[self-interest] Fw: [Ann:] Self4Linux-0.2.0 alpha available

thanks for the feedback, I'll include the changes in the next release.
I think most of the original source code is from 1995 or earlier, and the
c++ standard and compilers have changed since then - therefore the warnings.
I tried to change the original code in as few places as possible, to make it
to diff/merge against the original code.
Note that the debug version also contains a lot of assertions that will slow
the VM. I mostly use the optimzed version when im working in Self, and when
crashes, I try to reproduce the bug in the debug version.

This is great!
I was able to compile the source from your source tarball with two changes:
I added #include <time.h> to this file.
I also added #include <time.h> to this file.
With those two changes, I was able to compile. I get several warnings with
G++. My guess is that the code has not been updated for newer (stricter)
I generated the debug executable so that I might have a chance with GDB if
Self crashes. It took about 15 minutes of CPU time to generate the initial
image :-( This is with an Intel P-II 400 PC with 384MB of RAM.
I am using SuSE 7.2, but the kernel is 2.4.7.
The UI comes up, but is rather slow even on the third or fourth time I do an
action (just bringing up the middle-mouse menu takes a couple of seconds).
Now, I have to find where I put my Self documentation...
Thanks again for this Christmas present!
Where do I send the beer money?
