Yes , you take the number and the version, it's true.
Also is true without you we still don't advance.

My complaint is .

I think backward compatibility have pros and cons.
But should be evident to any a image without Closures run some things and
one without NO.

I sure many still feel .cs have some mileage to work before we declare they
obsolete forever.

Repeat my point.

Also we should run all the test, eventually.

By the way, like my image?
I volunteer to do this each time (monthly maybe ?) and start to add packages

Image should going smaller and modular, we agree on this

I also have 
And use in this image Pavel start and I help all the SqueakLightII
See http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6056
I have videos of experimental loading Etoys.

It's valuable to community we some day have a consensual "Core", "Minimal",
"kernel" image.
Also each newbie should have a image as big as we could build without too
much glue.

This Fun do not have glue, only "sudor y amor"
