Notes

This release has a number of updates for iOS & Android apps. Firstly the Mobile Advert and Google Play plugins have been upgraded to the latest versions, and there's a new condition for Mobile Advert to identify if you should display an option for the User Consent dialog. Secondly we've done a fair amount of work to fix a number of cases where iOS and Android apps did not use the full display of the device. This includes cases where "notched" devices did not correctly handle the area around the notch, as well as other cases where unnecessary blank space may have appeared on some older devices. With these updates, hopefully mobile apps will be working and displaying better now.

There's also a fix for an issue in r155 which could have caused crashes, or possibly in other cases incorrect rendering with effects. This was caused by an earlier optimisation, but it should be working correctly now (while keeping the same level of performance).

We've tentatively scheduled next Monday (July 1st) for the next stable release, subject to testing. So please test thoroughly and let us know if there are any important issues remaining. All being well we should have a new stable release out soon!

  • Thank you,this release fixed the issue I was having with seeing errors when trying to create a sprite that wasn't already on the layout.

    Great work as always !!!!

  • Thanks for this! I thought I was going nuts! "Possible runtime crash creating instances not placed anywhere in project (regression in r155)"

  • The mobile advert plugin now causes the build process to fail when exporting for iOS. This has only just started happening with this release!

  • Thanks for the update. Could you add an Amazon appstore plugin? I have a Fire 7 and would like to be able to play my games on it.
