Formerly known by its Merlin code-name, Warp 4 will include a Java run-time and compiler and allow any Java app-let to run on the software. Other key features include the integration of IBM's VoiceType voice recognition software and a refreshed user interface that includes icon descriptor flags, Lotus's SmartCentre tool bar, and a one-click exit button.
