Before you all get bored during the weekend: I uploaded a new version of Einstein to messagepad.org. It's Alpha and MacOS only for now, so expect crashes and unexpected behavior. It has two little improvements: you can simply drag .pkg files from a website to install them (just drag the link (must end in .pkg) from your browser onto the Einstein window). Also, if you select text in Einstein and drag it to the edge of the Newton screen, the text will be available to paste into any other application on your desktop (MP2100US ROM only ATM).
But the fun starts here: Einstein now comes with a small developer environment built-in. Just select [Window - Toolkit], and off you go, writing new NewtonScript apps. No Basilisk or NTK required.
And yes, it includes the first rough version of the Decompiler. Just load an existing .pkg file, and the Einstein Toolkit will generate a NewtonScript file for you. If everything went as expected, simply press Apple-R, and Toolkit should recompile your code into a package and run it on Einstein.
Have fun, and let me know how it goes!
