3.0 really is only an incremental step over 2.3, it could as well  
have been named 2.4. The reason to go with 3.0 was simply because we  
wanted a new sources file (EtoysV3.sources). We do not expect to  
introduce major incompatibilities or even features in this line of  
development. It has to go stable now. Contributions from the  
community are welcome, but the core team will not add features. There  
certainly will be improvements, one biggie is better international  
text rendering, another restoration of media playback, but from a  
user's point of view Etoys can be considered pretty much feature-
