Terse Guide to the (new) GLASS Tools post has been updated.

Thanks to James, there is a one-click GemTools 2.4 download are two one-click GemTools preview downloads available based on Pharo. Use the 2.3.0 preview with version 2.3.0 of GemStone/S (like the 1.0beta11 appliance) and the 2.3.1 preview with version 2.3.1 of GemStone/S. [Updated 4/10/2009: see Version Mismatch (preview) for details]

GemTools Launcher

[Update 6/5/2010] For the latest GemTools 1.0-beta.6 documentation see  the GemTools Guide on the glassdb wiki.

This post started out as a beta update post, but as I added more and more material I realized that it deserved to be a reincarnation of the Terse Guide to the GLASS Tools. It’s been a year since I wrote the original Terse Guide and there have been significant changes to the whole GLASS tool set, so a new version has been long overdue. However, I do have an announcement post to finish (and it depends upon the information in the Terse Guide), so rather than delay the announcement of the preview release, I decided to publish the Terse Guide before it was complete.

I have completed all of the sections that describe the new functionality of the GemTools Launcher, including a section on installing the GemTools Client in a fresh image. Over the next week, I plan to finish the Terse Guide.

Over time as new features are added I intend to revisit and revise this post. To that end, I’ve created a little update section, where I’ll record information about the updates I make over time:

  • current as of GemStone-dkh.441 and GLASS.230-dkh.209 (March 12, 2009)
  • one-click GemTools download available, based on Pharo0.1 update 10243 (March 22, 2009)
  • Process Browser section updated as of GemStone-dkh.465 and GLASS.230-dkh.228 – Philippe how do you like the fonts? (April 14, 2009)

All of the screen shots in this post were taken using a Pharo image. The GemTools Client runs in both Squeak and Pharo images (see Installation and Update Steps for instructions on setting up an image).
