Welcome to dbx3! I can't tell you what a joy (and a relief!) it is to finally have this released, after more than two years
It hasn't actually taken two years' constant development to make this, that would be ridiculous, but I've been so busy and distracted over the last 12 months in particular, it's been really hard to find the time.
But now it's finally here, I hope you feel it's been worth the wait. There probably are a few little teething troubles here and there, and so I shouldn't be surprised if 3.1 follows quite closely behind. As ever - any problems or bugs you find, comments or feedback in general, please do let me know

A reason to upgrade would be the improvements in browser support, particularly (to my mind anyway) the fixed conflict with spatial navigation in Opera, but also the added support for all the other browsers that have come out in the meantime; I can't guarantee that v2 works in, for example, IE8 or Safari 3 or 4.
But apart from that, no, there's no particular need to upgrade if you don't need any of the new features.
Oh, and thanks for the feedback guys, glad you like it

@Marilou - I designed v3 to be backwardly compatible, so you should just be able to replace your dbx.js script and it will continue to work exactly the same. Let us know if you have any problems.
@steve - Yeah I don't know what came over me then. Thanks for your support
