The image on the website is 1.1w meaning it has the WindowsFileDirectory class which is needed to make it work on the Windows VM (it supports Mac and Windows). IIRC it lacks the UnixFileDir though (those are labeled “...u”).

John’s image only has MacFileDirectory, so I think this is actually the oldest released image found so far, and we should put it on the website.

Would be fun if someone looked at the changes file time stamps to reconstruct the evolution of early Squeak images ...
