Starting SooSL - For macOS versions earlier than Mojave (10.14) you may be warned that SooSL is from
an "Unidentified developer" when trying to run it for the first time. You may still run the program by locating

Video display - A small number of Mac users have reported problems in playing videos.
If this version fixes the problem for you or if videos are still not playing, please let us know! You may use

Malware infection - There is a small possibility that this version of SooSL was infected by malware,
to a past infection of the Python code repositories themselves. There seems to be little to fear
from this, but we have taken
the precaution of removing 0.8.9 from our website, although the source code is still
We would further recommend that anyone developing with the source update there own Python libraries.
- Interface translations added for Romanian.
- Updated Python version used for Windows and macOS (v3.7.2).
- Installed fresh versions of Python and Python libraries on development computers to remove
(small) chance of malware infection in previous versions of SooSL [Windows].
- Repaired issues in SooSL and SooSL's website which were preventing the sending of feedback and error reports.
The same issues were also preventing SooSL from checking for software updates.
