ABSTRACT
Over forty years ago, the term "software engineering" was coined as a challenge to establish software design and development on a firm engineering footing. Twenty years ago, "Prospects for an Engineering Discipline of Software" assessed progress toward that goal. This article updates the assessment, showing that we have made progress but still have much left to do.
