No, but some tests do process all pending user-input events from Morphic but just wanting to process the deferred UI messages ... or trigger a redrawing or something like that.

Just the usual "multi-tasking illusion" ^__^

Hi folks,

I just updated my Squeak6.0 and on a whim I am running all the tests to see what happens.

Interestingly, while the tests are running (and no information/progress bar popup is in place) I clicked on the World and the World menu popped up.

Is squeak now able to multi-task?
