We are happy to announce that ROBOTC 3.62 is now available! This is a maintenance release that adds a few new features and fixes some outstanding bugs. This will be the last release for the 3.x family of ROBOTC products, barring any major issues that are reported.
ROBOTC is the premiere robotics programming language for educational robotics and competitions. ROBOTC is a C-Based Programming Language with an Easy-to-Use Development Environment. ROBOTC 3.62 contains four major updates, as shown in the change-log below.
3.61 to 3.62 Change-log
- Bug Fix: Fixed additional bug in “NXT Brick – Joystick” windows with the “Improper Argument” message box.
- Installer Fix: Updated Code Signing Certificate for Installers – No more scary warning when installing ROBOTC
- Update: Robot Virtual Worlds Curriculum Companion Tables – ROBOTC now includes version 3.0 of the Curriculum Companion Tables. All robot models have been updated to include grippers, arms, and new sensors such as Gyroscopes, Potentiometers, and IR Seekers. Find out more about recent RVW updates here.
- Update: License management now allows ROBOTC 4.x users to activate and use ROBOTC 3.x – users will be able to simultaneously have both versions installed on their computers without conflict. All ROBOTC 4.x users (new and upgrade users) will continue to have access to 3.62. Using both ROBOTC 3.x and ROBOTC 4.x with a 4.x license will only use one (1) activation from your license.
Over the next few weeks, we will start to release preview versions of ROBOTC 4.0 for the various platforms ROBOTC supports. ROBOTC 4.0 can be installed alongside ROBOTC 3.x to prevent any issues for users of ROBOTC 3.x. Users who purchase a ROBOTC 4.x license will be able to use ROBOTC 3.62 using the same license for added flexibility.
Important Note for FTC and VEX Competition teams: ROBOTC 3.x will be a legal language for the entire 2013-2014 competition season. Once ROBOTC 4.x is fully released, you will be able to use either version during competition. The ROBOTC development team does not recommend the use of “Preview” versions for competition.
