Etoys4-RC3 is up on


in both the Mac installer variant, and as Etoys-To-Go which works on  
Linux, Mac, and Windows. The Windows installer will follow shortly.

Changelog since first release candidate:

4.0.2332 (6 Oct 2009)
  * third release candidate
  * updated translations: fr, ja
  * store reference to previous project when a project is re-uploaded
  * smaller font size for textual scripts
  * fix translating of value types and function tiles
  * fix bearing-to and distance-to in Test pane

4.0.2325 (29 Sep 2009)
  * second release candidate
  * updated translations: de, es, fr, ko, mn
  * updated example projects
  * attempt to fix the erratic "project can't be saved because of  
blocks" warning
  * fix missing languages on the Mac when launched by double-clicking  
a project
  * fix lost formatting when copying and pasting text on the Mac
  * show "Haitian Creole" instead of "ht" in language menu
  * supply parentheses around 'bearing to' and 'distance to' so  
expressions can be extended
  * prevent tool bar from accidental deletion
  * Mac VM updated to 4.2.2b1: built under 10.6, fix memory leaks,  
scrolling, serial ports

Please test thoroughly, we intend next week's release candidate to be  
the final one!

For Sugar, the deadline for the final 0.86.2 bug-fix release is  
Thursday the 8th, so it's particularly important to test this under  
Linux (or even better under Sugar - I updated jhbuild, too, and  
released rpms). No more 0.86 releases are planned, development will  
continue on 0.88.

And someone please rewrite this in non-geek-speak and announce on  
squeakland once the Windows installer is up :)
