Bell Buoy CrabsThe first fruits of the GLASS 1.0-beta.8 release: Seaside is available for GLASS, Pharo and Squeak.

After snapping off GLASS 1.0-beta.9 for development this morning, I got right to work porting the absolute latest Seaside 2.8 release to GemStone and since there was new Seaside 2.8 code for Pharo and Squeak, I updated the ConfigurationOfSeaside28 for all three platforms.

To install or upgrade in GLASS 1.0-beta.8 evaluate the following expression in a GemTools workspace:

Gofer project load: 'Seaside28' version: ''.

Now that the configurations for the GLASS code base are broken up into smaller pieces it is very easy for me (or anyone else) to make incremental releases.

In producing this release it should be noted that I released a new version of ConfigurationOfGsCore (version 0.240) without having to release a new ConfigurationOfGLASS. When ConfigurationOf28 the new version of ConfigurationOfGsCore is automatically loaded.

I will be providing detailed development steps shortly, so that other developers can get into the game.

open sign...I know, I know, the paint is not even dry on GLASS 1.0-beta.8 and I’m opening GLASS 1.0-beta.9 for development? Well, of course!

There are nearly a dozen bugs that are targeted for fixing in 1.0-beta.9, so we need a place to stash the bugfixes and with Metacello, that means opening a version for development.

In addition to GLASS version 1.0-beta.9, I’ve  created development versions for each of the fundamental projects managed in ConfigurationOfGLASS:

  • ConfigurationOfGsCore version 0.240
  • ConfigurationOfGsMisc version 0.237
  • ConfigurationOfMonticello version 0.238
  • ConfigurationOfGsOB version 0.239

I am hoping that other developers will eventually start contributing bugfixes to the GLASS project and opening the development versions is the first step. Over the coming weeks I will provide more information about the GLASS development process, but if you are hot to get started, drop me a line and I’ll let you know what I’m thinking.
