> Pharo is a pure object-oriented programming language and a powerful
environment, focused on simplicity and immediate feedback.
> This is our most significant release yet. Here are some highlights:
> - Pharo is now provided in 64-bit version in Linux and OSX and brings
even better performance and stability (beware, 64bits version is a new
technology and a small amount of tests is still failing)
> - A new code changes management system named Epicea for easier reviewing
and recovering of your code easily
> - Integrated support for Git through an easy-to-use tool for repositories
and commits management named Iceberg (as a preview for Pharo 6, it will be
the default in Pharo 7)
> - The unified foreign function interface (UnifiedFFI) for interfacing
with the outside world is significantly improved
> - The PharoVM is now part of OpenSmalltalk initiative
> - Introduction of object immutability, alternative bytecode sets and
block closures independent of outer context
> - Pharo can now be bootstrapped from source code managed by Git
> - Pharo modularity is improved
> - Pharo is faster
> - The Dark Theme was improved and set as default color theme of Pharo

> These are just the more prominent highlights, but the details are just as
important. We have closed 1474 issues in Pharo 6.0 (a more complete
changelog can be found at https://github.com/pharo-
> While the technical improvements are significant (starting the transition
to 64bits is a remarkable achievement), still the most impressive fact is
that the new code that got in the main Pharo 6.0 image was contributed by
more than 80 people.
> Pharo is more than code. It is an exciting project involving energetic
people. We thank all the contributors of this release:
