I've just downloaded the latest version of Pharo Launcher (1.5.1) so I can try out Pharo 7. However, upon running the Launcher, I noticed that Pharo 7 was still marked as a (development version), with Pharo 6 still at (stable). Is this intended, or should Pharo 7 be marked as (stable)? A screenshot, with the offending part highlighted:

+1 on this especially because the Pharo download page says, "For instance you can download "Official distributions" -> "Pharo 7.0 (stable)" which is the latest stable image as of today."

Or reword the download page to say "Pharo 7.0 - 32bit (stable)" if only the 32bit version is considered stable.

thanks for the report.
I just updated the sources list file to mark Pharo 7.0 as the stable version.
If you use the latest version of PharoLauncher, it should automatically update.

Are you sure? For me, it's still reporting Pharo 7.0 as development.

You need to have the option "clear templates at startup" activated and relaunch PharoLauncher

I do have that option selected. (Except on mine, it's 'Templates cleared at startup'.) I'm using PharoLauncher 1.5.1, if that's relevant.

I did some bug fixes on the development version. Could you give a try at it and tell me if it works better? http://files.pharo.org/pharo-launcher/8eac64c/

Yes; that works - thank you! (And it also seems to give me a new 'VM Manager' - should this also have been in 1.5.1?) Do you have any idea when this will be in a new release? It would be a horrible UX for a new user to download PharoLauncher and see the new version wrongly listed as development...

I need to test it a bit more. I think I will release it this week. The VM manager was not included in 1.5.1

Thank you!

(Side question: This may be impractical, but would it be possible to coordinate the Pharo and PharoLauncher release cycles in some way (if it's not done already), since PharoLauncher is the easiest way to run Pharo?)

When I downloaded the .msi file from here and tried to install it, it says I already have a newer version of PharoLauncher installed. I'm using 1.5.1. Is the Windows version patched to show 'stable' for 7.0 images?
