And what do you need a 3.9 VM for? I'm pretty sure you can happily  
run the 3.9 image even with a 3.7 VM. There haven't been major  
changes AFAIK.

That aside, I agree we need to get 3.9 VM sources into an easily  
findable place.

IIRC then the most recent Squeak VM for Windows can be found in the  
Croquet package. Not sure about the sources for that, might be in SVN?

Well, I doubt anyone did that, yet. If it works at all (not sure how  
unixy cygwin actually is) you'll have to run an X server to see  
anything ...
