Since the bytecodes have changed, I was unable to try the 4.1.2 VM on the new snapshots (like I did with 4.1.4). I have the CDs to upgrade my machine to Solaris 2.8, but I haven't done it because I am not sure Self 4.0 would still work. And I still need to use that version once in a while to run old stuff. Does anybody know what is the lastest version of Solaris that can run Self 4.0?
I have just upgraded to Solaris 8 (or is that 2.8?) and Self 4.0 still works perfectly. And now I can run 4.1.5 as well. The reason I was afraid things might break is that little things like text selection didn't work in Self 4.0 on Solaris 6 as well as they did on older versions of the OS, so I thought I might have even more problems on an even newer version. I haven't done extensive testing, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
