Excellent works guys, Pharo 3 has really exploded in our faces, cant
believe the amount of bug fixes and new feature / libraries, if Pharo is
not proof that Smalltalk is alive and kicking ass , dont know what it is :D

I love the new site but to be fair that old one was very good too. The new
one however is a definite improvement.

Should we hope for a Blender wiki too ? ;D
