SqueakJS-Etoys-20140704

From Bert Freudenberg:

Hi all,

my SqueakJS VM has reached a major milestone. It is now sufficiently complete to run a full Etoys image (and possibly other non-closure images, too). It has support for most BitBlt modes, WarpBlt, even some Balloon2D rendering (for TTF fonts), a virtual file system, image saving etc.

Try it: http://bertfreudenberg.github.io/SqueakJS/etoys/
(Safari and IE are significantly faster than Firefox and Chrome, best is Safari Webkit nightly, works on iPad too, hopefully Android)

For more details, see my blogpost:
http://croquetweak.blogspot.de/2014/07/squeakjs-runs-etoys-now.html

Feedback and contributions welcome 🙂

Clément Béra just posted an excellent article explaining the new Spur Object format.  Definitely worth a read!

Eliot Miranda has also mentioned that Spur is coming to life in Newspeak as we speak and then Squeak 5.0.

Find out more about the Squeak VM called Cog and the new memory manager called Spur at Eliot’s Cog Blog.
