Syx 0.1.2 has been released


this version of Syx has a bunch of new features added to the Smalltalk
environment, and a more stable VM. Major enhancements includes:
  • New compiler flags to build Syx on Mac OS
  • Added Sets and Bags
  • Refactored objects to hold both instance variables and indexed variables
  • Literals in methods are now constant
  • Added basic WriteStream
  • Doubled initial memory size to hold 20000 objects
  • Fixed ByteArray/String small integer to character conversion
  • Added object finalization by fixing GC transactions
  • Added support for infinite-precision numbers using GMP
  • Integer overflow checks when doing sum, difference, multiplication and bit-shift

Note that Syx can be compiled also without GMP. Eventough you use an
image containing LargeIntegers, Syx will run without problems but won't understand that
