    The people who watched last week’s Webinar, got a glimpse of what’s coming in ROBOTC 4.x.  I’m very excited about this as it will support two new platforms: the VEX IQ and of course the new MINDSTORMS EV3.  I’m currently working on overhauling the Driver Suite, so it will be […]

    The fine folks at Robomattter have released a new beta.  Now, I don’t think it should be called a beta, but I’m sure they have their reasons for that.  It fixes quite a number of issues that were reported in 3.54 and 3.55.2.  Thankfully, most, if not all of those […]
