Transition from MIT Scratch Beta to the Final Release Version 3.0

MIT Scratch 3.0 was formally released in January 2019.

A few differences happened in their software so by mid January we adapted the workbook to reflect these changes and republished the volumes.

These changes are not essential and do not affect usability of the workbooks.



How do you know which volume you have?
The old volume does not have the "ver 3.0" seal on the cover.   The new updated volume has the "ver 3.0" seal on the cover.
The following notes will help you with the transition.   The volume was updated on amazon. You do not need the list below.
    Updated January 16, 2019



Page 9

The "Try it" button no longer exists in the released 3.0 version. It was there only prior to January 2019. Instead press the Create menu at the top left side of the welcome page to enter the site.


Page 10

The beta site no longer exists. If you happen to type the original beta hyperlink as shown on page 10, Scratch will automatically redirect you to the 3.0 welcome page and you will be able to continue working correctly.

Should this no longer be the case in the future, use the hyperlink: instead.

This is not an issue for the time being (January 2019).


Page 42

The drop down dialog presented at the top of the page has changed a bit. Instead of "Download to your computer" the option now says "Save to your computer".


Page 43

The file naming method is simpler in the new version. No dates are used anymore. Instead a generic name is given such as Scratch Project (4).sb3, for example.

If a project was saved for the fourth time, as in this example, the number four will appear in brackets.

This change has no impact on the workflow of this volume.
