I have been trying to follow Squeak by Example and noticed that both the Refactor and Omnibrowsers are missing from 5.1 and was just curious about what happened to them and why they were removed. I found instructions on how-to install the Omnibrowser, but it fails. Any help and/or insight into their removal would be great!

Take care now,

Update:  I was able to find information on how to install the "Omnibrowser", but it appears to be broken.

When I try to add "Omnibrowser" by "Do it" the following instructions:

"Including Refactoring engine"
(Installer ss project: 'MetacelloRepository') install: 'ConfigurationOfOmniBrowser'.
((Smalltalk at: #ConfigurationOfOmniBrowser) project perform: #lastVersion) load: #( Dev ).

Which I located under "Extending The System", in "Help" menu, Squeak displays the following error:

ConnectionTimedOut: Cannot connect to #[64 20 104 5]

During the step "Downloading Gofer-lr.83.mcz". Any help or suggestions about how to properly get the "Omnibrowser" w/Refactor browser would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your assistance. Take care now,
