Strongtalk is now open source

Strongtalk is a very fast Smalltalk implementation with an interactive environment and optional static typing. It only ran on Windows. Sun acquired the company in the 90's, used the technology to implement the Java HotSpot JIT and killed Strongtalk. But now it is open source and hopefully can be maintained again, or at least inspire other language implementations.
