no export to movie

He-Builder / She-builder

Yes, there will certainly be some sort of mechanism

no guaranteed backward compatibility

Alice v3.0 models will be...

Just as in the real world, it's much easier to detect conflict that it is to resolve it!

Your insights are all correct - we have finite resources, especially people, and we are focusing all our energies on the design and development of 3.0 - especially given the strong desire people have...

Alice running slowly -> more RAM will help

It's impossible to know for sure, but I strongly suspect the problem here is that you are memory-starved. While we cite 128 meg as the minimal acceptable RAM configuration, Alice runs slowly with...

First, I'm glad the community found the "rezip" work-around.
