Hello,  I am wondering if the project is still progressing or what the roadmap might be? Thank you.

Well, there is a download posted, but I regret that I haven't installed it.  I was most interested in it a while back when I was doing more C# work.  Other than that, it's been a year since there was any activity.

As today, the roadmap is to create a stable version. This includes:
  • Finishing the runtime (currently 80% done)
  • Finishing the class library (currently 60% done)
  • Finishing the compiler and definition installer (currently 90% done)
  • Finishing the console host (currently 60% done)
  • Implementing development tools (Visual Studio Tools)
  • Writing documentation
  • Polishing
I expect the timeframe for this to be middle of Q4-2013.

Great to hear you are making progress.
I've been using Smalltalk for many years. I'm spoiled, as I am frustrated every time I need to use C#. It feels like Smalltalk is a word-processor and C# is an old typewriter.

A questions, will your implementation support Smalltalk Blocks? I'm hoping the complete Smalltalk language will be supported in IronSmalltalk. Please keep me informed and let me know if I can assist with testing. Thanks.

Can you please post an update about your progress and roadmap?
I am more a Smalltalker, than a C# or .NET person. When you get to a point where a Smalltalker can start programming, I would like to discuss contributing to this project.
