GemStone/S 64 18.104.22.168 was released August 28, 2012. This release fixes a number of bugs and we recommend all 3.x customers use this release. Be sure to review the release notes and install guides for this release.
GemStone 22.214.171.124 ships with GLASS 1.0-beta.8.7.2 pre-installed in
$GEMSTONE/bin/extent0.seaside.dbf, but there are a few minor issues that show up as test failures. GLASS 1.0-beta.8.7.3 has been released to address those issues.
You should update to GLASS 1.0-.8.7.3 when you start using GemStone 126.96.36.199.
A One-Click GemTools 1.0-beta.8.7 for GemStone 188.8.131.52 can be obtained from the seaside.gemstone.com downloads page or you can download GemTools 1.0-beta.8.7 for Gemstone/S 184.108.40.206 all platforms directly.
