Eclipse Extended For Smalltalk Developers


Yesterday saw the release of the open beta of GemDev, an Eclipse-based IDE for GemStone Smalltalk developers. This is the first public release, and is intended for time-limited testing and evaluation. GemDev was developed with the aim of providing Smalltalk developers with mainstream tools, and features automatic highlighting, customisable colouring of syntax elements and an object inspector with explorer-like structure.

There is also currently attempts to implement Smalltalk on the JVM, leading one blogger to comment “there’s a lot of interesting “break the traditional metaphors” work going on, which is good – stagnation is death.”
