Pushed Cocoa Macintosh VM Squeak 64-32 5.7b1

Squeak 64-32 5.7b1.app.zip

Follow the macintosh link from http://www.squeakvm.org/index.html

This VM is built using the current (June 15th, 2010 version of VMMaker.
This VM is setup to run in 32bit mode with a 32bit image.
This VM uses the same plugins (excluding the 32/64bit FT2Plugin) as the 4.2.5b1 VM.

I would suggest people take it for a spin, observe menu handling, drawing, sockets, file i/o, drag and drop, cmd line interface & sound.
I'd like to move away from the 4.x.x VM to 5.x.x as we move towards getting things running on the iPad.
So your help is needed to shake out the bugs.

I've set the get Info to say to launch in 32bit Mode. This lets us use the existing plugins.

If you really want to flip to 64bit execution mode you can uncheck the box.  You will get a dialog at startup, and only the FT2Plugin is certified to work in 64bit mode. Things will run slower but maybe you'll think it's faster...

Features:
On resize we mangle the window bits (oh well). No doubt some more reading is required.
We don't support 8bit video mode, oh likely only 32bit works.

Hi John, good work!

I've been trying the image, i'll concentrate on the drawing while i'm working on my Gaucho system.

Bug: when the hand is dragging a submorph sometimes produces a "in place" white rectangle instead of the morph being dragged. It's somehow a flicker.
Really not that important, but just pointing it out.

A minor observation, when the image starts up a snapshot of the last Quartz display buffer is displayed?
