We are happy to announce Moose 5.0:
*http://moosetechnology.org/#install*


Description
---

This is by far the most extensive Moose release to date. Just take a look
at these two trailers.
- Spotter: https://vimeo.com/113832673
- Inspector: https://vimeo.com/103463364

The key highlights are:
- It is based on Pharo 3.0.
- Roassal2 is a complete reimplementation of the core visual engine of
Moose.
- Roassal2 replaced Roassal, EyeSee and Graph-ET, and it features many new
things including smooth animations, new composeable builders and several
new layouts.
- All built-in Moose visualizations use Roassal2.
- Glamour has been extended with a Pager browser and with Rubric as the
main text editor.
- GTSpotter is a new tool that makes it possible to find objects fast.
- GTInspector saw major usability improvements based on the Pager browser,
and it now comes with many object specific extensions.
- GTPlayground provides a new way to handle scripts and when combined with
GTInspector, it can replace the dedicated easels and editors.
- Moose Finder has been extended with the ability of handling in place
visualizations.
- GTDebugger has been strengthen and was made more robust.
- PetitParser has been extended with the notion of context which enables
elegant island parsing.
