Ok the ones I build from time to time based on the original source  
code are carbon base, these have the golden icon, they follow the  
naming pattern

Squeak 3.8.18beta4U.app

Squeak 3.x.xbetaxU.app

Historically all the VM's are beta, 3.x.x at one time followed the  
image when the image did contain the source code, but for many years  
this is no-longer the case and
3.8.x  is the most current version.

betax,  beta1, beta2, beta3 usually indicates a minor fix,
3.8.17, 3,8,18  usually indicates a major change of some sort.
The U  is for universal.

You can find more current ones at ftp://ftp.smalltalkconsulting.com/
even more older ones at http://homepage.mac.com/johnmci/FileSharing.html
Most macintosh VM can also be found at ftp://ftp.squeak.org/

The headless option is fairly new (couple of years old) to the carbon  

  The other VM source is based on the unix source tree and has a blue  
icon. Those can be found at
