Enchanting v0.2.3 is out

Enchanting is a fantastic project that combines the programming language of SCRATCH with the NXT.  Clinton has just released version 0.2.3 and some of the improvements look great.
- Easily control the display with the SCRATCH sprite editor
- Easily record sounds to upload to your NXT
- Program your robot to travel set distances and angles (hmmm, would be interesting to know how it accounts for variations in robot design)

I'm pleased to announce that Enchanting v0.2.3 is out.
Enchanting makes programming the NXT fun again. It is simple enough for a beginner, but has enough depth to be a useful tool for an intermediate-to-advanced roboticist.
Here's a taste of what it's all about, in less than two minutes:
Enchanting is free and open-source, includes German and French translations, and runs on Windows and Mac OS X (and somewhat on Linux). There are several more videos, an iBook, and cards to show you how to use it, thoughts from people who've used Enchanting, a list of bugs to be aware of, and forums where we'll help you with your questions. Come and take a look!

Before you can tell your robot to drive forward a specific distance, you must specify the dimensions and setup of the robot. It is explained in this video and in Enchanting Card #4.

Will Enchanting work with EV3? I've got NXT and want to upgrade to EV3. Also, anyway to use Enchanting on Chromebooks?
