As the class comment says, the AboutDialog is for application about boxes 
and is intended to be subclassed.
Is pretty general, overriding newContentMorph allows for any content 
required depending on the desires of
the application author...

Example cs attached.

"typically your main application window, World here for the example..."
World openModal: ReportBuilderAboutDialogWindow new

Regards, Gary
