Hi people, 3.0.1 is basically ready. There are a good deal of bugfixes, the good news being that almost all of them are *not* regressions from 2.3.6 but were also present in older releases. In particular:

* bug 103 (making documentation when libraries are absent) is a regression

* fixed crash on LargeInteger>>#divExact: (I didn't post the patch here) is a regression

These other changes are not regressions:

* added SequenceableCollection>>#atRandom and String>>#allOccurrencesOfRegex:

* eliminated possible infinite loop in CompiledCode>>#hash.

* fixed Symbol>>#numArgs for methods starting with an underscore.

* fixed problems with substitution of regexes that match the empty string.

* fixed problems with very short delays.

* fixed segmentation violation when gethostbyname returned NULL.

* test failing on Alpha is not a regression, it only started to fail because coverage improved

This makes 3.0 even more solid than I had expected.

I don't have time to do the release today (nor will I in the weekend), so I'm asking for a little helping hand. Would anyone of you please go through the documentation (classes.texi or and document methods saying "Not commented"? In some cases they are pretty obscure, in some cases you can simply add "private - " to the category and gst-doc will omit them.

Patches against git are welcome. Let me remind you that you can also grab the latest published stable snapshot with

wget -O smalltalk-3.0-latest.tar.gz \
