I just installed the latest release and everything went fine. Thanks Thomas
for the excellent work!

For some reasons, the last files of AosOberon.zip are missing. In fact, they
are in the zip file, but Oberon's zip application stops after Zip.Obx and
forgets the last few files including OFSTools.Obx.

OFSTools.Mod is part of the release, so recompiling it do the job.

There is some documentation available on www.bluebottle.ethz.ch; if you are
looking for more insights that you could have a look at Pieter's
dissertation (available in pdf on his homepage).
