Well, 3.1 is not really a development branch: it is clearly intended to
be the next stable branch. The first release might not have been
perfect, but the author has made it clear that 3.1 is 'the way forward'
and that the 3.0 branch will be discontinued.
I will happily make a separate branch if there is even one smalltalk
user who wants to keep 3.0.x around (if you read this: please respond).
But otherwise I'm inclined to just drop 3.0 in the near future and let
people convert their programs.
For those interested, check out the 'Incompatible changes' section on
