I have been hard at work and have a surprise ready, that involves the romanian word for “not”, and the albanian word “gërvishtje”. Hopefully you have a good idea of what I am doing after you translate this
hehehehe NuScratch
Yup! I have everything ported *expect* for the custom blocks. Then I got bug hunting!!!
YES!
Yeah! Once I get the project loading to work (I need to import the custom blocks), I'll give a gamma (Can I use that in a sentence?)
lol i think so

I don't know why am i excited for this even though i don't use any Pi device, it's just such a cool project

Aren't we all? I just *cough* hacked *cough* into the newest NuScratch image so I could edit it. Whiskers runs about 20x faster on my Pi (But I *still* need to import the custom blocks)

This doesn't support SVGs yet, right? So that you don't have to write your own in Squeak, I suggest you look into writing a Squeak plugin and using librsvg. I think it is a fairly feature complete library. I don't know how hard writing a Squeak plugin is or how hard it will be to get librsvg to work on the platforms you you are supporting though, but I am guessing it is easier than writing your own.

No it doesn't, and I don't plan to add SVG saving just yet due to the fact that Scratch 2 can't load SVGs from the old file format, and I haven't finished the loading/saving of projects in the new format). Once I get loading and saving 2.0 projects working, though, I will add SVG support. As for using a plugin: squeak plugins are kind of like addons to the squeak code, but they need a seperate file to run most of the tome. I want to use FFI for the plugins so that the end-user doesn't need a new plugin for their system (And I just don't know how to write a plugin)

Srry for any spelling errors. This was typed on an oPhone

Okay… Here's the first beta build off of NuScratch! This requires you to run it using the Squeak 5.0 VM.

This should be much faster but beware! Many features are not implemented, and many blocks may not work. These are the known bugs:
BUG LIST:
  • The sound category in the tab pane gives an error when clicked
  • Menus don't have shadows
  • Custom blocks are unavailable
  • The new hat blocks show up as normal blocks and don't work
  • Some of the new blocks have performance issues compared to the other blocks
  • Presentation mode is unusable
  • Rotating sprites has interesting effects
  • Graphic effects do not work

What is the relationship between this and NuScratch?

I modded NuScratch to make this. I should be more specific.

NuScratch is the modifications to Scratch made by the Raspberry Pi team. It is optimized for the Raspberry Pi. It also uses Squeak 5 as I remember.

Yeah! Also, NuScratch is a bit buggy from time-to-time (as it is being ported from Squeak-to-NewSqueak all the time), so there might be a lot of bugs in the first few releases of Whiskers while it is being developed as a mod of NuScratch. But I must say, NuScratch is excellent. Just looking at the source code gave me a glimpse how fast it is! *clap* *clap*

Instructions for installing it
http://simplesi.net/nuscratch-version-of-whiskers/

Just WOW!!!!

Simon

I've changed instructions to call it NuWhiskers so that both the standard Whiskers image and NuWhiskers versions can be used at same time until NuWhiskers is more complete

Anyway to use it without having nuscratch, or can you download nuscratch for this? Or is this for the rasberry pi only?

The post
https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/post/1744817/
here is talking about a special version for the Pi (I'd imagine it will run in some modern Squeak environment on other computers but not really worth try while its in theis early stage)

Main Whiskers (using the older squeak that gets installed when you install official Scratch 1.4) is available
http://whiskers.gwiddle.co.uk/

To use standard Whiskers (which runs file on any modern computer) just install Scratch 1.4 from main Scratch website and then follow instructions on website above

What OS do you need it for? I have a Windows build and a Mac build available (and I haven't tested the linux build)
