I will use 3.10 for development and test on 3.8, 3.8.1 and 3.9 . I will
support earlier versions on a request basis. As for encodings, the
latest stable version includes a patch provided by Philippe that makes
encoding handling in Seaside easier. I am also considering exploring the
possibility of moving part of Seaside's encoding handling logic to Kom.

According to Philippe Marschall, the new KomHttpServer 7.0.5 that I've
just published on Squeak Map makes WAKomEncoded39 unnecessary. Can you
reproduce the same bug using WAKomEncoded, too? In case, would you mind
posting the bug report and the suggested fix on Mantis?
