A source code management system initially developed for use with Smalltalk and then known as Orwell, when a number of the original developers left to found OTI the Orwell system was re-written from scratch as a tool to help with development of the ENVY/Smalltalk development system. After IBM took over OTI, ENVY/Developer was folded into the Enterprise versions of VisualAge Smalltalk and in IBM documentation is often referred to as just ENVY.

Unlike the open source tools most people are familiar with the ENVY system is not file based (check-in, check-out metaphor).
