Re: [SPAM] Re: [Pharo-users] [ANN] Pharo Launcher 2.0 released!


This looks like a major update with some very welcome features and improved UI.
Very welcome and thanks for the work!

One item I would like to see is a mention in the help on implications of upgrading from the existing
Pharo launcher. Bit nervous to install when I don't know what will become of existing configurations in the old one.
I am assuming that the new one is independent and will simply start off blank. It would be nice to have this tackled in the
documentation. Maybe a short section on "Moving your configurations / images from the old Launcher".

Great job!

Great Job. It looks indeed nicer.

One suggestion would be to add the help contextually. I tried to look at. There is description of commands and SpLinkPresenter but don’t think it’s easy to add. I wanted to add the ling in the help description.

For instance, the one to create an image for template:

Any way of doing that ?
