It's here, the new Scratch 2.0. You don't have to download it as a software and save on your pc, you can use it directly from the internet. If you are logged in, it will save your projects as you work. So it's Scratch on the cloud. I still don't think that you can use it on your smart device. And that is a question that I get asked about from the kids. Not many kids have access to the family computer, but they all have access to a smart device.
There are some cool new features. Go have a look and sus it out. And, yes, they will be working on a stand alone versions for your computer with the new features.
