Scratch 3.0

Scratch 3.0 is the Latest version of Scratch. It is a complete redesign and reimplementation of Scratch written in HTML5 and JavaScript. HTML5 is a web rendering language that specifies how pages are laid out. HTML5 is different from other versions because it allows for direct embedding of audio and video and a whole lot more. Scratch 3.0 was released on January 2, 2019.

New Features

Blocks

  • The order of teh blocks has been rearranged. This is annoying, since a lot of users were used to what the order was in Scratch 2.0.
  • Events Blocks are the color of the Scratch 2.0 Control Blocks, and control blocks are a bit lighter than the old events blocks
  • More Blocks has been renamed My Blocks, and is a shade of light red. This is the most important feature of Scratch, and you should make sure to use it.
