Beginner's question,
Dolphin Smalltalk 7.2.2 & 7.2.3

What is it with the latest updates to 7.2.2 & 7.2.3? I am unable to load my packages (.pac or .pax). Similarly, version 7.2.0 only loaded .pax packages.

Just checked as I haven't done so yet. Strangely, I get an error message:

Fetching DolphinVM.zip 7.2.3
Unable to fetch DolphinVM.zip 7.2.3

Has the 7.2.3 VM been released?

Even with DS7.2.0 / VM7.2.0, only '.pax' packages could be loaded.
And VM7.2.3 is still 'unable to fetch'.

There is no executable of VM 7.2.3 compiled and released yet. Just the source code. The script to download the latest VM will fail because it is not present. You will have to manually download VM 7.2.2 from here:
https://github.com/dolphinsmalltalk/Dolphin/releases/download/7.2.2/DolphinVM.zip and unpack it yourself in the Dolphin directory.

Issue solved.
The problem had to be local since nobody else seemed affected.
With your assistance and pointing to the VM, I reviewed the file associations and found out that the '.img7' files were still associated with an older 'Dolphin7.exe' located in some different directory, a legacy from an earlier v 7.1.19 installation. So although I had the right VM (v 7.2.2), it was not used at all and the older version was called each time I started Dolphin.
Silly mistake. No wonder I had problems; in fact, It's actually good it still worked at all!
That was an easy fix and things went back to normal.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Even with DS7.2.0 / VM7.2.0, only '.pax' packages could be loaded.
And VM7.2.3 is still 'unable to fetch'.

Just checked as I haven't done so yet. Strangely, I get an error message:

Fetching DolphinVM.zip 7.2.3
Unable to fetch DolphinVM.zip 7.2.3

Has the 7.2.3 VM been released?

Beginner's question,
Dolphin Smalltalk 7.2.2 & 7.2.3

What is it with the latest updates to 7.2.2 & 7.2.3? I am unable to load my packages (.pac or .pax). Similarly, version 7.2.0 only loaded ..pax packages.

Does downloading the latest VM help?
There is no executable of VM 7.2.3 compiled and released yet. Just the source code. The script to download the latest VM will fail because it is not present. You will have to manually download VM 7.2.2 from here:
https://github.com/dolphinsmalltalk/Dolphin/releases/download/7.2.2/DolphinVM.zip and unpack it yourself in the Dolphin directory.
You are welcome! My issue was that, with all the recent development being done, my installation of Dolphin would not even boot until I got the newer VM. I suspected that your issue might be related, but clearly it is not. The Dolphin website warns that Dolphin7 won't even boot if Dolphin6 is also present. It is a strange problem, because one would expect the image to be loaded by the nearest VM, not one in another directory altogether!
