Laker Departing[1]

GemStone/S 64 is the first version in the 2.4.x series for which GLASS is officially supported. GemStone/S 64 2.4 originally shipped in September of 2009, but I delayed announcing GLASS support for 2.4 until I had the configuration issues firmly in hand and Seaside 3.0 support was up to snuff. That day has finally come!

If you are interested in finding out what new and wonderful things are available in at the server level then you should read the 2.4 series of release notes (at a minimum, you should scan the Table of Contents for topics that might interest you):

At the server level and 2.4.4 are identical. The only changes are for GLASS:

Server Documentation

The full set of 2.4.x GemStone server documentation can be found here.

Server Download

You can find downloads for Mac and Linux on the Glass Downloads page.

Server Installation

Installation instructions (via shell script – RECOMMENDED) are also available on the downloads page.

Alternatively you can follow the instructions in the Linux install guide for 2.4. There is no install guide for the Macintosh – use he installation shell script on the downloads page.

Jame’s instructions for installing GemStone on SliceHost (Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)) should still be valid, just download the file instead of 2.4.1

Server Upgrade from GemStone/S 64 2.3.1

If you have an existing GLASS installation running on GemStone/S 64 2.3.1 or an earlier version of GemStone/S 64 2.4 you can upgrade your repository to use the new executables by following the upgrade instructions in Chapter 2 of the Linux install guide for 2.4 after finishing your installation. The upgrade instructions in the Linux install guide for 2.4 are valid for Mac users as well.

If you are new to GLASS, you might want to take a look at the Getting Started with GLASS page for additional information about installing and setting up your GLASS installation.

GemTools 1.0-beta.8

With GemStone/S 64 you should use GemTools 1.0-beta.8.

If you already have a GemTools 1.0-beta.6 image, then you should update to 1.0-beta.8. Otherwise, I recommend that you download the GemTools 1.0-beta.8 for 244 One-Click image.

You may also build your own GemTools 1.0-beta.8 image.

GLASS 1.0-beta.8.1

The extent0.seaside.dbf that ships with has GLASS 1.0-beta.8.1 pre-installed. GLASS 1.0-beta.8.1 does not have Seaside or any of the other GLASS add on projects loaded. The following projects are loaded by default:
