    The released version is actually 3.0.0f5 (the last release candidate) it seems so if you already have that, no need to download anything.

    Anyway, congratulations unity!

    nice!

    Let's see how it compares to 2.6.1



    little Sidenote.
    Although 3.0 is great. Still it lacks something:
    We asked for it many times, to have more features in Unity, and no we're not talking about the special stuff, but the now in the industry COMMON stuff. (e.g. RT shadows, Render to texture, Glow, video). There is still many high end stuff left, for the PRO version. don't worry.
    This 3.0 release could be the chance..

    I didn't expect large changes anymore but i somehow thought that for the release version they would fix tiny stuff like quite some broken links from the editor to the docs (for instance several image effects), nevermind.

    If anyone is having trouble activating Unity with a serial number, you can manually activate your own serial number using the form on this page: https://store.unity3d.com/shop/manual_activation.cgi (never mind the extremely outdated page style ;-) )

    And my license request is always refused.

    Absolutely no reaction for me, there's a message saying "No Text could be found for index 16" or something...

    same problem here

    I activated the 30-days Pro trial version and it is now working fine.

    I hope there will be no hassle in going back to Unity3 free after trial expires.


    On a more personal note, I'm just thinking to add iOS for $300 (last day of bonanza thanks to UT guys) and have Unity3 free + iOS basic.

    same problem here.. (version 3.0.0f5, just downloaded)

    after minutes of waiting, i finally get sent to a webpage, then i click free , after some minutes waiting again, i get a message on the webpage telling me

    "The serial number you entered is not valid. Please recheck the serial number and try again. To get a trial, contact support@unity3d.com."

    And inside the installer i get a popup with something like:

    "An Error occurred with the internet activation server. The operation timed out (error number 12002)

    Press OK to manually activate your softwate.

    ID: ePAY: <number> / WPSW : <number>
    "

    then after clicking ok, i see a new dialog, but whatever i do, click etc.. it won't activate.

    So, I've got a question: Does the new unity support OS X 10.4 ? Or is it Leopard-only, this could explain a lot for me...

    @ mikesgames: Yeah, same thing for me...

    The factor time.
    The activation server is not god, if it gets too many request, part of them will be bounced likely to prevent it from crashing.

    They could, no wait... should have scaled it up, for the launch. One can expect a high traffic load, with a long awaited new release ;)

    Oddly, I got the same error message ("The operation timed out"). But when I went back to Unity 3, it continued on just fine. I've shut down and reopened it a couple times, and it seems to be fine. It's not nagging me for a license anyway.

    well dogzerx, i've been so far, that i could choose my type of license.
    (which is either a free one, or a pro license)

    so, there is a free license available. Also, if you look at the license comparison page (in the store)
    you notice there is a "unity" license, and a Pro license.


    @unity technologies:
    What i don't get, is why on earth does the free one needs, activation at all?
    (it free!, no need to activate anything.. activation for the PRO and 30 day evaluation is logical though)

    Disappointed that the iOS version won't be getting occlusion culling. Love the new editor tools though.

    The iOS version has it, but occlusion is a pro only thing so you need iOS Pro for it

    Why do not you all activate the 30days trail of Pro? It's free and then go back to Unity free.

    I'm downloading it now. It took two tries just to get the download started for me. Hopefully my activation process goes more smooth.
