New Scratch Alpha @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

A new Scratch Alpha from Tim Rowledge via raspberrypi.org

You’re an exciting, wild sort, willing to take risks for high powered pleasures. You walk rapidly with scissors, you hurtle down stairs two at a time, you don’t even check your Starbucks is cool enough to drink before your first sip. You’re bad.

You need more oomph from your Scratch. You don’t mind if it blows up occasionally because it has semi-sentient packets of code ripped from the bowels of crashed starships that once glittered near the Tannhauser gates. You want it. Now.

OK, so here’s the thing; it’s dangerous. It may ruin your life. It will certainly not do everything you expect and some UI parts are quite frankly irritating right now. You really don’t want to try uploading projects to a public repository yet, though most that you download will work ok. Ish.

If you’re so cool you could store a side of beef in yourself, so hip you have trouble seeing over your pelvis, so utterly fearless you don’t even bother with peril-sensitive sunglasses – then you’re the one. Try downloading http://www.raspberrypi.org/NuScratch.tgz
