3.6 was released on Oct. 7, 2003. It contains numerous changes versus 3.5.
- Several packages were split off from the image. (See Modularizing the Squeak image) This also means there will be a separate Full release including the extra packages, and a Basic release without them.
- Support for TrueType Text styles, meaning that TrueType fonts can now be loaded and easily used in windows, browsers, etc.
- A rewrite of the networking code by Michael Rueger.
- Improvements to contexts, processes and the compiler by Anthony Hannan, which will also help support block closures in a future release.
- Numerous changes by the KCP (Kernel Cleanup Project), including cleaning up much of SystemDictionary.
- Numerous changes by the MCP (Morphic Cleanup Project) group.
- Declarative Pool Dictionaries.
- Many fixes and smaller enhancements.
3.5 was released in April 2003. This was just a quick re-release of 3.4, with a couple of important bugfixes included. (A ClassBuilder fix which allows all classes to be recompiled, and a fix for loading projects with jpegs.)
Released on March 3rd, 2003, by Doug Way taking over from Scott Wallace.
The main purpose of this release was to create an up to date, viable version, which would be a good starting point to making Squeak more modular and it's development more decentralized.
- Includes non-modules related updates from 3.3a, including the dynamic filelist services refactoring.
- An option to load the SqueakMap package catalog and the base Package Loader from the net.
- A dynamic open menu so packages can now register there and become first class applications.
- Refactorings making various parts of the image easily removable.
- Various other fixes have been included.
(The 3.3alpha branch with Modules was declared obsolete. See Modules Discussion at OOPSLA 2002.)
