The version of etoys/squeak for the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) under  
development these past few months is called "OLPC1.0".  That version  
will continue to embody the official image for the etoys submission  
to the OLPC's B1 build this month.  This is now essentially frozen,  
but critical bugs may continue to be fixed as time permits, so some  
people may still want to keep, and to continue to load updates into,  
their OLPC1.0 Squeak images.

For ongoing, post-B1 etoys work, we've now established a separate 2.0  
etoys image for the OLPC, and an attendant update stream called  

You can get a 2.0 image either by evolving a copy of an existing 1.0  
image or by loading a fresh 2.0 image from a server:

(1)  Evolve any up-to-date OLPC1.0 image (update level 1102 or  
greater) into an OLPC2.0 image by installing the attached fileout,  
then loading updates, then saving the image.  (A copy of this fileout  
can also be downloaded from  http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/ 

(2)  Alternatively, there are pre-built etoys/OLPC2.0 images  
available for both the plug-in and the development versions on the  
tinlizzie server.  You can find them here:

   http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/etoys-2.0-1111.zip     -- plug-in version
   http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/etoys-dev-2.0-1111.zip -- development

Whichever way you obtain a 2.0 image, please remember to load updates  

The main portal for the OLPC is:


and there is a mailing-list for discussion of etoys on the olpc:

NOTE:  On the same tinlizzie server (http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/) can  
also be found up-to-date copies of OLPC1.0 images, which are  
currently at update level 1108:

http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/OLPCPlugin-1108.zip      -- plug-in version  
of OLPC1.0 image
http://tinlizzie.org/olpc/OLPC-Squeak-1108.zip     -- development  
version of OLPC1.0 image
