> Hi Folks,
> I've successfully finished the Spur conversion of Cuis. I was able to
> merge all required changes to Cuis compiler and make it work in both
> ObjectMemories. Cuis is now offered in Spur and pre-Spur formats. And the
> best part is that they share 100% of the source code. There is no forking!
> This means that there is no extra work in maintaining both flavors. So, we
> are not leaving anyone behind. It also means that, at deployment, you might
> chose between better performance and larger memory (with Spur) or smaller
> footprint and SqueakJS compatibility (with pre-Spur).
> I've just updated our GitHub repo https://github.com/Cuis-Smallt
> alk/Cuis-Smalltalk-Dev . Included are Cuis4.2-2906-spur.image and
> Cuis4.2-2906.image, and, as usual, the whole update stream. I wrote a brief
> description of the Spur conversion at Documentation/SpurConversion.md, in
> case you want to reproduce it, or apply it to your own Cuis images.
> The images seem very stable. Please test them, load your code, and report
> any issues. This work was enabled by Eliot Miranda and the OpenSmalltalk
> team who develop Spur, VMMaker and the Spur bootstrap. Thank you folks! I
> also used Squeak 5 as a reference implementation of Compiler and related
> stuff. I also want to thank the greater Squeak community for it.
> Some cleanup is in order. The scaffolding I did for the conversion,
> including dual Compilers is still in the image. I'll be cleaning it soon.
> I'll also be able to pay a bit more attention to unrelated suggestions and
> ongoing discussion at cuis-dev at cuis-smalltalk.org
