A squeak3.4 VM will be needed

In this vein also.

It seems to me to be nice if there were a stable stream for vm updates 
as there are for the code updates.

Just like a user would click on "load code updates" there could be a 
mechanism in there which asks/informs the user of vm updates.

I would think most users who keep their image or apps updated might want 
to keep their vm up to date. In an update stream with the current Squeak 
handling the details would require the least of the user regarding vm 
maintainence. The server could have the ugly informational vm name, 
squeak3.2-5a.exe or whatever. But the update mechanism would install to 
the users system with the friendly name Squeak.exe and potential 
renaming the old vm.

Just a thought.
