New Kojo Release (290113), with support for Visual Programming

I’m pleased to announce a new release of Kojo 2.0 with initial support for Visual Programming via an Instruction Palette (you see the Palette on the left in the screenshot below). You can activate the Palette via the Tools menu.

Here are some of the benefits of the Instruction Palette:

  • You get an easy overview of what’s available for you to try out and play with. This can be a huge help for beginners.
  • You get live help for each available item (you can turn this off with a click if it gets in your way, and turn it back on as needed).
  • You get to program in a mostly point and click way with the mouse, using the keyboard only to specify inputs to commands and functions. This can be a big help for those who are not yet proficient with the keyboard (and even those who are!).

Feedback welcome. As always, the new version is available from the Kojo Download Page.

Enjoy!
