Clément Béra just posted an excellent article explaining the new Spur Object format. Definitely worth a read!
Find out more about the Squeak VM called Cog and the new memory manager called Spur at Eliot’s Cog Blog.
5 October, 2013
From Eliot: Clément Béra is, amongst other things, working on Cog performance, looking at adaptive optimization/speculative inlining (Sista in Cog, for Speculative Inlining Smalltalk Architecture).
I just wanted to welcome Clément Béra and to say thank you to everyone working on the VM for both communities, you know who you are (and we do to) and especially Eliot for working on Cog and keeping the advancements coming! Hip Hip … and all that.

Stéphane Ducasse got proceedings off to a flying start yesterday with an intensive introduction to Smalltalk for newcomers. Today, work continues on a number of projects including SUnit, Seaside, Pier, Gofer, SLAPS (an LDAP server implementation) and Spoon.
And, of course, everyone is taking the opportunity to begin catching up with old friends, making new ones, and preparing their presentations for next week’s ESUG Conference.
