Hello amber community,

Eight months ago I met Nicolas Petton, discovered Amber and developed a
game prototype with it. Recently Nicolas Petton asked me if I could deploy
it to show examples of what you can do with Amber. So* I spent several
hours reading / updating my old code, updating to latest amber version and
I deployed a beta version here :*

According to my tests on Mac OS X, on :
- Firefox it works fine
- Google Chrome it works fine the first time (cache problem) with the *best
animation experience* but there is a problem when you refresh the page
- Safari it works fine the first time but there is a huge cache problem, so
you need to close safari and reopen it to reopen the page.

There is no AI, so you have to play two player on the same computer for
now. Unfortunately I disabled a lot of functionality in this deployed
version because most of them were not stable but only prototypes. Also, I
developed that when I was a student and I am ashamed of the bad quality of
the code ... *I'm going to refactor and work on it in the next two months
to go to a true release* *at the end of May*. And I'll fix this cache
problem on Safari and Chrome :). I let on purpose amber in non deploy mode
so you can browse the bad code if you want to (and to show it is open

This is my first use of git (I used monticello and svn only before) and the
repo seems to be not correct. I will change that so the beta version link
might be obselete in a few days.

By the way *congratulations for Amber it is really cool.*

Are the workspace DoIt working the same way in helios that in the previous
browser ? Like you need to declare temp variables in the contrary of all
the other smalltalk systems ? If so I'd like to hack in your compiler Nico
to change that.
