What do we need to do to move towards a new official release?

The current release is looking out of date?

Saw you playing with Scoop. Any thought?

It’s a few months ago now.

I merged the scoop stuff into my main branch to play with it.

A few students were impressed and found it much easier to program some tasks – flashing LEDs at different rates without having to think about it too much – playing some music but reacting to a button press. They are used to ‘Scratch’ and other simple event-driven environments – it’s just how they expect things to work.

It is obviously useful and does seem to work to some extent but I think it might be a big rewrite to get it working correctly. For instance, a variable’s declaration would need to change depending on where the variable is used – ‘volatile’ if used in a scoop loop? Quite a few of these sort of problems worried me, I wish I could remember what they were! Or I had discussed it at the time.

It seemed too much for my tiny programming skills, especially in the small amount of time I have for this :-(

Would love to hear more about your students' experience. I want to get this released in a month or two. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The issue of the variables are being worked on now. Also, love to get a better syntax for the event loop.
