I'm writing here so that it appears on the planet. GNU Smalltalk 3.2 is now available. It has lots of new features like:

  • gst-browser (or VisualGST), a brand new browser written using GTK+ which replaces the old gst-blox which was written using Tk. It looks beautiful and already has lots of features.
  • gst-package which allows you to download packages via internet. You can grab Iliad Web Framework in just a few seconds and you are ready to go!
