STON integrated into Pharo 5

While recently Pharo 4 was pushed out of the door the community is really busy to prepare Pharo 5.0 as a next iteration. In update 50072 pushed out today there is now STON support integrated.

STON refers to Smalltalk Object Notation. STON is a lightweight text-based, human-readable data interchange format for class-based object-oriented languages like Smalltalk. It can be used to serialize domain level objects, either for persistency or network transport. As its name suggests, it is based on JSON (Javascript Object Notation). It adds symbols as a primitive value, class tags for object values and references.

If you would like to know more read the STON paper.
