Great but can we install it straight to the iPad or we need to wait for SyntaxError to alter it ?

Thanks

Technically speaking you could download and compile for iOS yourself. However, you would need first to compile python and SDL for iOS first and even if/when you got all your dependancies resolved there is the lingering issue of my SDL hacks for landscape and retina display support. Without them you would be stuck playing in portrait orientation on iPad and no hope to play on iphone. On top of that I havent yet submitted the code for multitouch support so you wouldn't have any of that either so no drag scrolling right click or what have you.
