Dave Lewis uploaded a new version of VMMaker to project VM Maker:

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

Ancestors: VMMaker-dtl.185

VMMaker 4.3.0

Adopt oscog support for method annotation (Pragma) directives in Slang code generation. The following pragma keywords are supported and are backward compatible with their message send counterparts:

Add unit test coverage for Slang generation. Verify that Pragma directives generate C code identical to that for message send directives. Tests cover C code generation for SmartSyntaxInterpreterPlugin, InterpreterPlugin, and Interpreter.

One test is currently failing (SlangTest>>testInterpDeclareStatic), indicating that the #static: directive has no effect for the main interpreter (it does work as expected for plugins). This does not affect VM code generation, and probably reflects a pre-existing condition.

Unit tests require package SlangBrowser (from VMMaker repository on SqueakSource).
