Good news from the twittersphere: Cascades Beta 3 is out!

Cascades is the beautiful UI framework that’s being developed over at RIM based off of the highly celebrated acquisition of The Astonishing Tribe from Sweden. This will enable developers to make highly responsive and polished applications that are sure to make BB10 a hit.
