Notes

New in this release: the Share plugin now supports sharing files, which includes images, videos and anything else you want to attach to a share! This is done by the new 'Add file' action which you use to add attachments before using the 'Share' action. Files are added from a Binary Data object. A useful technique is to use AJAX to load image or video URLs in to a Binary Data object, e.g. canvas snapshots or canvas recordings, which can then be shared. Sharing files works in Cordova exports on both Android and iOS, and is supported in the browser if Web Share level 2 is supported, which is coming to Chrome on Android 75+ and hopefully other browsers in future.

We've also updated all demo games and example projects in the editor to use the new built-in functions instead of the old Function plugin. We have tested these projects to check they work the same, but it can be tricky to test entire games - so if you're looking for an excuse to play Demonoire and others again, it's a good time to have another play test!

There's also a few usability improvements, including around autocomplete, and avoiding confusion in the image editor where drawing with an alpha of 0 does nothing. As usual there's also a range of bug fixes as we work towards a stable release, which hopefully can come out next week.

Finally we're happy to add a new in-progress Chinese (traditional) translation since it reached 10% complete, which contributors can now review in the editor. If you'd like to help get involved with translating Construct 3, see this forum thread to get started.

  • Always so nice to see you working hard on construct 3 ^^

  • Nice, trying the share plugin's sharing files^^

  • Ashley Are we going to have a stable release soon?:P Also, would be possible to have an option to retrieve the language that the android is using?I believe the Platforminfo object would be suitable for that. Thanks.
