Updates

On January 9, 2019, the Scratch Team released new updates for Scratch 3.0, fixing many bugs Scratchers had reported.[2] They included projects getting stuck on the loading screen, and the love and favorites not showing up. This announcement was shown on the Front Page.

In early-mid January 2019, the front page banner was changed from "The new Scratch is here!" to "Create stories, games, and animations" and "Share with others around the world". Below the banner, there are two buttons: "Start Creating", leading to the project editor, and "Join", leading to a page to create a Scratch account.

On April 19, some more updates were rolled out.[3] It included the Go Direct Force and Acceleration Extension and bug fixes.
