You've heard me talk about the Mist project, a Smalltalk written
entirely within Smalltalk with no C code and no VM. For the past few
years I've been thinking about it and writing a bit of code here and
there, but only talking to a very limited number of people about it.

However, a couple of weeks ago at the ESUG conference, I want public
with Mist, put the code on Github, and a small community has been
building. If you're interested in following the project (or, even
contributing) there's a mailing list at


The code and issues are at


There have been regular commits there for three weeks now, and I'm
hoping to keep the momentum up. I'm also preparing a talk on Mist for
the Smalltalks conference in November, and will be putting some of that
material about goals and design online at the (not-yet-operational)
mist-project.org website.
