The 3.x revamp seems to be an improvement on the previous series except for one thing: no image manager. The site states that this is done in the form of a complete rewrite of the old image manager which will be provided in the paid subscription.
Too bad. I own a couple of non-profit websites and paying ~30 euro each 6 months for an editor which is only occasionally used is a no-go for me.
The image editor is freely available to all. You can use it on all your sites, without limitaitons or cost in the 2.6 series. However, A massive amount of work has been undertaken to rebuild the image editor for the 3.0x series. This will soon be available including 6 months worth of updates and Professional Forum Support. The image editor in the (3.0x) is also 'GPL', so you can use it on all your sites for a 'one' of payment subscription for €32.00,! Now that can't be bad..?
