BobbyeM71hxwOpen Source Squeak 4.1 Released

On Friday, Squeak developers released version 4.1 of the Smalltalk open source programming language, and just before six weeks Squeak 4.0 was pushed out.

According to the release announcement, this version combines the licence change occurring in the 4.0 release with the development work that has been going on while the re-licensing process took place.

The latest version includes integration of Cog’s closure implementation, improved user interface look and feel, new anti-aliased fonts, core library improvements and advances in modularity.

According to the Weekly Squeak, one key focus for this release was to address the issues that have been known to frustrate developers using Squeak for the first time.

A much improved set of UI widgets, the new menu bar including the fast search control, integrated help, improved test coverage, more class and method comments, and integrated syntax highlighting all make the system more accessible.
