Little Wizard is a development environment for children. It is intended to be used by primary school children to learn about the main elements of real computer languages. Using only the mouse, children can explore programming concepts such as variables, expressions, loops, conditions, and logical blocks. Every element of the language is represented by an intuitive icon, making it easy to learn. Little Wizard works under Linux and Windows 2000/XP.

Little Wizard uses the GTK (version 2.4 or higher) libraries for its user interface. Libxml is used for saving project files and reading configuration files. Under Windows everything you need can be installed through the GTK installer . That is the same setup that is needed for GIMP for Windows. Don't forget install this because without it won't be able to run the Little Wizard environment.

The current release should be stable, but bug reports are welcome. They can be reported via the sourceforge bug tracker (preferred) or mailed directly to me. Please write full and complete bug reports so I can fix your problem as soon as possible. Don't forget note what system you are using (Windows or Linux) and what version.

I would like to know who is using my environment. I'm also curious about what free linux distributions people are running Little Wizard on. I know that there is are packages for:

    * Debian
    * Ubuntu
    * openSUSE

What distribution will be next? Let me known by mail.
