Pharo is a fork of Squeak.

Pharo versions
Current release is Pharo 6.1 - July 2017.
Shell version of Pharo 5


Pharo by example
 GLMBasicExamples open


Classic Morphic code is still mostly compatible with Pharo.
Morphic halos in Pharo.
Pharo uses the "Glamorous Toolkit" instead of ToolBuilder for the tools.
Another UI toolkit is Spec (Pharo).

Pharo contained a new text model TxModel (Pharo) which later was replaced again (Bloc, upcoming).

Many Pharo projects are hosted on Smalltalk hub.
Pharo documentation is written using Pillar.
List of all projects: http://smalltalkhub.com/list

Roassal is visualization engine written for Pharo Smalltalk.

With Pharo 6 a new versioning system called Iceberg was introduced. It is an abstraction over a distributed source code versioning system looking like git. Monticello is still available and works as in Squeak.

Cuis is another fork of Squeak.

Studio is a debugger for the data produced by complex applications. Studio imports dense and "messy" data in an application's own native formats, then it applies all the tools that are needed to extract useful information, and finally it presents the results in an interactive graphical user interface.
It is built on Pharo. Manual

You can go with http://smalltalkhub.com/#!/~PharoExtras/Gettext

For non latin language you will have to provide extra font at load time.

It works fine on DrGeo based on P3, wtih Latin, Cyrilic, Korean, Chinese ideogram, Japanese[1] messages.

I have no idea regarding its compatibility with P7 however.

Will not work with right to left languages, though.

For asian input methods, a no go too.

Well, i've got very extensive feedback for i18n of applications, there are few

You should use the gettext package from PharoExtra, this is the one Seaside developers maintain. I don't understand why there are alternative repo for it...


What can i do with Pharo? Does it have unified method to deploy pharo applications? I didn't find that method, and i ought to do some messy stuff "by hand".

Of course, you can completely automate your application build.

You can take a look at the DrGeo build scripts there. Part of the image preparation is done inside the image.

The application build will not be the part I worry about, but more on the GUI. I don't know how complex is your GUI application but Pharo is now on flux with several competitive GUI frameworks, all in the image (spec, Polymoprh, GT), and forth coming brick/bloc. And depending on the complexity you need, you may not have all you need.
