We had the idea to try to do a summary of all the things that got merged during the week. I tried for a while an automatic tool (a Probot bot), but that only works for some weeks and then stops (I think they have some rate limiting problem for the bot).
And it was not really useful… as it just listed all PRs and Issues.
This one puts a focus on merged PRs to Pharo itself only and sorts them by category with a little bit of context.
Improvement to make the prior huge improvement on parsing of syntactically wrong code much more usable:
Several fixes to the parser and syntax feedback #7411 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7411
Lots of work has been done to unify all meta objects describing Variables into one hierarchy (see Variable and subclasses). This in turn enables many cleanups and simplification on the level of the name analysis of the Compiler and the API that the debugger uses to read Variables. Nearly finished, but some smaller steps remain:
Variable-scope-addTests #7435 (all Variable objects should know the scope where they are from) https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7435 Name Analysis: Lookup Slots In Class #7403 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7403 reduce-sends-doSemanticAnalysis #7402 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7402 7405-Debug-It-is-broken #7406 (this was a bad side effect of a refactoring needed to be able to move the call of #doSemanticAnalysis into the Compiler) https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7406
This is ongoing work to have a better class definiton for what is now called "slot enabeled class defintion" (the one where one can use First class Variables and where the Layout class is shown explicitly)
7444-Prepare-fluid-class-integration-part-4 #7445 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7445 7437-prepare-fluid-class-integration-part-3 #7438 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7438 7412-preparing-the-integration-of-fluid-class-part-2 #7434 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7434 7431-preparing-fluid-class-Part-1 #7433 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7433
Debugger-should-show-Workspace-bindings #7408 A try to simplify how the workspace binding is found when debugging. Leads to many problems, will be reverted. https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7408 7362-Package-Debugger-Filters-is-not-used-and-can-be-removed #7430 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7430 Added a closeAllDebugger method to trait TDebugger class, that users … #7328 (just a first step, not yet solved) https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7328 Exposing signalContext in Exception #7417 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7417
The compiler and the VM has support to make literals read-only. As the ability to change literals without the code reflecting it has lead to ugly bugs in the past, turning this on looks like a good idea:
SourceFileBufferedReadWriteStreamTest-readOnlyLiteral #7418 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7418 betterName-isSharedLiteral #7432 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7432 Enable-ReadOnly-Literals #7393 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7393
Background failures log in CI #7337 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7337 5956-Wrong-format-of-DoubleWordArray #7404 Ongoing work. All code is merged, but now we need to still see that we can create classes like that with the bootrap https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7404 Fix_for_PluggableSliderMorph #7415 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7415 7414-division-of-number-by-array-fails-with-doesNotUnderstand-isZero #7425 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7425 Cleaning integer division #7436 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7436
7367-pragmas-not-needed-textEditorShiftedMenu-fileListContentMenu #7426 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7426 Fixed #7420. Added transformation rules to some non-transforming deprecations that were identified as automatable in the Deprewriter paper #7427 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7427 7364-RBSelectorNode-has-unclassified-methods #7424 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7424 7416-Fileout-a-protocol-raises-a-DNU #7441 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7441 7365-DictionaryValueHold-removeKey-calls-a-non-existing-method #7407 https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo/pull/7407

Thanks, Marcus! Indeed this one seems much nicer :)
