View Full Version : Interface synergies with Rogue Wave?

05-05-2009, 01:07 PM
The announcement of the acquisition of VNI by Rogue Wave is now public (see here: http://vni.com/company/press/pressReleases/roguewave.php).

One of the FAQ's is this:

Do you expect any synergy between the two companies? products?
There are a large number of companies that use products from both Rogue Wave and Visual Numerics, sometimes in the same application. At this time we are not announcing new product combinations but we believe that there are some very interesting synergies and we will be talking to our customers to find out the best way to combine these technologies to better serve their needs.

One of Rogue Wave's products is Stingray, a tool for developing Windows MFC interface applications. Could one of those "interesting synergies" be an upgraded PV-WAVE interface for Windows? I am very interested in seeing the Wave widgets and dialogs upgraded to that of a modern Windows application.

Is that too much to hope for?
