For those who are interested, I have created a disk image of StepTalk binaries
for OS X. More information here:


Download from here:


I tried the disk image on 10.4 and StepTalking doesn't work.
So I try to compile from xcode.
I am not very familiar with xcode, and it complains a missing 10.4 SDK.
I simply remove it from "Get Info" and it compiles.
Both StepTalk.framework and StepTalking compiles fine.
But StepTalking complains the missing Foundation bundle.
And I cannot figure out how to build the Foundation bundle.
So I copy Modules/ and Language/ from disk image
into StepTalk.framework build by myself and it work fine now.
Personally, I prefer to use GNUstep-make, even on mac.
But my GNUstep-make is kind-of messed up.


Noteworthy changes in StepTalk are:

* New "document" based application called StepTalking - simple instant-messenger
like interface for talking to objects in StepTalk languages.
* Bundled default bundles (modules and the Smalltalk language) inside the
framework - not polluting Library directory any more with default installation
* Instance variable "Traits" in the Actors (STActor) (like traits in Self, but
does not work for methods at this moment, only for ivars)
* New steptalk resource management - search for bundles and languages in other
bundles or frameworks (STResourceManager)

Possible future by-product that could be included in StepTalk would be actor
builder application (or integration inside StepTalking application) or at least
actor building views to be integrated in other apps.

If someone wants the XCode project, let me know. It currently contains:
StepTalk.framework and bundled Foundation.bundle, ObjectiveC.bundle and the
Smalltalk language.

If you have any issues or questions, just write me.
