Jurtle specifications

What's new in version 1.8

  • You can now use Jurtle to program the Lego MindStorms Robotic system. After installing the LeJOS operating system on the RCX brick, you can program the brick using Java. Jurtle will automatically use the special LeJOS compiler and then download your compiled programs to the RCX for running.
  • Added a "Copy Picture to Clipboard" button to the Display pane. This allows you to easily capture to output of your creation and paste it into a drawing program or other application.
  • Added two new Preferences tabs. The Advanced tab lets you choose which compiler you want to use and there is also a field for specifying any extra compiler options. The LeJOS tab is for configuring the LeJOS Mindstorms environment.
  • Fixed a performance problem when loading a directory with more than 500 items in it.
  • Jurtle no longer installs the custom security manager that prevented user code from calling System.exit() and causing Jurtle to exit. The custom manager was causing some performance problems when the user's directory was on a remote file system.
  • Fixed a bug that happened when the Turtle's display area was closed up so that it had zero height.
  • Jurtle no longer displays the current license string in the License dialog.
  • Minor fixes for compatibility with Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).
