It is going slowly. :-)     I'm doing a lot of things at the same time, 
like most people here, I guess. I'll made a release as soon as I'll have 
something interesting to show.

I'm working on independent morphics so you can use them for whatever 
else you want. There are already some nice music related morphics in 
squeak. But they're too tied to the built-in music functionalities which 
basically are just the midi protocol, sample playback and fm synthesis.

For other developers interested in this, there's a very easy to use 
foreign function interface to call whatever library you want from within 

Anyway my idea is to use squeak as some sort of interactive sequencer 
(but using mainly OSC instead of MIDI) where a squeak project ( a .pr 
file) will be the equivalent of a document.
