Screen reader users find it amencely helpful on pages which list the various properties and methods of a particular object for each method / property definition be wrapped in a heading tag. This will become even more useful / necessary when descriptions are added.

For instance:
- h2: IO

- h3: static member variables

- h4: int MODE_ASYNC

- h4: int MODE_SYNC

Thanx for all your work on this.

  And where do I find this info online?

Theyre probably in a changelog somewhere, but also I am working on a new documentation system (generated from ChucK source) which automatically picks up new features like this. There is a prerelease version here: 

  > The ones you want are running() or done()

  Hmmm. Thought I could do


  but that gives null pointer exception. Makes sense, the shred with the
  id is not running, so I get a null reference, and trying to call
  running() on that... Better is


  However something strange happens in combination with
  Machine.remove(myID) that doesn't happen when I switch to
  Shred.fromId(myID).exit(). The scenario is quite complex, so for now a
  quick difference of the two ways to remove a shred would be nice...

Hmm, it would be nice if there was no difference. But there is a difference, internally, and it appears that is leaking out of the abstraction so to speak. So basically .exit() appears to terminate the shred immediately whereas Machine.remove() waits until all shreds have finished executing for this sample, i.e. all shreds are waiting => now. At least that is what I am interpreting from the source code.
