Installing the pharo vm under Ubuntu is just a matter of:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cassou/pharo
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pharo-vm

Recent changes:

- latest VM packaged
- separation between pharo-vm-core (few dependencies) and
pharo-vm-desktop (depends on pharo-core + opengl + x11 + cairo)
- no more warnings from the packaging systems
- pharo man page
- no more embedded libraries (pcre and libjpeg) (thanks to Esteban Lorenzano)

Todo list:

- make Pharo a graphical executable that lets user create and launch
images (more on that in my next email)
- see if Debian would be interested in including this package
