Mini Micro version 1.0 is out!


After more than three years of development, Mini Micro version 1.0 is finally released!

This is the official, really-we're-not-kidding release of Mini Micro, the neo-retro virtual home computer from an alternate, cooler universe!  100% free as always, this version adds substantial polish and refinements to the previous release.  It's a recommended update for all current users, and even more recommended if you're new to Mini Micro — you're in for a treat!

If you are new to Mini Micro, then start with this trailer video, which even though it was made with version 0.9, is still 100% applicable today:

And then grab the Mini Micro Cheat Sheet, which shows you how to do all the magic Mini Micro can do in just 4 pages.  (Need more detail?  You can always find it on the wiki.)

This 1.0 release comes out just in time for the Mini Micro 1-Page Jam starting next week!  Create a cool mini-game or demo in just one screenful of code, and share it with others doing the same.  You'll be surprised what you can do!

So what are you waiting for?  Go to the Mini Micro page and download a build for your system today!

Release notes (since 0.9.7, 2021-05-17):

  • Added a new pprint ("pretty print") command for neatly displaying lists and maps on the command line.
  • The file.children method no longer appends a slash ("/") on directory names when working on a .minidisk file.
  •  import now works even when an env.importPath entry ends in a slash.
  •  Added color.toListHSV and color.fromListHSV for converting to/from Hue-Saturation-Value format.
  •  Removed the obsolete colorUtil module from /sys/lib.
  •  After a program is terminated, stackTrace now shows where that termination happened.
  • PixelDisplay.drawImage now supports an optional tint parameter.
  • Fixed a bug causing isa checks to fail on the REPL command line (e.g. when entering 42 isa number by itself, without a print call).
  • Inverted the Y axis as reported by JoyAxis2 and JoyAxis4 (and also Joy1Axis2, Joy1Axis4, Joy2Axis2, Joy2Axis4, etc.). So up is now +1 and dow is -1, just like the "Vertical" axis.
  • Fixed bug with file.open failing to create a file if it didn't exist.
  • Fixed weird cursor problems arising from typing "else if" on the first line in the code editor.
  • Added some new images and sounds to the /sys disk.
  • Added a new demo, /sys/demo/springball.ms.
  • Made various small tweaks to demos and include files (largely comments).
