Squeak is a Smalltalk dialect and a programming environment created by many of the original Smalltalk authors. Its first edition was released in 1996, and it's currently at version 3.9, with a 3.10 version under development. It has spawned many related projects, both non-commercial (such as Squeakland, Croquet, Scratch, Sophie) and commercial (Plopp, DabbleDB). It's also the main developer platform for the Seaside web framework. The Squeak community is helped by the Squeak Foundation, a small organization dedicated to support Squeak's development. The Squeak Foundation will be incorporated as a 501(c) non-profit during 2007. The Squeak Foundation takes care of all the bureaucratic tasks for the community (providing funding for server and connectivity costs, etc.); all the other tasks and problems, including technical ones, are handled by the community.
