I would like to announce first development release of StepTalk

What is StepTalk?

StepTalk is Smalltalk interpreter for GNUstep. It is meant mainly for
scripting GNUstep apps or for talking to registered named DO objects or apps. 

Some features

    - Smalltalk syntax 
    - scripting environments 
        allow/deny selectors for particuliar classes (you can deny methods for
        untrusted scripts, that can make damage your files (overwrite or
    - map binary selector to normal selector, so you can then write: 
                          ('Hello ', name, '!') print.
    - block closures 
    - exception handlig
    - additions to GNUstep classes instead of using own classes 
      (NSArray do:,  select:, detect:; NSNumber to:do:...) 
    - one or more methods in script 

        talk to GNUstep-DO objecs and apps 
        executes scripts in GNUstep environment

In the source package you may find some examples. One of them is GNUstep
plparse tool written using StepTalk.

It is available at http://decef.elf.stuba.sk/~urbane/StepTalk

This release is mainly for developers.

Any questions, comments and bug reports are welcome,
