  While ago, we made an experimental version of Etoys image based on
the OLPC code base but for non-XO environments.  We made another
iteration of it and upload it to:


  The image is based on the latest Etoys image, the suggestions from
Subbu about fonts and README wordings are incorporated, and OggPlugin
is included.  We may still change the initial screen (what do you
think if we should start with a screen with clouds or a blank screen?)
but the code should be almost in good shape.

  Hopefully, this will be the basis for the new version of Squeakland.

  For non-English version, the translation need to catch up as we have
been changing code in the image, but we can't wait for translations
too long.  The current plan is that the packages for other languages
are made gradually, and in one way or another (replace the file on the
squeakland.org or make a web server dedicated for different language
community and put the package for it on the server) they will be
accessible to the user.
