Hi Florin,

I did another configuration update at http://source.squeak.org/VMMaker/update-dtl.27.mcm

This fixes ss3.gemtalksystems.com to use http rather than https and also updates the package dependencies.

I should note that the "VMMaker updateFromServer" update stream is no longer reliable, as it can bring in new package versions that only work on opensmalltalk-vm. Right now, Balloon3D- Plugins has that problem, but it's a bit of an ongoing maintenance problem. Nevertheless, if you directly load update-dtl.27.mcm in a Squeak 4.6 image, you should get a working interpreter VMMaker tool for code generation by evaluating "VMMakerTool forUnix".

Hi Dave,
Thank you for the prompt reply and fix. It does not work yet, as the new address uses https and the code has a check "urlString beginsWith: 'http://'", can we use http instead?

Hi Florin,

Thanks to Marcel for identifying the issue. The ss3.gemstone.com repository has a new address at ss3.gemtalksystems.com, so I updated the VMMaker 'update' configuration to point to this new address.

The latest configuration map at http://source.squeak.org/VMMaker/update-dtl.26.mcm should be working again now.

Please reply here if there are any further issues, and thank you very much for reporting the problem.

It looks like ss3.gemstone.com has gone off line for some reason, I can't even ping it right now.

If it does not come back we can put a copy of those packages somewhere else for safe keeping.

For the last couple of weeks, I cannot load anymore Dave's "update" lineup in VMMaker, because of some packages stored on ss3.gemstone.com (FreeType and FreeTypeConstants). 
I get a ConnectionRefused: Cannot connect to #[204 246 122 142]
This used to work. Has something changed, or am I doing something wrong?
Thank you,
