MIT Media Lab to Release Scratch 2.0

THE CAT COMES BACK: The popular free coding language will show that it has just been scratching the surface when it gets an overhaul on May 9th. Scratch 2.0 will feature profile pages that let users show off their content, comment, and favorite projects. Users will also be able to see the inner workings of projects they like and modify them. Other improvements include the ability to use vector graphics, create unique coding blocks, use the webcam for motion games, and connect to cloud data--allowing users to do things like create games with global high scores. Not bad for an "introductory" language!
