Alan is an open source project and for many years source has been available, during the last decade on Bitbucket. For various reasons GitHub has become a more and more apropriate site for hosting open source projects. There has also been some activity there to consolidate some Alan related project into an organization not surprisingly called alan-if, primarily thanks to Tristano Ajmone. One of the most important is the alan-docs project, where you can find many of the Alan documentation projects. So Alan has moved there too.

I hope this will make Alan even more visible, and make it easier to cooperate on improving the Alan system.

(The old repo on Bitbucket, will still exist, but only rarely be brought up to date.)

Alan v3.0 beta6 is now available. You can view the details of the changes in the Changes Section. You are encouraged to update to this latest release.

Alan v3.0 beta4 is now available. You can view the details of the changes in the Changes section. There is now only one change left in the plans before Alan 3.0 goes official.

Alan v3.0 beta5 is now available. You can view the details of the changes in Changes Section. This is mostly a resurrection release. After recent changes in the authors life and infra-structure, significant effort was required to ensure that building and releasing again works.

In "No Time To Play" Felix Ple┼čoianu writes about the pleasures of writing an adventure in Alan.
