[Edu-sig] Rur-ple is no longer dormant!

Hi everyone,

After a long period during which rur-ple was dormant, its development has
restarted.  For those that don't know about rur-ple, it was originally
inspired by Guido van Robot (itself inspired by Richard Pattis' Karel the
robot) and was my first Python project.  Whereas Guido van Robot (GvR for
short) uses a Python-like syntax, rur-ple uses true Python syntax.  (In
fact, rur-ple user programs are run by python via exec()).

Rur-ple's development has moved to a new site (
http://code.google.com/p/rur-ple/) and it has a corresponding new discussion
group (http://groups.google.com/group/rur-ple-discuss).

Among the changes to note:
1) Whereas before only source files (.zip) were distributed, we now have
packages (.exe, .deb, .rpm ... with .dmg planned for the near future) to
make installation easier.
2) Lessons have been completely translated from English into German,
Turkish, Chinese, and partly translated into Spanish.  Other translations
are in the works.
