  • The buttons for making sprites were moved and labelled
  • Small stage mode was added, and the buttons to switch between regular, small stage, and presentation mode were moved to the top right
  • All the buttons in the toolbar were replaced with menus: File, Edit, Share, and Help. Icons were added for selecting a language and saving and sharing projects.
  • In the beta, Mesh could be accessed by shift-clicking the Share menu (see Mesh#Modifying Scratch for how to get it in the release)
  • A feature was added allowing users to create costumes using a camera
