Autopsy 3 is a complete rewrite and is Java-based using the NetBeans platform. It is currently in beta form. You can get the official list of features at the site.

If you want more information on using Autopsy to conduct an investigation, refer to the Autopsy User's Guide.

If you want more information on contributing to Autopsy and developing for it, refer to the Autopsy Developer's Guide. Note that Autopsy 3 was designed as platform to integrate other digital forensics tools. The developer's guide also outlines how to develop modules to integrate into Autopsy.
