Notes

This release adds a few smaller additions, including the ability to drag-and-drop an SVG file in to the editor to create an SVG Picture object for it, some new Remote Preview options, the ability to disable the collision polygon for a single tile in a tilemap, and some new features in the JSON plugin.

There have also been a range of improvements for mobile devices and touchscreens, such as the ability to scroll by touch in the Tilemap Bar, various fixes for the editor when running on the new iPadOS (many of which stem from the fact iPadOS actually pretends to be a macOS desktop as part of its desktop browsing feature), and some fixes for published apps too such as working around viewport bugs in iOS.

There's also a wide range of other bug fixes in this release as well to ensure things keep working smoothly. We're aiming to get a stable release out early next year. As we move towards that we'll be reducing the amount of changes going in to releases since we want to focus on making sure the next stable release is reliable. Releases will also stop for a couple of weeks over the winter holidays too due to staff holidays. Don't worry though, we'll be back with plenty more next year!

Let us know with a thumbs up!
