Shoes 3.2.21 is available

Finally! Shoes 3.2.21 is available (Download) More than any previous Shoes 3.2 release, this one is very much a team effort and includes a lot more code and fixes by skilled people and less cowboy from me. I think you’ll like it. Here’s whats new in 3.2.21



You might have noticed a theme to 3.2.21 – The manual and improving the experience of using Shoes to write little applications and play with Ruby. Even experienced Shoes folk use the manual. Now it’s much more pleasant to use. We also have some interesting ideas how to improve the experience even more but it’s too soon to say anything more.

Now I want to talk about old critters. Like a 15 year old family dog, you know they won’t live forever and there is nothing you can do about that. Operating systems are like that. Apple is not going to fix Snowleopard (10.6). Microsoft is not going to fix XP. This not news. Ruby folks won’t talk to you if your using 1.9.2 (soon 1.9.3). Shoes can’t change any of that. OK, your old dog might like an old shoe to chew on but you get the point.

We have made an effort to get Shoes working on OSX 10.6 and it does work. But, it will always be a dying Shoes. Every hour spent on these old critters is an hour not spent on the future. Grab it knowing that it’s life time is short. Likewise, Shoes 3.2.21 does run on Windows XP but that’s just luck.

How do you know you have Shoes 3.21 or newer?

    Nice features added, especially manual’s backward and forward buttons, they seem pretty handy. However, I cannot keep myself from not complaining about the new splash screen, it is something that gives me a headache(real one). At least it’ll make my decisions about what to do after shoes is started quicker. 🙂
