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.

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).

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".

Instead of the line:

                   select the File menu, followed by the “Download to your computer”

the option now says:

                   select the File menu,  followed by the “Save to your computer”.

The figure on this page indicates the user was able to provide a name for a project (see red arrow below) while saving to the local computer.

This was only available in the Beta version of the software prior to January 2019. The box has been removed since.

The user will not be able to name the project in this environment, that is working without logging into an account.

Instead Scratch will generate a project name automatically such as Scratch Project (4).sb3, for example. The user can continue to use the

                   select the File menu,  followed by the “Save to your computer”.

option as usual.

The name of the project can be changed separately using the Windows File Explorer instead.

This change has no impact on this volume's workflow.
