I'm really sad.
And I went to give them lectures for free.....
> Hi all,
> the Mellon foundation just approved the grant to Astea in Bulgaria
> to redevelop Sophie in Java! Astea (http://asteasolutions.com) are
> the nice guys that we trained and who then turned around, stating on
> their web site that they developed Sophie, took our Sophie documents
> and artwork for their proposal and managed to persuade Mellon to
> actually give them money...
> We moved the current Sophie project to http://opensophie.org, hoping
> to keep Sophie alive and making Sophie better than what they can
> come up with.
> And why I'm sending this to the Pharo list?
> Pharo already has so much promise as a base system, hopefully
> providing in the core already what we had to re-invent in Sophie
> because it didn't work in the main Squeak version. The Freetype
> stuff already turned out really well! Hopefully more to come.
> And once I finish these new etoys installers I can do some Pharo
> work too, hopefully ;-)
