Squeak 5.2 Release Notes
Last updated at 1:49 pm UTC on 6 June 2018
All relevant features, fixes, or other changes can be collected here. Eventually, they should be transcribed to the in-image notes via this file on GitHub:
Note that this file is meant to be edited via Squeak's Help Browser. Here is how it works:
1. Check that file out into your Squeak working directory under "release-notes".
2. Open Squeak's Help Browser via Help>ReleaseNotes in the world's main docking bar..
3. Make changes. [CMD]+[1-9] offer interesting formatting options. Text URLs can trigger code evaluation such as "code://String browse".
4. Save changes via [CMD]+[S]. Changes will be written into the file system directly.
5. Upload the changed file into the GitHub repository again. Or ask somebody with access rights to do it.
The call "ReleaseBuilder fileOutChangesBetweenReleases" creates a mark-down file with the latest commit messages. This can be used to track down what happened since the last release.
Improvements in Language, Tools, and the Environment
- Some fixes in event handling and filtering including drag-and-drop.
- We merged the latest Etoys changes into the code base, which still needs serious clean up. This includes several classes and messages that should not be used by application code because they might be removed or renamed in the future. As an indicator, just watch out for the "Etoys" system category or message protocols that begin with "etoys".
- SqueakSSL support begins with Windows 7 and above.
