Hi all,

I'm proud to announce the fourth version (0.4) of Sugarizer, a taste of
Sugar for any device.


To remind you, Sugarizer reproduce main features of Sugar in
HTML5/JavaScript. Sugarizer also expose these features to allow running in
a browser Sugar Web activities wrote for Sugar 0.100+.

Sugarizer is available from a browser or as an Android application.

New in this version:

   - Three new activities:
      - Tank Operation: a Tuxmath like activity, practice math facts in an
      arcade game,
      - TurtleJS: a TurtleArt like activity. A taste of TurtleArt for any
      device !
      - ChatPrototype: see below.
   - Sugar compatibility: Sugarizer could now be used as a developer
   platform for Sugar-Web activity. So, developers could now develop Sugar
   activities only with a browser and a file editor. Resulting activities will
   work without any change on Sugar 0.100+.
   - Improve Journal view: rename, delete and popup menu.
   - Server collaboration: Sugarizer Server now allow each user to publish
   local journal content to the Server. Just go to the journal view and access
   to your private or to the shared journal zone. Plus, if you keep in mind
   your user id (in settings/server), you could use the same settings (name,
   color, language, private storage) from different computers.
   - Presence API prototype: Sugarizer include a first prototype of
   Presence API and a Chat test activity. You could chat with all other users
   on the same server.
   - Server connectivity to Client: The Android Client has capacity to
   connect to a Sugarizer Server. Just go to Server settings: check the
   connected checkbox and set your user id. You've now capacity to start your
   work on your PC then update it on your tablet !
   - Improved Android experience: Lot of issues related to Android
   environment has been solved.
   - API to server features: all server features are exposed as REST/JSON
   interfaces. So, developers could easily access to all server contents from
   any client (including, why not, the real Sugar journal).

Hope you'll enjoy it and you could say: "Yes, I want to Sugarize the world".

Do not hesitate to fork and contribute.

prototype), Ignacio (Spanish translation) for their contribution to this
