Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
We've got a great release for you today with two major updates!
First of all the mobile app build service now supports building signed release APKs for Android! This prepares an APK ready for publishing to the Google Play store. Exporting to Cordova now allows you to choose Signed release APK and some new signing options will appear. These include a tool to create a keystore which is used for signing the APK. Be sure to read the warnings about keeping your keystore safe - if you lose it, you may be unable to publish any more updates to your app. This feature now streamlines the Android publishing process avoiding the need to use complicated command-line tools to sign your APK. We'll have documentation and a blog to cover it in more detail soon!
Finally we've now implemented the Instant Games and Facebook plugins for the C3 runtime. We're still working our way through the remaining plugins and hope to finish them all in the near future.
It's a big release and we have a lot to talk about! Keep an eye on our blog for more news throughout the week.
