From: Dan Ingalls
Subject: 2.8 available for test
I have just put out a folder '2.8 gamma' on the UIUC server with a Mac stuffit archive (image, changes and VM) and the image and changes uncompressed (these are uploading as I write). I'd like to give people a day to try it out, after which I'll fix anything important or simply elevate it to final status on Friday.
Most of the changes since 'Squeak2.8-2348.sit' have to do with improvements to the Mac VM, and with the ability to get a decent result from majorShrink (it now works without walkbacks, produces an 800k image, and will produce a sourceless image without error if desired).
I also tweaked several of the Play-With-Me's. Please try them and let me know if you find anything amiss.
Thanks for your patience, and for giving this a quick check.
Now back to our normally scheduled broadcast (2.9)...
