Release Notes: This release candidate includes an important bugfix for asynchronous I/O, a new and simpler syntax for calling C functions, and a port of the class browser to Gtk+ 2.4/2.6. The HTTP client now supports HTTP/1.1 chunked encoding. Important bugs in the sockets library were fixed. Bugfixes and portability improvements were incorporated from the stable branch, including support for 64-bit processors.
Release Notes: This version provides portability fixes, especially on 64-bit systems and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Bugs have been fixed in the system classes.
Release Notes: This release is a bugfix release. It especially improves the portability to MacOS systems, and includes a better algorithm to search for package files.
Release Notes: This is a maintainance release, which improves portability to the ia64 and several other platforms.
Release Notes: A first-cut GTK+ implementation of the browser is provided. The GTK+ bindings have been widely improved.
Release Notes: This release improves the ability to use GNU Smalltalk as a scripting language. The standard "#!" sequence at the beginning of a GNU Smalltalk is now parsed specially, and there is a new "-f" command line option to be used on the "#!" line. The source code generators of the GTK+ bindings are now more robust to problems in the GTK+ headers.
Release Notes: Several bugfixes were made for the JIT compiler. A working Java-to-Smalltalk bytecode translator (which does not support networking and reflection yet) was added.
Release Notes: This release fixes a very annoying packaging problem in which "make install" failed, and "make -k install" had to be used instead. A few other mistakes were corrected, mostly for 64-bit systems.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem in #next: for sockets, and updates the build infrastructure to the latest versions of autoconf and automake, making the tarball a bit smaller and improving portability.
Release Notes: Classes that host integer or floating-point values of any size (8-, 16-, 32-, 64-bit) and signedness are supported. Prefetch instructions are used in the garbage collector and a few other loops. A shared library is also built when GCC 3.3 or later is used. Work has proceeded on executing Java programs from within GNU Smalltalk.
