Can someone explain the differences between the two branches of VM on
offer at ftp://ftp.squeak.org/current_stable/mac/ ?

I understand that the 3.8 (yellow icon) branch is based on John
McIntosh's work found at
http://www.smalltalkconsulting.com/squeak.html and that the 3.9 (blue
icon) branch appears to be Ian Piumarta's work from
http://www.squeakvm.org/unix/ , but I can't find any information as to
which VM should be preferred and for what reasons.

Well, I do know that the new (great!) true-type font integration
requires John's VM, but I wonder are there any other key differences?
