GNU Smalltalk 3.2.4

GNU Smalltalk 3.2.4 has been released at

This is a minor release, mostly consisting of bug fixes.

This is the list of changes in this release:

  • Autoload is extended to allow plugging in arbitrary loaders.
  • Array items in a CStruct didn't work, this is fixed now.
  • DLD could have problems when the same library was requested multiple times.
  • Errors in the bind() system call were not detected correctly; this has been fixed.
  • Fixes for platforms with 113-bit long doubles.
  • Fixes to Delay in the presence of delays with the exact same expiration.
  • Fixes to the HTTP package, including correct flushing of POST requests and doesNotUnderstand exceptions when the host did not exist.
  • GLUT bindings now build correctly under Windows.
  • Many smalltalk-mode improvements.
  • New methods: TextCollector>>#critical:,
  • nil can be passed to a C function accepting a #cObjectPtr (i.e. void **) argument.
  • SocketAddress>>#allByName: returns nil now, instead of an empty array, when getaddrinfo succeeds but returns no address for the requested address class.
  • SocketAddress>>#byName: returns addresses for the default address class when the receiver is SocketAddress (and not a subclass).
  • Support for older versions of GnuTLS.
  • Swazoo's static content serving was broken and has been fixed.
  • The NetClients exception ProtocolError now includes the erroneous response. Similarly, the package includes ProtocolNotification which is used, for example, for HTTP redirects.
  • Updated the Squeak/Pharo fileout parser.
  • Updated VisualGST.

Thanks to all who contributed to the release!
