Definition of Squeak

All of the talk about nil vs. #nil leads me to wonder: where is Squeak
defined? As the language changes, where does one find the definition
for a specific release? If the definition of the #() array syntax were
to change, where would I be expected to look for the official

(This does not imply I am expecting anyone to maintain a formal
definition of the Squeak language, but I think the question is a
useful one to raise. I'd rather have Squeak central hacking neat stuff
and saying things like "Squeak release X.Y is like Smalltalk-80 except
for the things we changed in the past and we just added such and such
to be the definition of array literals.)
