Dear Smalltalkers,

AIDA/Web 5.6 was just released, on Squeak and VisualWorks. This version 
is a base for forthcoming Aida/Scribo, which will be a CMS (Content 
Management System), with a core and some plugins: wiki, website, forum, 

More about Aida is on http://www.aidaweb.si and you can download it 
here: http://www.aidaweb.si/download.html.

What's new in 5.6?

   - class SwazooAida for easier start: just doit SwazooAida demoStart
   - run on all interfaces, any host: SwazooAida startOn: somePort,
     useful for running behind load balancers
   - enhanced reliability and performance serving directly to
     the Internet
   - multilingual support for serving domain objects in many languages
   - Party/Role framework for modeling complex relationships among
     different parties (persons, companies). Useful among other for more
     complex security scenarios
   - upgrade to Prototye 1.6.0, Scriptaculous 1.8.0
   - more understandable reorganization of packages

I hope that this release will be another step towards making a Smalltalk 
the best platform for most demanding web applications.

Best regards
