Ha, good try! Since we have missed the release date the last few times,
the new release date is now "as soon as possible." The difference between
development now vs. two months ago is that we are now working full
time (without paper deadlines and such) and will not stop until the
release is out (after that we will keep going to add other features). The
new release (chuck-1.2) is not done because we are (re)implementing
the interfaces for the new class library, which will allow objects
(written in ChucK or C/C++) to be imported into the class tree. This
will hopefully be the last "showstopper" component before release.
Two other ChucK-related releases - the Audicle
(http://audicle.cs.princeton.edu/), which some of you have seen, and
GLucK (graphics programming in ChucK) are due out later this summer
(a few months after chuck-1.2). Both are mostly implemented but awaiting
chuck-1.2 to be completed.
We are sorry things are so delayed. Thanks for your incredible patience!
