IM 100: Squeak Board Update

October 28, 2012 21:45:43.532

Welcome to episode 100 of Independent Misinterpretations - a Smalltalk and dynamic language oriented podcast with James Robertson and David Buck.

This week James interviewed two of the current Squeak Board members - Craig Latta and Chris Cunnington. The topic? Where Squeak is now, and where it's headed.

Hi guys,

Just a comment about Aida/Web presumably not supported on Squeak: Aida is always released on VW and Squeak/Pharo. Aida is designed and developed all the time with portability in mind. To all Smalltalks, not just for that or another camp. We'd like that Smalltalkers as such a small community unite, not divide ourselves!

In last year or two Aida is always ported and tested on Pharo first. It is true that previous version of Aida was ported but not tested on Squeak, because previous Pharo ports worked on Squeak automatically. Yet on latest Squeak 4.2 not which we discovered in a squeak.org upgrading week Chris Cunningham mentioned in above interview. But this small glitch doesn't mean Squeak is not supported at all! Contrary, even that I admit I didn't have much time in a week we agreed to work together on website upgrade, a patched Aida was provided in few days and announced on the list Chris followed as well. So Chris, if you lost interest on migrating squeak.org so fast, you should at least be honest and don't spread false information around. An information you should know it is not true.
