Hi everyone,

I downloaded the squeak-web-118 image on the seaside site and wondered 
why the system browser doesn't show all methods on the right when 
clicking on a class. Damien kindly answered my question along with 
another one about an error message loading the sources file when Squeak 

I expect others might have the same question so am posting back to the 
list the questions and answers.

In fact, this is not a problem of the image, this is a problem of the
new browser, namely OmniBrowser-Standard. It doesn't automatically
select the --all-- category currently. Everybody is waiting for that,
but the main developer is a bit slow.

You have 2 possibility:

- you can stop using OmniBrowser. On the top-left corner of all
browsers, you have a menu. This menu will let you choose your
preferred browser. Select the refactoring browser for example. Now,
you have to open your browsers going to 'world
menu'->'open...'->'refactoring browser'.

- my preferred solution is to continue using OmniBrowser as it is and
wait for this improvement.

This is because the image you downloaded is based on Squeak 3.9 and
the sources files has changed. Download SqueakV39.sources
(http://damien.cassou.free.fr/squeak-dev/) and put it with your
Virtual Machine or with your image. I preferred to put it with the VM
because I can forget about it after.

Hope I answered your questions.
