Use Ned Konz's Lockdown package.

More details:

This change set makes it easier to lock down an image for application delivery.

By executing:
	Preferences disableProgrammerFacilities
from your personalized World menu and saving the locked image under a new name, the following features are disabled:

The yellow-button menus in text panes will still come up. It is assumed that text panes in your app will have their own yellow-button menus.

Two existing preferences have been made available in the Preferences tool:
cmdKeysInText – enables the use of many cmd (or alt) keys in text editors
cmdGesturesEnabled – enables halos, debug menus, etc.

Another two new preferences have been added:
appendToErrorLog – appends to the error log rather than replacing it
noDebugButton – suppress the ability to open a debugger from a notifier

You can add this to your personalized World menu:
	aMenu add: 'disable pgrmr' target: Preferences action: 

Or you can add:
	Preferences disableProgrammerFacilities 
to your do... menu list.

Edgar J De Cleene suggested on the squeak-dev mailing list the following changes to the world menu:
TheWorldMenu - a simpler version

Also it makes sense to create a 'create release button' which does the necessary changes, destroys itself and saves the image.
