Finally! Finally, Alan v3.0 alpha 8 is available. After a long period of only internal work on low speed some really great strides have been taken. The usual Windows and MacOSX versions of compilers and interpreters have been updated with what will definitely be the last changes before going Beta (planned for November 2010!). You can view the details of the changes in the Changes section.

But even more important is the new library! Through tremendous work by Anssi Räisänen the library has been upgraded to exceptional functionality, rivaling that of any other modern IF authoring system. Go to the Library section of the Download Area and have a look. It's all source so you can see how easy and elegant it was to create something so powerful with Alan v3. Why don't you start creating your works of Interactive Fiction in Alan v3? It will be easy and fun!

What They Say

"[the game] does not represent the real capabilities of the Alan Language but does demonstrate Alan's amazing ability to allow someone who has never done an iota of computer programming of any kind to produce SOMETHING within a few weeks!"
