You would have to install the above package from Squeakmap to run the 
"graphics test" I mentioned, but please note it's alpha, so install to a 3.9 
image without important stuff.

I am not sure this is a good "graphical test", it does create graphs, so it 
should have some value, it is non-interactive graphics though. Apart from 
that, 3.9 feels as good as 3.7 here, but as you said .. it's my feelin' only
