Sculptor 3 Features

Without spending more time than I would like to, is there an area that show specifically what the new features are in 3.0 versus 2.0. I am trying to determine if it worth the upgrade. I see the features list but cannot really discern what is new or not.

So I can
1) change colour and its got a colour picker
2) Insert some DW widgets that have nothing to do with page design
and
3) it works at a speed that is up to what it should have been in version 1

is this good value for a whole point update?
what happened to all the user feedback?
Menu integration?
Content boxes?

Yet another revenue run from Webassist!

Thanks Jon, that sums up the new features.

Steve: It is a new version of the product, not an update to the existing product. There are new features added, so that is why it jumps from version 2 to version 3.

Amazing - hardly earth moving and its a brand new release!. This is one of my biggest disappointments with webassist and its products.

Nothing from what I recall in the suggestion thread (speed is/was appalling - so thats not really a feature more a fix)
Feature list reads like something from a programmers quick 'can do' list.
Not much point in proffering new features when you end up with something you didn't ask for and even worse, features that install Adobe products that have seen so little development or user feedback over the last three years that people have asked 'Is Spry Dead?).

We appreciate the feedback. The UI has been completely overhauled and the colorpicker and spry additions are actually very nice. We'll have more updates for the next version... if you aren't impressed with these than continue to use the old version until then.

No flexible window for UI?

I'd like to know if the interface window on CSS Sculptor 3.0 is flexible so we can stretch it out to see all of the box layout components (body, width, margin, padding, etc.) without having to scroll that frame. The columns for body, width, etc. are flexible but not much help because you still can't see all you've input without scrolling.

Is there any reason the whole extension window can't be flexible?

Unfortunately, the window is not flexible in the way you want it to be, but it should be wide enough to show the information you want horizontally. Dreamweaver does not allow for the size of this kind of popup windows to be re-sizable, so we are unable to make the interfaces re-sizable.
