Hi everyone,

I just received this update from Mitch Resnick of the MIT Scratch Team --

We will be making a preliminary version of the Scratch 2.0 "offline editor" publicly available sometime next week. The version is still missing a few features, but it should be robust and ready for classroom use.

We'll post an announcement here on ScratchEd when the editor is available.

Sincerely,
K

 Is this a standalone client or is it similar to Offline Gmail with editing within a browser?  Looking forward to it as we get our school's (Hong Kong International School) programming group formed.

Hi Brian,

The offline editor is now available! It is a standalone client that allows upload and download from/to the Scratch online community.

Find out how to download it at http://scratched.media.mit.edu/node/21730.

Thanks,
Michelle

The upload feature isn't currently working (it's greyed out in the File menu), but you can open files from the website using it, and upload saved files from the web too. I couldn't find Picoboard support either, but the client seems otherwise pretty complete.

That's great news. Thank you for sharing it!
