Pharo 7 changelog proposal

Pavel Krivanek-3
Hi, 

I'm trying to summarize the changelog for Pharo 7 (based on about 2500 merged PRs, not counting standalone commits to Iceberg and Calypso). If something more should be mentioned, please let me know.

Revolutionary kernel changes

Cool. 

Calypso and multiple tags per method is not really functional at this point.

Hi Pavel,

You've mentioned the Zinc update and deprecating FileStream, but I
think the adoption of Zinc streams as the default is probably worth
it's own entry (that was Pharo 7, right?, maybe my memory is failing).

Cheers,
Alistair

Re: Pharo 7 changelog proposal

Pavel Krivanek-3
Hi Alistair,

the FileStream is supposed to be deprecated for several releases. In Pharo 7, we just take it more seriously. We should link to the related deprecation guides. The changelog already contains: "continue on deprecation of FileStream". Moreover, we will add a list of all deprecated methods and classes as we did for Pharo 6.

The changelog already contains: "continue on deprecation of FileStream". Moreover, we will add a list of all deprecated methods and classes as we did for Pharo 6.

The difference is that a couple of classes actually moved to Deprecated and using them now results in warnings.

And although there are still reference to the Deprecated classes, I am relatively sure that the bulk of file stream usage now goes via the newer classes. This is an important milestone and change.

From now on, the message is: use FileReferences and ask them for the [read|write] [character|binary] streams that you need, and what you get back will be different but mostly compatible, the non-compatible changes are deliberate design choices.

Re: Pharo 7 changelog proposal

Stephane Ducasse-3
In reply to this post by Pavel Krivanek-3
Thanks pavel.
This is indeed a really nice list.
Thanks for your effort to gather this summary.
BTW: I would put a bit more emphasis on the new stream and deprecation
of the old stream hierarchy because it was
a large effort. And I want to thank guillermo for this.
