  The old site has been shut down (on purpose) to avoid confusion
with the new server.  The new server seems to be taking some time to
get up (I gather that there was a plan to hook the squeakland.org
accounts to the SVN accounts, which I would think overkill).

  It copies files, and the image file is supposed to be already
properly setup before running it, as we are supposed to have the
latest deployable image on the SVN server.

  See the snipped below at the end of this email.

  The VM is basically the latest mainstream squeak VM that Andreas
releases, but with the icon resource swapped by ResHack program (I do
it manually, but you only need to do it every once a while).  The
plugins are just the ones that are the in the SVN directory.  We now have:

FT2Plugin.dll (comes with the stock VM)

  Milan,  thank you very much for taking on this!
