Chickadee 0.6.0 released

November 19, 2020

I'm happy to announce that Chickadee 0.6.0 has been released!

Chickadee is a game development toolkit for Guile. Chickadee aims to provide all the features that parenthetically inclined game developers need to make 2D and 3D games in Scheme.

As Chickadee is still alpha software, several breaking changes were introduced in this release. Fortunately, the changes are mostly related to naming so upgrading an existing program to Chickadee 0.6.0 should be fairly straightfoward. Keep reading for the full scope of these changes.

Notable improvements and changes:

Bug reports, bug fixes, feature requests, and patches are welcomed.

Have fun!

P.S. - If you make something with Chickadee, feel free to share it with me via email or Mastodon. I'd love to see what people are doing with this library and get feedback about what to prioritize for future releases.
