In this release we're adding an experimental feature to use local file and folder saves from the Chrome browser. This allows you to save a single-file project (.c3p) anywhere on disk, rather than only as a download. It also means you can use folder-based projects in the browser too! Previously this was only possible with a separate downloaded app, but we're pleased to see this becoming possible in the browser too. Using this will require making a few changes to opt-in to the experiment. For more information on how to try it out, see this forum thread on experimental local file & folder saves.

Other than that there are some updates for timelines in this release. One particularly handy option is you can now use the 'Set instance' action of the Timeline plugin with an empty track ID. This will use the first track in the timeline. It saves you having to set track IDs for simple timelines, making it quicker to set up playing timelines with different instances. You can even use the action with an empty track ID multiple times, and each time it will set an instance for the next track in the timeline. There's also various smaller changes like the New Project dialog remembering its last settings, and the usual batch of bug fixes too.
