What do we need to do to move towards a new official release?
The current release is looking out of date?
Will integrate the latest and make a release next week! Thanks a lot for the contribution! - sent via Hojoki
Great news !
Will the next release include SCoop, do you know?
Still figuring out the right syntax for scoop! ;)

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.
Integrate with latest main! ;)
