The beta includes the following features:
- Primitive support for UTF8 encoding (100x faster than Smalltalk-based algorithm).
- Primitive support for HTML encoding.
- Thread local support for GsProcess and continuations. Thread locals are being used in Seaside2.9.
- Improved ProfMonitor output code moved from GLASS-only to base image.
The beta is shipped with GLASS.230-dkh.130 and GemStone-dkh.270 (both can be found in the GLASS project on GemSource). GLASS.230-dkh.130 is equivalent to GLASS-dkh.114, except for references to the UTF8 and HTML encoding primitives.
A version of the appliance based upon 2.3 beta 1 will be available shortly.
