
      and knowledge representation, in scheduling and time-tabling, and in
      placement and configuration.

      The platform is released with a very liberal Open Source license
      (X11-style) that allows both commercial and non-commercial use. The
      platform includes a full-fledged interactive development environment
      with many libraries and tools. There is extensive documentation
      including tutorials covering all above mentioned application areas, a
      complete set of reference manuals, and many demos. There is an active
      mailing list as well as an extensive Web site.

      Compared to previous versions, Mozart 1.2.0 offers improved usability,
      reliability, performance, maintainability, and portability, as well as
      conservative extensions for Oz and Mozart libraries. Notably, this
      version allows to run applications with much higher memory demands,
      features an improved distribution subsystem including an advanced
      network monitoring tool, supports a high-level user interface design
      tool, and facilitates porting to 64-bit architectures. The system has
      been extensively field-tested by internal and external use as well as
      in university courses and projects at UdS (Germany), KTH (Sweden), and
      UCL (Belgium).
