On my personal blog, way back in 2008, I posted a little logic gate simulator that people to play around with and learn about how computers work. Everything enjoyed it so much that, two years later in 2010, I turned it into a full software product that educators and students could buy and use in the classroom. Over a decade later, I’m excited to introduce the beta version of Logicly 2.0.
This new version of Logicly has been completely rewritten, from the ground up. It provides all of the same capabilities, but it runs faster than ever before, allowing you to simulate even larger projects. This re-architecture makes it easier for me to add new features, and if all goes well, it will eventually run on even more platforms — not only Windows and macOS. The future of Logicly is looking bright, and I’m very excited!
As you can imagine, a complete rewrite of Logicly required a significant amount of work. It’s been multiple years in the making, but things are finally coming together. Now, I am asking for your generous help to catch any sneaky little bugs that I may have missed. If you discover any issues while you try out Logicly 2.0, please don’t hesitate to submit a bug report! I will be forever grateful for your contribution.
This build is not available from the normal Check for Updates mechanism in Logicly. It is only available for download from logic.ly/beta. Once I’m certain that everything is stable, I’ll release an official update for everyone. If you’re feeling adventurous, give the beta a try. If you’d rather avoid any possible new bugs, please wait for a stable build of Logicly 2.0 later this year.
Tip: If you’re using Windows 11 or macOS 12 “Monterey”, I recommend jumping straight to Logicly 2.o, for the best experience.
I’m looking forward to your feedback! Thanks for giving it a try.
