Soon... see below for my plans.
I just added two new releases to SqueakMap.
One of them, marked as "published", is 2.5b3. This isn't very
different from b2; mostly it's an attempt to move some of the less
stable parts of Seaside out of the way. So:
- I've gotten rid of the WARendererCompat class, which reimplemented
all of the renderer protocol using the extremely-alpha Canvas system,
since it kept showing up confusingly in "implementors of" searches.
- I've put WAViewer back as the default CSS editor on the Halo, since
the Library-based system (and particularly its editor) still needs a
lot of work.
There's also at least one bug fix - the session timeout preference
should work again, thanks Radoslav and Adrian. I should point out that
his is a good time to remind me of other outstanding bugs or fixes.
The other release, marked "unpublished" is of a Seaside 2.6a branch.
So far, this is pretty much identical to 2.5b3, but I will be updating
the URL to point to new versions as they are committed. My short term
plans for this branch are:
- Adding the "forwarder" session finalization mechanism (see my recent
email to Andreas)
- Allowing custom object-snapshot implementations (as per Michel's
- Refactoring the style/script libraries to allow one class per
stylesheet instead of (or as well as) one method per (Rado)
- Completing the Canvas implementation.
- Starting work on localization.
By "short term" I think I mean "this week". No predictions on the
longer term stuff.
Does this all seem reasonable?
