New feature

Commenting to programs

Dear Coders/Educators,

Now you can comment on the programs you like or have an idea how to improve.
Please try the new commenting feature and let the program creators know your opinion.
We do think one of the best ways to learn is from each other, so try it on.

Greetings,

Bug fix

showturtle (st), hideturtle(ht) commands

The commands showturtle (st) and hideturtle (ht) are now working properly.

New command

Include command (beta)

We are happy to announce that Turtle Academy will now support the include command (for now only in English).

The command structure is include (e.g include 8080). When we include a program, we actually import all of our defined functions (TO commands) from this program. This is a really powerful tool which enables us to define a function once and use it everywhere.
