thanks a lot Udo. 
We really appreciate that.

I was in contact with nicolas about SmalltalkHub. They were trying to see if they could build a complete pharo solution for the back-end.

Before making this public I'd like to get some feedback on it's speed and reliability - especially if you are far away (in terms of hops and bandwidth) from the real squeaksource server.

I'd like to gather some questions that have been raised in the last few days (thanks Nabble!) and give answers / share my thoughts. I'll try to keep it brief.

I don't know why ObjectAsMethodWrapper (apparently) is no longer in 1.4 but I would highly recommend including it as it is a very useful package. I thought even the profiler used it. In any case, I welcome any contributions on how to make it work for 1.4

I guess that some of you must be much more knowledgeable at preferences settings/user interfaces et al. so what would take you 10 minutes would take me a day ...
