I've been using the Omni 3 beta for a few docs 
today.  I've used Omni2 some for outlines for 
lecture notes and liked it.

To me, the main difference between 3(Beta) and 2 
is that in the Beta version, some of the items on 
the Toolbar in 2 have been moved to an Action 
Icon that seems very "Pantherlike" (i.e.like the 
difference in Jaguar's and Panther's Finder 
windows).  Also, there is an Inspector pallete 
that works a lot like Keynote's for fonts and 
other things, as well as the row and column 
attributes.  The default pallete has: Appearance, 
Row, Column Type, Document, Style Attributes. 
There  is an "Attach" feature too, but I haven't 
tried it yet.

As to whether it's worth a "steep" upgrade.  Of 
course there are several perspectives and 
factors.  They have academic pricing, and if you 
got a copy of OmniOutliner bundled on your Mac, 
you can upgrade that one.   I actually did this 
for OmniGraffle and went up to OminGraffle Pro -- 
I think I got a GREAT deal for a great program.
