Hi Jaromir --

> Is this supposed to really translate Squeak to so many languages? It sounds like a huge amount of work to update it, not speaking about maintenace...

Well, Google Translate can help us. During the last months, we added a lot of new #translated calls and tweaked several texts in Squeak. Those updates are not yet reflected in our locale files.

Here are the languages I think we might be able to update:
- English
- German
- French
- Japanese (Hi, Yoshiki! =)

The other's would be dropped for Squeak 6.0.

Hi Herbert,
Yes, my bad… I normally use 7-zip and for a reason unknown to me I didn’t use it to unzip Squeak 
Thanks and sorry for the noise,

Hi Jaromir,

on my 3 year old laptop, Win 10 7-zip extracts a 5.3 in about 2 seconds
to the SSD and about 4 seconds to the magnetic HD.
