New Release of Physical Etoys

Hi everybody (and sorry if you receive multiple copies),

It’s been a while since our last version but we’re proud to announce a new release of Physical Etoys.
You can download it from here:

This new version includes:
* Full support for the DuinoBot kit (
* New objects such as the Timer and the IR receiver.
* More example projects to help you get started.
* And of course, lots of bug fixes and minor UI enhancements.

All in all, this version is much better than the previous and we hope you would enjoy it as much as we do :).


Noury Bouraqadi has some very exciting news for anyone interested in using Squeak for robotics. He writes on the mailing list that Squeak is now running on yet another platform: WifiBot robots. This work is a step towards both a smart software architecture that drives individual robots and  system that manages robots interactions and cooperation.

If you’re interested in being watched by crowds of robots as you work, Noury and his colleagues are now seeking a PhD student to contribute to this project. See the project website for more details.
