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
