Adventures in Alan v3

Alan v3.0 alpha 9 is now available. 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!). And we promise that this will be the last alpha before going beta. Primary reason for this alpha release was clarification of licensing. You can view the details of the changes in the Changes section.

The Alan IF website has just been converted to another CMS (Content Management System). MiaCMS seemed to be dying, so we made the jump to Joomla. Joomla seems to be the most promising descendant of Mambo (from which MiaCMS also sprung), with a lot of extensions. The move was actually quite painless once the database migration of the articles was figured out. And of course the layout had to be redone as well. But that also turned out quite nice, don't you think?

Alan 3.0 Alpha 7, probably the last alpha release, is now available for Windows, MacOSX & Linux. Download here and read about the changes here!

The standard library has been updated to correct a problem where items worn could not be accessed. You can download it from the Download Alan v3!.

The AlanIDE has been rebuilt and some minor issues fixed. It also sports a crude "Correct Indentation" function in the editor menue.

It is now at v0.0.8. You can download the new version from the AlanIDE area of the Alan Home Pages,
