Dear all,

A new release of ChucK (; codename "chai") is here:


This is a major release; additions and updates include:

* ChucK + AI (ChAI) -- a set of AI/ML tools for building interactive AI 
musical instruments and systems (thanks to Dr. Rebecca Fiebrink for 
blazing the trail on interactive AI for music; thanks Yikai Li and the 
students of Music AI):

* WebChucK IDE -- code ChucK on the web!
     (thanks Terry Feng + team for WebChucK IDE)

* WebChucK landing page (use ChucK in your web projects)
     (thanks Jack Atherton for creating WebChucK)

* all new API reference, now auto-generated from the type system (based 
on Spencer Salazar's 'ckdoc' utility; many thanks to everyone who 
contributed documentation and examples):

* audio drivers support -- ASIO and WASAPI support on Windows; can now 
compile Jack + Pulse + ALSA support into a single chuck executable on 
Linux (thanks Dana Batali and Nick Shaheed)

* improved audio devices support, including AirPods and other Bluetooth 

* The full list of new features and updates can found here:

* (extra!) A few projects made with ChAI from a recent course

Happy ChucKing to all!
