alanide009Today the AlanIDE was released with some updates:

  • a toolbar and menu with the expected "Save" and "New" entries
  • the splash screen shows the actual version
  • the (unused and confusing) interpreter preference setting was removed
  • generated game files show up automatically in the navigator so that you can click on them to start the interpreter (as set in your operating system, same as when you double click on an .a3c-file in the file system)
  • updates over internet

The verify that updates over internet actually works, AlanIDE 0.0.9 has been configured to automatically and immediately update to 0.1.0 over internet, so actually it is AlanIDE 0.1.0 that has been released. If you don't get it to update on you initial startup, try quitting and starting again. And if that does not work, This email address is being protected from spambots.

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!"
