This is mostly a bugfix release, though it does have a few visible changes.

Bug fixes:

* All built-in packages can be disabled with a configure option like --disable-gdbm or --disable-complex.

* Fixed bugs in the distributed gnu-smalltalk.pc file.

* Improved portability to Solaris.

* Many bug fixes to UDP sockets. In particular, datagrams received from a socket can be placed directly onto another socket using #nextPut:.

* Each test in the testsuite has a 1-minute timeout.

Other changes:

* All tools support --verbose.

* Many improvements and bugfixes to VisualGST.

* The undocumented DynamicVariable class in GNU Smalltalk 3.2 is now documented, but with a small change in the implementation. The #defaultValue class method is not present anymore, and is replaced by #valueIfAbsent:. Subclasses can override #value to obtain the effect of #defaultValue. The class has also been rewritten and is much faster now.

Thanks to everyone who tested this release and its predecessor, especially (in alphabetic order) Gwenael Casaccio, Rick Flower, Holger Freyther, and the Sebastien Audier/Nicolas Petton duo.
