(and many more)
I also thank specially the two people who followed me patiently through
the revival of GNU Smalltalk as I worked out the alphas that eventually
led to version 1.6: David V. Duccini (, who helped
a lot with his enthusiasm in the earliest phases of testing, as I grew
more comfortable with Steve's code, and Andreas Klimas, who made available
to me his knowledge of Smalltalk but, above all, his C and Unix expertise.
And of course, last but definitely not the least, Steve Byrne
(, for his feedback in discussing issues related to GNU
Smalltalk's implementation, for having put me in contact with all the
people asking him about GNU Smalltalk, and for sharing with me the
source code for his unpublished improvements to version 1.1.5 of GNU
Smalltalk. Steve, I sincerely hope you like what I do to your program.
