Smalltalk Squeak 4.2 is available

Nice image, lots of things back in (albeit no Omnibrowser but it is easy to get it inside). Also, there is the comeback of the ST-80 classes. Morphic has a good set of elements, and the look and feel is really great. Mouse buttons got changed, now the right click brings up the halos. Much easier. Very promising thing. I'll test drive it in the coming days/weeks for my project about trigonometry with morphs. Check out this screenshot (done from inside Squeak from the new screenshot option in the World menu): As you notice, this is fullscreen. There is a toggle switch in the Squeak top menu. Very nice. No more hint of any underlying OS. Squeak *is* the OS!

I am listed as a Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware service provider

Which means that: "The Tiki Software Community Association has established the Tiki Service Provider program to help match Tiki consultants with users who wish to purchase support. These Tiki Service Providers are active members of the Tiki Community and have agreed to the Tiki Service Provider Code of Conduct. By working with these consultants, clients are helping to grow the Tiki Community." I've been inside the internals of the thing, helped create sites, or created them altogether. Tiki is for me the best tool for the job when creating community-support sites that have to do with complex access rights, modules, calendars, ... In fact, Tiki allows someone to focus one the real business needs since almost everything is available out of the box. Only the complex requires more intervention. So, if you need support around here (or everywhere else if you happen to have Skype and/or an IM connection, I am happy to help!
