[etoys-dev] code for squeakfest RC

We're in the final few days of zeroing in on a Squeak Etoys release- 
candidate for distribution and use at next week's Squeakfest in Los  

Here are nine JIRA tickets which have fileouts pending that purport to  
fix various issues.

All of these are either *important* (SQ-99, SQ-243, SQ-274, SQ-288) or  
desirable-and-low-risk (the rest).

I am proposing that all nine of these are worthy of consideration for  
the release, and would like to appeal for help in testing them, with  
an eye to pushing them to the etoys-dev update stream on Thursday.

Please report any adverse experiences with any of these, as well as  
any successful experiences.

To help us test these, look at the JIRA tickets, and download,  
install, and try out the latest fileout in each such ticket (in an up- 
to-date etoys-dev image):

using the "fix" url's provided above, be careful to get the correct  
version of the fix, which often is not the last attachment listed by  

Thanks to all who can find time to help testing these.
