When I use Eclipse and Java I still like the nice eUML2 AddOn Tools as they allow to define quickly a conceptual model in UML. It's also the only tool I've found for Java that is able to support roundtrip engineering and that allows you to keep close to the code while still doing modeling.

DynaCase for Pharo looks promising but such roundtrip tools are still missing in the Pharo tools universe.

Unified IDE

Lots of new editors for JavaScript appear - Atom, Brackets, ... and now Nuclide.

The web page of the last one tells us that Nuclide is a "A unified IDE". Hey - wake up! It is just a fancy editor - nothing more and I really wonder if these guys have ever see a real unified IDE with browsers, refactoring tools, test runner etc.

Eliot provides new Cog VM binaries.

What is cool about it this time: the busy VM developers now added the ARMv5/ARMv6 Cog Spur JIT VM! It has been tested on Raspberry Pi running Raspbian - feel free to help testing also on other ARM based Linux systems.

Read more here and here or just download and try:

Note that this is for ARM v5/v6 and v7 systems. And before I forget to mention: if you quickly need a 64bit VM for ARM v8 architecture just send $1,000,000 to Tim

Sven provides a nice demo that shows how to use his new project NeoConsole, a command line (REPL) interface, to interact with and control a running, headless Pharo image.

The video also shows how to start from scratch, downloading Pharo, installing NeoConsole, running a headless image with the REPL installed in the background. Next, an HTTP server is added to the image and later a specific response is added as well.

Short summary: Pharo is well suited for maintaining cloud and web based applications as it allows live interaction even after deploying.
