This periodic publication is meant to capture those Squeak related
announcements which appeared on public mailing lists but were not sent
to the Squeak Announcements mailing list. Ideally there would be no

announcement and do not wish to suffer the fate of my terse summaries I
suggest you Cc [hidden email] .
