The Weekly Squeak Summary No. 8: Nov 19, 2006 - Jan 6, 2007

Michael Haupt-3
Dear Squeakers,

welcome to the The WeeklySqueakSummary, a weekly report on what's
going on in the world of Squeak based on the WeeklySqueak blog.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Another video contains a talk on Exupery by Bryce Kampjes [11]. The
slides are readable in the video, but unfortunately, the video itself
is incomplete because the tape ran out during recording.

Finally, there is a tutorial on setting up a SqueakSource image to
create your own SqueakSource server [9], making available
project-oriented version control for everyone without the need for
having access to the server at itself.
