Me and MaulOnce the GemTools 1.0-beta.6 configuration was released, James Foster took a Pharo 1.0 one-click image and transformed it into a GemTools 1.0-beta.6 one-click(zip) for OS X, Linux and Windows.

The one-click image is available on the GLASS downloads page.

SSGN-OHIO_launch_Tomahawk-01Pier version 1.2.1.4 fixes a couple of GemStone portability issues.

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

MCPlatformSupport commitOnAlmostOutOfMemoryDuring: [
	[	Gofer project load: 'Seaside28' version: '2.8.4.6'.
		Gofer project load: 'Magritte' version: '1.2.1.4'.
		Gofer project load: 'Pier' version: '1.2.1.4' ]
	on: Warning
	do: [:ex |
		Transcript cr; show: ex description.
		ex resume ]].

I recommend that you specify explicit versions when you load, because the default version of intermediate projects may not be exactly what you expect. By explicitly loading a version you will have fewer surprises.

Note also that I’ve wrapped the standard Gofer project load messages with a handler for Warnings that dumps the  warning message to the Transcript and then resumes execution. The #commitOnAlmostOutOfMemoryDuring: method will do just that … it creates and enables an AmostOutOfMemory signal handler that performs a commit when you are almost out of memory – quite convenient for any operation that might run out of memory on you.
