Does your planning also include formalization of a "Smalltalkish"
mechanism for communication and syncronization between various
headless embedded images on distributed hardware? I am anxious to see
the evolution of an easier way doing development in this area.
Also, have you given any thought to the development of automatic
generation of simulators for embedded software? I am wondering is
whether it is possible to develop a mechanism which would enable a
component to generate and return a simulator description in answer to
a message like component>>simulator. It can sometimes be a bit of a
pain to develop simulators and they tend to get out of date if not

It will be a new Behaviour language that is Smalltalk based rather than LISP
based. The tools will follow the same "style" as the standard Smalltalk

I'm not sure how much of a Squeak subset will be required/desired/included
but I am planning on using as much of a Smalltalkish syntax as possible.
My job these days involves working on an embedded Java project in a VxWorks
environment (see http://www.audesi.com) ... has there been any work towards
a headless, embedded real-time Squeak? This is another project that would
be interesting to pursue.
