Magma 1.2 is now finally released for Squeak 4.2, Pharo 1.1 and Pharo
1.2.  This new release offers improved performance thanks to
minimizing the problem associated with finalization, as well as
avoiding Squeak's slow become except once every 30 seconds.  See

     http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6163

for release-notes details.

I just went through all of the wiki pages and fixed / updated several
of them, including new, clean, one-click installation scripts for for
Pharo:

Squeak users may install with one-click directly from the SqueakMap
Catalog user-interface.  I hope Pharo will consider bringing this back
into a future version;  SqueakMap already has several projects that
load from Metacello.

I also realized several of Magma's special capabilities have been
undocumented.  I've now documented them.

This release is, exactly, one year since Magma 1.1, thank you for your
patience.  As before, support for Magma is described at:
