Also is there any way to publicly view and report issues/push fixes to the source code such as on Github or some other Git site? Not yet. We were planning to make the source code for the virtual machine available when GP 1.0 was released, but development has been slow since we lost funding last Aug...
Is there anyway to increase the VM memory from the default 2 GB? As MSandro wrote, GP's memory space is 200MB by default. It isn't currently possible to change that, but it might make sense to add a command-line switch to do this. And if the "memory used" block shows is right, GP seems to have some...

Text rendering in GP isn't quite as good as MacOS, which uses some clever sub-pixel rendering tricks to optimize anti-aliasing for LCD screens. However, I suspect that your stage is scaled, so you are seeing a scaled-down version of what was actually rendered to the stage. To see the text without sc...

In conjunction with the Scratch@MIT conference, there will be a two-hour GP workshop on Wednesday, July 25, 3-5pm. After the workshop, there will be ample time to get to the MIT Media Lab for the opening reception at 6pm. It is under a mile, so some of us will probably walk. Unfortunately, space is ...

Thanks for looking into this. I suspect it's an issue with names with extensions vs. not having extensions.
Does it make sense to continue my work on my interactive GP presentation on Scratch? Also, I am thinking of publishing a post in the Scratch Forum under "Advanced Topics". In this post I would like to introduce GP and draw attention to it. Does that make sense or should I refrain from doing that? N...
The GP Twitter feed is: https://twitter.com/gpblocks Thanks for the offer to help with the website. I will keep you in mind. I already have a particular website framework in mind, It was created by Bernat Romagosa to share Snap! and Snap4Arduino projects. It's built on a variation of Nginx with Lua ...
There is no way to do this in GP right now. The general case of running an executable file is a big security hole that I'd rather not put into GP. That includes opening a file, too, since "opening" an exe or shell script file might execute it. It might be worth considering a command that is limited ...

We were already using a captcha system on the registration form. It helped a lot (it filtered out robots such as the one that created hundreds of account in one day before we had it) but, unfortunately, we were still getting dozens of registrations a day that were clearly bogus, mostly from Russia a...
I agree that it would be great get the word out about GP. I also think that there might be a lot of older Scratchers who would love GP. For someone just learning programming, Scratch is better, but GP allows people to go deeper and do things you can't do in Scratch. So, how do we get the word out? I...
