>>> Hi Folks,
>>> I've just uploaded a new Cuis release to www.jvuletich.org/Cuis/Index.html . This is the first release with support for Eliot's BlockClosures in recent VMs. This was not easy to do! The approach I took was to rename the old compiler while loading the new one. This allowed the system to keep running while doing this. The change sets I built might be of use to people trying to get closures to other Squeak images.

> How about doing that by moving Etoys forward onto Squeak 3.11/4.0? It'll be more work but has two advantages: 1) You don't loose the "stable" line of work which is Etoys 4 and 2) it would allow you to take advantage of lots of other work that has been going on.

That would be even better. It still seems like a big task but I guess it's gotten a lot simpler after your recent refactoring of the squeak-dev image :)

How about you drop by on IRC #etoys for the dev meeting later today?
