[ANN] Open Croquet for Squeak 6.x (experimental)

Nikolay Suslov
Hello, 

Anticipating the new Squeak release! and in the spirit of the "Survey: what do you do with Squeak, what do you *want* to do?" want to share the work on restoring the original Open Croquet onto Squeak 6.x (experimental).

For a long time, the community available Open Croquet images exist only in bootstrap images for Squeak 3.8 and for Squeak 4.2. Actually, there is no any open solution to use the latest Squeak VM and Smalltalk language with Open Croquet architecture. So, that starting from the original version to OpenQwaq, anyone could load it from scratch onto the new Squeak. 
Below you could find install instructions, links and first steps in achiving this.


Comparing to the original Open Croquet for Squeak 3.8/4.2:

* No Embedded Morphic apps (bugs)
* No Tweak (yet) 
* Original TContactPoint (find master on network) broadcaster/listener is replaced with WebSocket broadcaster/listener using WebClient (switching from UDP)
* Island snapshot/serializing/restoring needs deep review

=========================
Instructions and Links:

Preloaded Squeak image:

- Squeak VM and image with preloaded Croquet and content: https://www.krestianstvo.org/sdk/croquet/CroquetForSqueak6-App-MacWin-32bit.zip

- Only Squeak image with preloaded Croquet and content: https://www.krestianstvo.org/sdk/croquet/CroquetForSqueak6-Image-resources.zip

- Only content (Textures, Models, etc.): https://www.krestianstvo.org/sdk/croquet/Content.zip


How To install manually:

1. Get the latest Squeak VM with included B3DAcceleratorPlugin(!)
The preloaded app uses VM cog.spur 32 bit for Mac/Windows:

2. Get the latest Squeak 6.x image from http://files.squeak.org/6.0alpha/

3. Run Squeak.

4. In Workspace DoIt:

This will load FFI, OpenGL and Croquet packages from the project's repository "Open Croquet for Squeak 6.x".

MCHttpRepository
    user: ''
    password: ''

Or you could manually load FFI at first:

(Installer repository: 'http://source.squeak.org/FFI')
    install: 'FFI-Pools';
    install: 'FFI-Kernel';
    install: 'FFI-Tests'.

and then only OpenGL and Croquet packages:

5. Open 'Objects' in Squeak and choose 'Croquet' category.
Drag Croquet(Master) or Demo(Master) onto the empty space.

=========================

Best regards,
Nikolai
