Smalltalk news on all sides

While I often blog about news in the open source Smalltalk scene one additionally has to note that the commercial Smalltalk vendors are also playing well. Interesting news from Instantiations about upcoming VASmalltalk and similar news from Cincom about CincomSmalltalk appear regulary on the web. Nice!
