The genealogy graph created by Ivan Denisov is now in 
https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon#Historical_Perspective . 
Thanks to Ivan!

In the past few months someone commented about node colors and shapes 
denoting language, organization, system, compiler and workstation. 
I would have quoted the message but failed to find it.  A private 

If someone wants to improve the diagram, good.  The caption has a link 
to the DOT source oberongenealogy.gv. Rather than edit the SVG 
directly, please edit oberongenealogy.gv, update it in the book, 
render the new SVG and update oberongenealogy.svg in 
commons.wikimedia.org.  The revised image will appear in the book.

Experimental Oberon is an obvious possibility.  It requires a node 
for the language revision and a node for the compiler revision; 
correct? Andreas, if you send a revised oberongenealogy.gv or 
instructions, will do my best to incorporate properly.

I've also reorganized the information about Text to recognize 
differences between systems more realistically. The front page has a 
overview.  https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon#Oberon_Text 
System specific information is linked there.

Comments and complaints always welcome.

Thx,                          ... P. L.
