A Smalltalk development system originally introduced in late 1984 or early 1985 as Methods, a Smalltalk-80 compatible system for PC-DOS that supported text windows but not mice or graphics. In 1986 a version that supported graphics was introduced in the form of Smalltalk/V, and that was later updated with "Smalltalk/V 286" that supported the larger memory addressing capabilities of the 286 and then in 1988 with Smalltalk/V PM for OS/2 v1.x which was the first version of the system that used the native OS graphic capabilities.
