Announcing Kojo 2.9.01: Scala based programming and learning environment for kids

I’m pleased to announce a new release of Kojo. The following are the highlights:

  • JVM upgrade from version 8 to version 11 (with a 25% decrease in installer size).
  • Scala upgrade to version 2.13.2.
  • Support for deep-learning based Neural Style Transfer.
  • The introduction of an API for immediate-mode canvas graphics - to help with the creation of (performant) drawings with hundreds of thousands of objects.
  • Support for breakpoints - to aid in debugging and understanding.
  • ColorMaker enhancements.
  • New tutorials and a new book.
