It’s packed with bugfixes within and for Seaside (i.e. changes to Grease) and is intended to give users the chance to see how Seaside in VA Smalltalk is evolving. I havent’t played with it yet, but in another post on the Forum John said the Seaside port includes all bugfixes of Seaside Alpha 5 as of Wednesday last week (March 10th, 2010). This would mean that quite a few problems I’ve run into should be gone. There are some other fixes as well, but Seaside seems to be the current main focus at Instantiations.
Hope it’s not too long before we can welcome Beta 1 and soon afterwards also a VAST port of it. This will be a great day since we’ll be part of the Seaside family and can hopefully welcome lots of new users to VA Smalltalk 😉
