The new release includes the following changes:

  • Bugfixes from 2.3.6.
  • Rewritten DBI library with support for MySQL and Postgres, contributed by Mike Anderson.
  • The ZLib deflation stream was rewritten and supports partial flushing.
  • Added parser written in Smalltalk for GNU Smalltalk 3.0 syntax.
  • Faster package loading, does not need InfoZIP anymore except when building gst.
  • Stricter argument check for #copyFrom:to: and #copyFrom:.
  • The documentation generator used during the build is also installed as gst-doc.
  • Late binding of variable names allows a single Eval to load an external file and refer to a class defined in that file.
  • Added new Sport package.
  • SUnit testsuites can access variables defined on the command-line to gst-sunit.

From now on, the 3.0 branch is considered feature-frozen.
