Finish this experiment today. Now completion is perfectly integrated with the Spec+Gtk backend (and we can plug any completion engine we want) :) #Pharo
Last #esug Marcus Denker have a very interesting talk about open source and infinite games. Here the slides: https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/MarcusDenker/opensource-an-infinite-game
Pharo is moving away from representing instance variables and methods as strings. Instead, they're more powerful objects! https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/MarcusDenker/lecture-27685035
This enables autogenerating accessors, ORM style relationships, and easier static analysis of methods.
... and now we integrated Roassal2 (http://agilevisualization.com/AgileVisualization/Roassal/0104-Roassal.html) into #Pharo with the new #Gtk backend!
On thing that is still a mystery is why the GtkDrawingArea component crashes on MacOS but works on Windows. Something on how we are managing memory pages seems to be interfering...
In #Pharo we are working on our Gtk3 backend (will be available for public consumption soon). Now we started to adapt our graphics libraries, starting from the base: Trachel (http://agilevisualization.com/AgileVisualization/Trachel/0103-Trachel.html).
It is starting to look good:

I forget to say that I want to try other than ubuntu. Got tired of it... and also it needs to work fine with Parallels(macOS virtualisation).
Looking for a cool linux distribution for a desktop machine. One that I can use to develop and debug @pharoproject and its VM.
What do you guys recommend?
