> Hi, I'm introducing Mars (just another world)
> Mars is a world for Squeak (and all it's forks) builded as an MVC on
> top of Cocoa (OSX framework) and OmniBrowser.
> For that reason, Mars just runs on OSX environments.
> While this project has some similariries with SqueakGTK and wxSqueak,
> it has big differences:
> 1) Mars is not a port of Cocoa for squeak, is just an MVC
> implementation who uses Cocoa. Why that "subtle" distinction? well,
> SqueakGTK is a full port of GTK+ library and for that reason, a little
> big a and a little too complex. I'm following simplicity as one of the
> project goals.
> 2) Mars is a plugin, and will run in any fork of squeak, and OB-Mars
> (Mars world) will run in any fork of squeak who can load OmniBrowser.
> This is a big difference with wxSqueak, wich is a fork it self (and
> requires an special VM)
> And of course, while both efforts (SqueakGTK and wxWidgets) are cool,
> none of them can be executed (and won't ever be) in small
> environments, like the iphone, which is one of my main objectives
> (using John's new VM and Edgar's work on minimal image building)
> Mars is MIT and can be downloaded following instructions from here:
> http://www.smallworks.com.ar/productos/Mars/Download
> For more details (history, blog, etc.), you can go to:

> DISCLAIMER: Right now, Mars is vere-very alpha stage (though it runs
> and can be used) and I would love any contribution in the form of: bug
> reports (there will be a lot now), feature requests, comments, and of
> course, code :)
> Cheers,
