we will not start 1.4 before 1.3 is at least one month in beta.

this is what we did. We got now 3 months of beta and result: nobody look at it

yes but if nobody look at them, does it make a difference?

marcus did that and this is not the problem.

We should no have pharo-dev just pharo-core + RB + oCompletion + shout in the core.
