Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
The new Timeline feature has had a lot of work done for this release - see the full changelog for all the details. Since we've had a few questions about it, Diego (the main developer of the Timeline feature) has posted a forum thread Introduction to Timelines to help get you started if you'd like to try it out. We're also interested in your feedback on the feature so do let us know in the forums if you have any thoughts.
This release also adds more integrations with the new Binary Data plugin. Now Local Storage can save and load binary data, and the NW.js can read and write binary files, using the Binary Data object. This allows you to do things like take multiple canvas snapshots, load them in to Binary Data (using AJAX with a binary response), and then save them to Local Storage or write them to disk. They can then be read back too, and displayed again using the Binary Data's URL expression. Previously there was no way to do this, so it's a nice example of the new capabilities the Binary Data object offers.
There's also a few more bug fixes, notably to ensure Remote Preview is working smoothly with the new C3 runtime. Finally we've done a bit of work to ensure very large projects with thousands of instances can still open quickly, so hopefully some of you will notice that!
