The new release is now available from and includes the following changes:

* Added new Sport package.

* SUnit testsuites can access variables defined on the command-line to gst-sunit.

* The ZLib deflation stream was rewritten and supports partial flushing.

* Added parser written in Smalltalk for GNU Smalltalk 3.0 syntax.

* Faster package loading, does not need InfoZIP anymore except when building gst.

* Rewritten DBI library with support for MySQL and Postgres, contributed by Mike Anderson.

* Includes bugfixes in 2.3.6.
