23 March 2017:

*    Fixed (again!) build process for linux (libssh2 version was not correct).

22 March 2017:

*    I made another pass to some problems on *icebeg>* : added a new “branch browser” to compare sources from remote
branchs and added a couple of fixes to make the system a bit stronger… still working on this 🙂

*    I spent some time again on VM building, where a couple of issues arised:

=== Build windows VM with cygwin instead mingw
[Nico Cellier](https://github.com/nicolas-cellier-aka-nice) moved the [OSVM](https://github.com/OpenSmalltalk/opensmalltalk-vm)
to cygwin as part of his effort to produce Win64 VMs (and to align PharoVM with the other VMs flavours built).

This was a cool work, but it requires some work for our side to properly build the [PharoVM](https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-vm).

=== Fix a problem with SDL2 and linux
SDL2 version was upgraded, but there was a remaining problem when building it, so I needed to track down the
problem and fix it.

Overall, the process are ok now… nevertheless I cannot merge the changes to make them available for users
because with latest VM sources there are some problems here and there (not all tests pass). So I’m waiting
for Eliot 🙂

20 March 2017:

*    I added edit of repositories to [Iceberg](https://github.com/npasserini/iceberg) 🙂

This is usefull when you make a mistake and do not locate sources properly when cloning or when you want to
re-locate repository after moving it in your disk.
