It's the start of a new beta release cycle! We have a big update for you covering two new features. Firstly there's a new search field in the Project Bar so you can quickly filter down the tree to what you're looking for - very handy for large projects! Secondly there's a new Orbit movement behavior that makes it easy to move an object in an ellipse around a point or another object.
There's a number of other smaller additions, too. Now you can set Layout View and Event Sheet View tabs to whatever color you want - simply right-click them and use the new Colors menu. The Advanced Random plugin also has a new Permutation tables feature that lets you easily create random but non-repeating sequences of numbers - handly for things like shuffling a deck of cards. Construct will now also prompt you to switch a project to the new C3 runtime if you open a project using the C2 runtime which has no compatibility issues preventing it switching.
Some other notes:
• Chrome 72+ now supports screen recording, and this is also supported in the latest NW.js too. It's a great alternative to using other screen recording tools, some of which are buggy. Try out the new Screen recording example to see it in action!
• Chrome 72+ also should now fully support the C3 runtime's new Worker mode, where the runtime is hosted off the main thread in a Web Worker. Accordingly the 'Worker' runtime property is now shown by default again, but still off by default.
• WebGL 2 had been disabled on Android due to reports of what appeared to be GPU driver bugs. We're experimentally re-enabling it to see if the issues have been resolved. Please let us know if you run in to any display glitches on Android that did not happen in the previous release.
• Since Facebook have not fixed a serious Instant Games bug for months, we finally implemented a hack that circumvents the broken part of the Instant Games SDK. This should fix the issue where the framerate keeps increasing in Instant Games using the C3 runtime.
