Michael has an update for us on the state of Seaside support in Cincom Smalltalk:
Two things we intend to do immediately upon releasing WV 1.0 is to upgrade from VisualWorks 7.6 to VisualWorks 7.7 as our base. There have been numerous improvements to Store that we desperately want to pick up, as well as general improvements to the product all-round.
The second thing we intend to do is upgrade from Seaside 2.8 to Seaside 2.9. Since the code freeze has been working reasonably well, I thought I'd take a break from doing example apps and start doing this port now.
It sounds like the Seaside team has been making life easier for the vendors as well:
Huge props to the Seaside development team - the testing framework they've put together makes this process very measurable! This afternoon I imported Seaside-Platform and Seaside-Tests-Platform and used it to start building Seaside-VisualWorks-Platform. I'm down to 8 failures and 8 errors of the 165 tests in this suite.
That's pretty amazing, compared to how previous ports of Seaside have gone. Sounds like things are going well on multiple fronts.
