[Pharo-project] ConfigurationOfMagma with support for Magma 1.2 and symbolic versions

Hi Marco,

this is a problem caused by running the update process on a Pharo image.
The update process is enabled only on PharoCore image precisely to avoid
this problem, that is, that the update process break some package
installed (or some overriden  method from some package) by updating the
method with an uncompatible version.

The problem here is that the class SHParserST80 isn't anymore in the
image and is used by OContext of the package OCompetion. You can open a
ticket with this problem in the issue tracker in order to not forget it.


Cheers
