Test Tim’s new Scratch alpha

Over the last year, we’ve seen big improvements in Scratch performance on the Pi. To date these have resulted from tweaks to the Scratch codebase and the addition of ARMv6-optimized blitting routines to the Squeak Smalltalk VM on which it runs. To give us the next uplift in performance, Tim Rowledge has been busy porting Scratch to a much newer version of Squeak, and he has a very early alpha (i.e. in-progress and therefore buggy) version for you to play with.

Please check out his forum post here and share your feedback.

WARNING! THIS IS A DEVELOPER RELEASE, AND NOT FOR BEGINNERS!
