> Seaside add-ons
> The latest versions of SeasideAsync, SeasideScriptaculous and
> SeasideImageTools are expected to work fine with Seaside 2.7.
> SeasideTesting will probably not work at all in Seaside 2.7. Most of the

> VisualWorks 7.5
> VisualWorks 7.5 distribution CD includes Seaside 2.6 and adds-on
> deployed as parcels. These parcels are equivalent to the corresponding
> latest versions published on the public Store repository. The CD also
> includes parcels for a preview version of Seaside 2.7 which is only
> slightly behind the version from the public Store repository.
