==================== Summary ====================

Name: Kernel-dtl.1310
Author: dtl
Time: 6 March 2020, 7:29:11.316779 pm
UUID: 683e4e14-fc18-4d55-a776-eece91f579f5
Ancestors: Kernel-mt.1309

Change the Squeak default bytecode set to Sista in trunk.

Add CompiledCode>>multipleBytecodeSetsActive: to optionally inform the VM that Sista is in use, see VMMaker.oscog-dtl.2711 and http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/pipermail/vm-dev/2020-January/032441.html.

Add CompiledCode>>useSista: convenience method for switching to and from Sista bytecodes.

Package postscript activates the change to Sista bytecodes, which can be reversed by evaluating CompiledCode useSista: false.
