Fedora Update Notification

Name        : gnu-smalltalk
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 3.1
Release     : 8.fc11
URL         : http://www.gnu.org/software/smalltalk/smalltalk.html
Summary     : GNU Smalltalk
Description :
GNU Smalltalk is an implementation that closely follows the
Smalltalk-80 language as described in the book `Smalltalk-80: the
Language and its Implementation' by Adele Goldberg and David Robson.
The Smalltalk programming language is an object oriented programming

Unlike other Smalltalks (including Smalltalk-80), GNU Smalltalk
emphasizes Smalltalk's rapid prototyping features rather than the
graphical and easy-to-use nature of the programming environment.

Therefore, even though we have a nice GUI environment including a class
browser, the goal of the GNU Smalltalk project is currently to produce a
complete system to be used to write your scripts in a clear, aesthetically
pleasing, and philosophically appealing programming language.
