Sorry for changing topic ... but with all these
[ANN] replies we cant see if there are really new
When 1.2 Hudson was red nobody seemed to care and
now that it is green/blue again discussion starts. Good or bad?
At least I wished that happened earlier and a red Hudson
shows that we have to do our homework.
Pharo 1.2 really took time and I think we can expect further
releases to take even longer since the more we clean up the
harder it would be to keep compatibility with all the existing
We all know a core alone would be useless - we have to decide
which packages are maintainable by the community and worth
to move forward with Pharo-dev.
We have two goals that sometimes collide:
-> build a small kernel/core
-> build a better Smalltalk (feature rich and with good tools)
If we work on cleaned up loadable/unloadable and well tested
packages it would be less problematic since we can work in
both images and load/unload as needed. That should be the
main goal for 1.3. and beyond. Hudson is our watchdog.
Nonetheless ... with Pharo 1.1 the open source ST world
already changed and we have first companies/people using Pharo.
Pharo is an accepted Smalltalk version.
Since Pharo 1.2 is a much better and cleaner version I hope
this will continue/raise and Pharo will find more new friends
to help. :)
