This is the first alpha release of delta streams, a change management
and distribution tool.

Delta streams aims to be a compelling replacement to change sets
and the update stream. Delta streams are analogous to the
update stream, and deltas are analogous to change sets. A more
complete feature comparison is at
http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/DeltasVsChangeSets

Please note that this is an alpha release, and not all features we
have been bragging about are implemented. For the rundown, see
http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6013

========== Installation ==========

DeltaStreams 0.1 is available for Squeak 3.9, Squeak 3.10, and Croquet.
It is available as a .sar installer for each platform. It is not
available through universes at this time.

- Get the .sar from http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6013
- drop it into the image, or load it with the file list
- If you get a popup asking whether to automatically define the pool
  dictionary EditorSubjectPool, answer no. This only seems to happen on
  Croquet
- When you get a popup asking which tool set you would prefer, answer
  #StandardToolSet, not #PlusToolSet
