Squeak Oversight Board minutes – 02/07/12

by

Attending: Chris Muller, Colin Putney, Randal Schwartz, Chris Cunnington

– This was mainly an idea session for things to do for Squeak 4.4

– Project ideas such as OmniBrowser, namespaces, and building small images (from a larger mother image) were explored

– The introduction of new ideas prompted discussion about the importance of moving in incremental steps when breaking backward compatibility, so that the entirety of the Squeak community can reasonably move forward in stepwise fashion.

– A general question of how Squeak is relevant in 2012 was posited. While advances to the vm and image create greater computing power, what could be the next killer app?
