For the SerialPlugin, there are two enhancements that will be found
in VMMaker and Squeak that should be added to Cog and to Pharo:

1) The named serial port updates are documented at

2) A separate bug fix for SerialPlugin on Unix is at

The VMMaker updates are in class SerialPlugin. These can probably
be copied directly from VMMaker trunk to the oscog branch using an
MC browser.

The platforms source changes can probably be copied directly from
Subversion trunk to the branches/cog tree, although I have not looked
at them to verify this (the platforms cog branch has changes in various
places, so some merging might be required). Note that the platforms
changes must be supported for all platforms, not just unix.

I think that the image changes have already been copied from Squeak
to Pharo. If not, just copy class SerialPort.
