Yes it's a bit hard to keep up with the Sugar folks ... The easiest  
way to test is by using "Sugar on a Stick". I simply download that  
disk image and use it in an emulator. SoaS-1 works best so far:


There were issues reported running this on an XO, that's why I use it  
in emulation.

There are two main UI changes affecting Etoys. For one, clicking the  
Etoys icon on the home screen resumes the latest project, so there is  
no simple access to the "cloudy" launcher screen any more. Secondly,  
other activities now bring up a "save dialog" when stopping them the  
first time, so that kids are more likely to enter a good project name,  
and possibly a description and tags (on subsequent saves this dialog  
is not shown but the meta data re-used).
