Exclamation What's going on with Alice 3? - 04-14-2010, 01:32 PM

The kenai page is outdated compared to alice.org, the blog has been dead for 2/3 of a year, and I can't even find a changelog anywhere.

Has there been any news from the Dev team? I was hoping to be able to support Alice3 in the classroom for S2 next year, but am starting to get nervous about things.

We haven't heard anything from the team officially, but last I heard from gabe (which was about 2 months ago), the Alice Team still has meetings, so they're still doing SOMETHING.

Why would you get nervous about these types of things man?

There's still a lot of work to be done, but Alice 3 is capable of being used to teach with. The major thing it's lacking right now is documentation/textbooks. We have just started work on online help, so hopefully you should start to see some things appear online shortly.
Thanks! I really appreciate the time you've been spending liazing with the community and the work you've been doing on Alice.

I was at CS4HS this year and hoped to bump into one of you guys to thank you in person, but no dice.

I'm a teacher, but I'm also in charge of making the curricula for Computer Science classes. I need to know where the class is starting, ending, and how we get there in between, especially when I write the class description that goes to guidance.

Question Please provide Alice 3.0 status report - 07-01-2010, 12:09 PM

It would seem reasonable that after the beta nearly one year ago, there should be some status report. Even if it just says "we are still working issues", at least that tells us that Alice 3.0 is still alive. As it is, there is no way to know if progress is being made at all.

Can someone please publish a status report?

Alice is still being worked on. We have 2 programmers. Total. So development takes time. But progress is being made.

Yikes. Out of curiosity, is Dennis Cosgrove one of those two?
