New features in the 3.0 release include an all-new Script Editor, new Start Center, new Resource Center, overhauled documentation, support for nested (or multi-dimensional) arrays, new gradient fill support, improvements to graphic object handling, better image rotation, menu acceleration support and more than 150 bug fixes and other minor enhancements.

Revolution 3.0 comes in three flavours: Revolution Media, aimed at beginners and hobbyists, for $US49; Revolution Studio, designed for consultants and business managers, for $US249; and Revolution Enterprise, a professional programming tool, priced at $US499.

A free trial version is available for download.
