Version 3.0.4 of GNU Smalltalk

Release Notes: A few operations on collections have been sped up. Code without a space between a binary minus and a number, such as "a-2", is parsed correctly. Sockets use the close-on-exec option. Bugs were fixed regarding pipes, FIFO files, nested exception handlers, virtual filesystems, HTTP, bytecode optimization, Stream iteration, and the Windows port.

Other releases

Release Notes: This is a minor release, mostly consisting of bugfixes in network-related packages. It also includes improvements to the Emacs smalltalk-mode, fixes for platforms with 113-bit long doubles, and fixes to the C binding mechanism. The parser for the Squeak/Pharo format was updated.

Release Notes: Many bugs were fixed. gst-package supports downloading from HTTPS URLs. You can optionally specify a timeout when waiting on a Semaphore. SCGI support was added in the Swazoo Web server. Virtual machine performance was improved on x86-64. Starting from these release, bundled libraries (libsigsegv, libffi, libltdl) are never preferred over pre-installed libraries.
