Lukas Renggli is mostly responsible for the (excellent!) state of refactoring code in Squeak today. The original RB port was factored out into separate browser and engine packages, and the engine was incorporated into OB. Just recently, Lukas made a fresh port of some of the refactoring code from the most recent Refactory release. As far as I know, OB is the only browser for Squeak has supports refactoring - the "Refactoring Browser" package withered and died years ago.
