A new release of Microsoft’s visual programming language designed for building games is now available for download for customers running Windows. Just as the previous versions of the game development platform, Kodu is still cooking in the Redmond ovens. In this regard, Build 18.104.22.168
is labeled as a Technical Preview release, this even though when it announced the PC flavor of Kodu in the first half of January 2010 Microsoft indicated that the product was in Beta stage
. According to a member of the development team, the Redmond company has been working to modify the manner in which it makes new releases available and how it hosts the bits for the general public.
