I've been surprised that most of the mainstream discussion of Squeak has
focussed on the small-image/low-level-kernel aspects. There's been little
mention of the wonderful IDE, all the great media support, etc.

What is the sense for when things will be ready for prime time? What is
needed first? I'm working on a book using Squeak, as I know that others
