This week, Spotter got class comments and some tests (not perfect, but better), and we improved tests and comments there, and in consequence is now "ready" to release (ready in the sense of "quality enough", bugs and improvements can always be needed) :)

Short-term goals:

  • Improve quality and quantity of tests in StInspector
  • Improve quality of class comments in Spec2 framework.
  • Since we are in freeze mode: fixing important bugs on Pharo9 and its components (this issue will stay here until release).
  • include M1 in PharoLauncher

Medium-term goals:

  • Removal of GTSpotter
  • M1 VM release.
  • Release 9.0

Long-term goals:

  • Removal of remaining GTTools
  • Removal of Glamour
  • Removal if Spec1

Last week

  • StSpotter workflow was tweaked, looking for the right behavior. Class comments and tests were added.
  • NewTools settings are now exposed correctly in tools section of settings browser (is not just
    reorganise new tools settings and make them more clear in settings browser (there are not many anyway).
  • Fixed some memory leaks on Spec2.
  • The usual bugfixes and PR processing.

This week

  • more tests in StInspector.
  • verify showstopper bugs
  • update pharolauncher with urls for Pharo 9 and enable M1 VM
