We're about to forward a number of new updates that may rock your world.
This time it's a complete change in how alignment works. Basically, every morph becomes capable of aligning its submorphs in various ways, and the old class AlignmentMorph becomes unnecessary. This is a wonderful thing, because it means that you are no longer tied to the AlignmentMorph hierarchy when you want that kind of functionality.
We've (mostly Andreas) done the best we could to preserve existing code and applications, but there's definitely a chance for some turbulence in the forthcoming updates.
If you're a lamb, don't update for a while.
If you're a lion, it's should be a fun Thanksgiving.
(Have you noticed? Morphic is being rewritten, and you haven't been asked to get off the bus... ;-)
