The Book (sadly) describes a quite old version of Pharo (1.0 with a special Code Browser).

In the meantime, we changed (improved, simplified) *a lot* of things... 

The problem is that it's futile to try to keep the book up to date. We will make a new one for 2.0 :-)

So the best is to use the version linked from http://pharobyexample.org/


when doing exercises from the book.
