Squeak Roundup 2/5/2008

Ken Causey-3
Squeak Roundup #2
February 5, 2008

Here you will find a quick summary of announcements and related items
from recent weeks that never quite made it to the Squeak Announcements
mailing list.  See the end of this message for more meta-information.

Not too suprisingly I'm going to start this second issue with a
correction to the first: being the lazy sort I used copy and paste where
I could and since there were two Squeak-Dev/Squeak-Web releases in the
last issue I used the same text and adapted.  Except I missed changing
the month in the heading.  Oh well, I hope that wasn't too confusing.

This issue ended up rather long because frankly I forgot that I had
started doing this.  Hopefully I won't leave it quite this late next

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
need for this publication but use of the Announcements mailing list has
not quite settled in the community's unconscious.  So if you have an
announcement and do not wish to suffer the fate of my terse summaries I
suggest you Cc [hidden email] .
