WriteBarrier now supporting Dictionary, Set and Interval

Chris Muller-4
I'm happy to announce that Magma now supports Dictionary's, Set's and
Intervals being used with the WriteBarrier.  This should provide most
applications a significant boost in performance.

Currently it is included in the most-recent code, which can be installed via:

   Installer new merge: #maInstaller.
   (Smalltalk classNamed: #MaInstaller) new merge: #magmaServer

The (head) script on SqueakMap will give you as much, plus Magma's test suite.

Cheers!
  Chris

Re: WriteBarrier now supporting Dictionary, Set and Interval

Context was introduced in the latest current Squeak (trunk), which is
going to be the new 5.2 release.  Currently, the (head) release of
Magma is currently tracking trunk.   I expect it to be stable, but
this new WriteBarrier Dictionary support is very very new, so you will
want to do some testing.  I can backport this upgrade and make a new
version of Magma for Squeak 5.1, but I assume ultimately we all will
be moving to 5.2 anyway, so...   Can you upgrade to latest trunk at
this point?
