2007-2010 News Items

1999 - 2000 - 2001 - 2002 - 2003 - 2004 - 2005 - 2006

9 March 2010  Alchemist's Challenge 1.5.7 is now available. This version makes a slight change in how the Scribe, Blacksmith, Apprentice, and Journeyman challenges respond to incorrect answers. Before, these quizzes would always replace the student's answer with the correct answer (if Always reveal correct answer option was turned on). This could be confusing, for instance, if the student's wrong answer was very close to the correct answer. Now the student's answer is left intact on the screen in these 4 challenges. Also, this version is now tested compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Alchemist's Challenge 1.5.7 is a Universal application for both PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh computers. Alchemist's Challenge can be registered for $15. Upgrades from earlier versions are free. Alchemist's Challenge 1.5.7 requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later. Download Alchemist's Challenge 1.5.7 today!
