Dear Squeakers,

welcome to the The Weekly Squeak Summary, a weekly report on what's
going on in the world of Squeak based on the Weekly Squeak blog.

This issue is assembled by a not-yet jetlagged Michael who is looking
forward to meeting some Smalltalkers at OOPSLA in Portland, Oregon.

Highlights of the week:

Ian Piumarta's Pepsi [1] is an exciting environment for implementing
statically-compiled dynamic languages, possibly the foundation for a
future implementation of Squeak...?

The process for working on the planned release of the 3.10 image is
being actively discussed [2]. The discussion started out with Göran
Krampe's suggestion to make the development process more
community-oriented. Entailing the discussion, the Squeak Foundation
Board have decided to establish a release team [4], for which
volunteers are sought [5]!

Last week's news items:

[1] Dynamic messages: a tour of Pepsi

[2] Process Woes

[3] Squeak: toy or instrument?

[4] Squeak Foundation Board meeting notes - October 18th, 2006

[5] Call for release team volunteers

[6] Recent package releases and announcements

[7] An optimization example

[8] self vs. super
