Thinly Sliced: Versioning with Monticello 2

Colin Putney



Monticello 2 is a ground-up rewrite of Squeaks native versioning system. It features sports a brand new versioning model, a redesigned user-interface, and improvements in performance and scalability. This demonstration will be about how to use Monticello 2 for practical software development. We'll look at the user interface, and take a peek at what's going on behind it. We'll also review the unique features of Monticello 2 and where it differs from other Smalltalk versioning systems.
