Etoys4-RC4 is shortly going to be up on


Please test thoroughly, we will release this as is unless a really  
critical issue is found this week!

Known Issues (to be included in Release Notes)

* Uploading a project from Etoys to Squeakland does not work if you  
are behind a proxy. Please use a Web Browser to upload projects in  
this case.
* If you encounter issues in the Web Browser Plugin, try clicking the  
Full Screen button in the Etoys tool bar. This can fix animation  
sluggishness, as well as wrong key or button mappings.
* Macintosh: On Snow Leopard, the Web Browser Plugin works unreliable  
in Safari. We recommend to use Firefox in the mean time.
