I've push the latest cocoa based 32/64bit macintel/powerpc VM 

Various users pointed out that option-arrow key did not work.  Oddly I had marked moveWordForward/Back/etc as being required but couldn't figure out what the magic keystrokes were. 
5.2b3 fixes the problem. 

Look for the  folder experimental/64bits in the regular places found via http://smalltalkconsulting.com/squeak.html

file name:
Squeak 64-32 5.2b3.app.zip

This *beta* VM runs in 32 or 64 bit mode on macIntel, and 32bit mode on powerpc to support Squeak 32bit images.
Requires  os-x 10.5 or higher. 

iPhone VM 2.1.0 

The iPhone VM now uses the pharo1.0-10502-rc1dev09.12.2.image
The image feels faster, likely due to the ongoing Pharo optimization work. 

I note I can no longer build custom VM's for people's iPhones since I've exceeded the number of devices I can dedicate to 
iPhone development. People who have not use the iPhone VM in the past will need another developer to build a VM for them,
or will need to purchase Apple's iPhone SDK. 

For the moment source for both VMs can be found at http://isqueak.org
