  • Keith has also resurrected an implementation of the Null pattern, that allows avoiding using many #ifNil or #notNil sends.
  • Edgar J. De Cleene announced ZurgleRemake, a porting to current Squeak versions of the old Zurgle UI-skinning and native-widgets-emulation engine.
  • Edgar also announced availability of a new version of his SqueakLight reduced-size image
  • Pavel Krivanek has released a new version of the shrinking script that he uses to create his Kernel images.

The following releases were announced on the Seaside mailing list:
