Just for the record, the GNU Smalltalk arch repository is also available from

The archive name there is address@hidden; however, if you were already using my arch repository you don't need to switch anything because both repositories are synchronized.

As a benefit of this new set up (or rather, of me wasting an afternoon to set it up), GNU Smalltalk also has a CVS repository on savannah. You can check it out with:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/smalltalk co smalltalk

I've also committed a few interesting patches:
- implementation of Unicode characters and strings
- fixes for pipes on Mac OS X and improvements to FileStream (which do vastly fewer gratuitous lseeks, and know about the relatively new system calls pread and pwrite)
- move #fileIn from FileStream to Stream (which fixes a few other bugs)
- add the command-line parser that I posted a while ago

I'm inclined to do a beta very soon, and then release this as 2.3 directly. Sorry for skipping the 2.2.1 release that would have been necessary.
