They did show the workspace and debugger, and browsers are working, although yes, they aren't quite like the gbs browsers in that there's none of the code pushing facilities etc. But they do what browsers do, edit code and browse around. The only things not quite finished at the moment are inspectors and breakpoint support in the debugger from what I understand, I'm sure we'll know more details as soon as they get a chance to catch up on sleep ;)

The demo showed a Squeak image with a modified System Browser
that was able to browse the GemStone database. I don't recall
seeing a Workspace or Debugger onto GemStone, nor do I recall
seeing any code update being accepted from the browser running
in Squeak. There was a login window (probably implemented with
Morphic) that is the equivalent of the login window you'd see
in a VAST or VW GemStone client.

In the demo, a topaz window was used to start the Seaside server.

IIUC, the intention is that a Squeak image would be used
to browse/update, debug, and run doit's. This image would
not be a full GBS, like you'd have with a non-free VAST or VW
client - i.e. there won't be any transparent object replication
to the Squeak image, message forwarding, etc.

IIUC, the SqueakSource application was ported to run under
GemStone/Seaside, and any .mcz's uploaded to such a server
would be persisted by GemStone, instead of in the filesystem.
It's unclear to me how the .mcz would then be installed into
the GS server.
