Sniff is a "Scratch-like" programming language that's designed to help Scratchers move gently from Scratch to more conventional languages. They can start writing programs, without having to learn a new language because Sniff is based on Scratch. They learn a little more about variables, compiling, syntax errors (!), and they can have fun controlling real hardware while they're doing it.

Release 22 (Sorry for the bugs in 21!)

Its Sniff release time again, and 22 squashes a few bugs in Release 21... Most of there are concerned with cross platform issues within the IDE, so you might not have encountered them depending on your platform (Mac users can be smug and annoying here... Linux had some low driver bugs while on Windows the delete key stopped working!).

However its not all internals stuff... we've got the source to an updated version of the IK demo we posted recently, and if you've got a Raspberry Pi (and who hasn't) now might be a fun time to turn it back on and play with the new camera API. This might work with other cameras on other Linux platforms, but it works best with a Pi Cam! We'll have a write up of that soon.

Head over to the Downloads page and get the update!
