This is old news by now, but please bear with us – we forgot to update this website for the past few 3.7.x releases!

  • 3.7.0 was released on 2016-03-13
  • 3.7.1 was released on 2016-04-10
  • 3.7.2 was released on 2016-06-03

Head to the Downloads page to get 3.7.2.

3.7 is special since it marks our first release in a few years (not counting some prereleases in 2015). It’s also significant since from here on, we’ll be picking up the speed of 3.x versions. 3.8 is only a month or so away as of this writing.

3.7 can coexist with 3.6.6 and other SC versions. We recommend you backup your sc_ide_conf.yaml - settings from 3.6.6 should be forwards compatible, but using a 3.7 settings file in 3.6.6 may experience problems. This can be found in the user support folder (File > ‘Open user support directory’).


Major changes since 3.6.6

  • Cross-platform HID support using HIDAPI
  • A new Quarks package management system which supports installing packages from Git or from local folders.
  • JITlib has seen significant refactoring and new functionality (see the “JITLib Changes in 3.7” help file)
  • IDE editor themes can now be saved/loaded.
  • Many enhancements to IDE autocomplete, introspection, and workflow improvements.
  • A new Download class, for easy http file download.
  • GUI redirects have been removed, Qt is now the core UI toolkit in sclang
  • The Image class has been resurrected.
  • The Document class has been resurrected, allowing sclang interaction with IDE documents.
