    If I make a suggestion I would like to have the option to move or disable the Intellisense feature where the box pops up and covers the screen when I'm coding.

  4. Blain, it's a good suggestion. Please add it to the bottom of this list (we want to keep the numbers consistent so that we can refer to them): social.technet.microsoft.com/…/24082.microsoft-small-basic-v1-0-known-issues.aspx

  5. I added #5 to this list!

  6. That's exciting!  Thank you for your information, Ed.

  7. I added #15 to the list.

    Great news! Nice job. An amazing teaching resource.

  9. Thanks, John! You mean Small Basic in general is a great teaching resource?

  10. We got a new one fixed for 1.2. This one was a Doc bug…

    Doc Bug #3: Hebrew translation errors (detail).

    "… no dates or guarantees …" but that's such a tease!!! I realise that this is community-driven and probably has to fit into people's spare time, but a hint of when v1.1 is likely to come out, (given that you're already working on v1.2!!) would be really helpful. I'm teaching with SB 1.0 in UK schools, KS3-KS5 (that's kids aged 11 to 16). I love what they can all achieve, but the flickr and turtle fixes especially would be fantastic if they could be available early next term, April/May. Any chance? Pretty please!!

  12. John, 1.1 is out! How's that for a hint?

    This is a side project. There's no ETA because it doesn't exist. When it's released, we'll be the first to know (mere minutes before you know)! =^)
