Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
We have another maintenance release for you as we are aiming for a new stable release soon. As we are getting closer to a stable release we tend to focus on fewer, smaller changes aimed at improving the reliability of Construct. Meanwhile we are keeping back bigger changes for the next beta cycle. Therefore there aren't many changes here, but there are still some important changes for robustness.
The biggest change is to the way Construct handles any errors that occur while loading. If there is an issue downloading an important resource on startup, such as if the download fails due to a connection problem, previously Construct could have ended up in a bit of a mess, with situations like a half-loaded crash report dialog. Now any such errors on startup should be handled more elegantly, showing a new dedicated message that explains what happened and gives a few tips about things you can try. Hopefully this helps make it clear what's going on in situations like trying to load Construct for the first time on a flakey Internet connection. Remember that once it successfully loads and you see the "ready to use offline" message, it doesn't need an Internet connection to load any more, so it should be much more reliable after that.
