Here it is, finally, the next installment of Small Basic CTP. Once again, the new v0.4 version comes with a lot of bug fixes, and a new “Timer” object that makes writing games easier. What really excites me with this release is that Small Basic is completely localizable, and as a start, we’ve localized the UI and the Library Help in French!

The localization was a community driven effort. Sandra Aldana and Dioni de Morena Morales have been the main co-ordinators behind the effort and I’d like to thank them for all their efforts. In addition, the French translation was provided by Thierry Huguet (Microsoft) and Fabien Lavocat (Microsoft Intern). Many thanks to them too!
The localized documentation will be released out of band as and when they arrive. If you want to participate in the localization efforts, please feel free to contact me.
