The early releases included a subsystem called HyperSqueak, aimed more at end-user programming. All objects are situated, as in the Finder, and aliases serve the function of variables. Feel free to play with it (it has a simple drawing system and character recognizer), but do not expect any support, nor any degree of compatibility in future versions.

"By the way, about HyperSqueak. we may wel stop distributing it withevery realease (we would have with 1.16, except it was easier to leave it in). It uses space, and confuses the folks who are just wanting a decent Smalltalk. Also we probably won't be updating it each time, except posibbly to release another major step some time in the future."
And on Dec 12, 1996:
"Second, beginning with 1.18, we will no longer distribute HyperSqueak as a part of the Squeak image. If this is important to you, save your latest image and work with the deltas, and feel free to communicate with us regarding our work on and your interest in HyperSqueak. This will simplify the process of explaining and releasing Squeak for us, and also makes it a bit easier to focus on one of our goals which is to produce a lean and yet flexible O-O kernel."
