JES Prerelease!

I packaged up the next release of JES, our "Media Computation" environment for helping beginning programmers today. Honestly, if I was teaching kids about programming, I'd probably use this. It's a lot faster than the previous versions, it has a better layout and clever integrated help, it has LOGO turtles!, and like always -- it's really good for doing funky stuff to pictures. (gallery 1, gallery 2).

Fresh code! Here!

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
(slides for cs1315, the course where we make use of JES can be found here, in case you want to play around with JES but don't know what it's good for yet!)
