Chronos Version B1.167 Published

Chronos Version B1.167 has been published ("Beta Release 1--build 167".) Chronos B1.167 is available for both VisualWorks and Squeak. The Chronos Seed Archive for B1.167 is also available (the "Chronos Seed" is the platform-independent Chronos codebase, used for porting Chronos from VisualWorks to other Smalltalk pltatforms.)

Chronos Version B1.167 can be obtained from the Chronos Web Site. The VisualWorks version can also be obtained from the Cincom Public StORE Repository. Or you can use either the direct download link for VisualWorks or the direct download link for Squeak.

The Chronos Time Zone Repository is included in the download archive. Be sure to follow the Chronos Installation Instructions--especially if you have not already done so for a previous version of Chronos.

If you are reinstalling Chronos into an image in which an earlier version is already resident, and do not install the new version from the Cincom Public StORE Repository using StORE, it is necessary to first remove the earlier version. StORE has been able to correctly install the new version on top of every earlier version I have tried--but I haven't tried them all.

About Chronos Version B1.167

Chronos Version B1.167 includes no new functionality, nor any bug fixes (at least, not in the usual sense.) The changes in this version are either 1) the removal of unused methods, 2) repackaging for the purpose of making it easier to port Chronos, or 3) changes motivated by issues discovered when porting Chronos to other Smalltalk environments.

A port of Chronos to a third Smalltalk environment may be announced soon.

Also, I expect that updates/enhancements/changes to Chronos will be few and infrequent (or perhaps nonexistent) for the next month or so.
