welcome to the The Weekly Squeak Summary, an irregular
traffic-dependent report on what's going on in the world of Squeak
based on the Weekly Squeak blog.
Highlights of the past weeks:
Squeak's documentation base has seen two significant improvements.
There now is a detailed tutorial  focused on the development of a
little game. The tutorial covers many aspects from Squeak installation
over unit testing to version management with Monticello. The second
important improvement is the book "Squeak by Example"  that covers
the entire Squeak system. The book is available for free as a PDF
download, but can also be purchased in print for very little money.
Who says Squeak isn't usable in production? Qwaq and Intel are
The OLPC initiative's XO laptops are going into production , and
there finally was some credible and balanced coverage of the project
in German television . More smashing news is upcoming but not yet
ready for being posted in the Weekly Squeak Summary... ;-)
