We're now focusing on stability and aiming to get to a stable release in the next few weeks. As such this release continues to focus on bug fixes. There's several new examples, including a couple that demonstrate the new 3D features. There are also some changes to how existing features work, most based on user feedback. However most of the work has gone to the batch of bug fixes noted below, as we aim to make sure everything is working smoothly.

Please note: due to staff time off, there will not be a release next week (May 17-21). The next release should come out the following week, currently scheduled for May 25th, after which our normal schedule should resume again.

  • Sorry to be insistent, but when will the MobileAdvert plugin be updated? (Admob)

    By the way, about the 3D features, awesome!

  • When exporting to Android, the signed APK does not work on any project

  • Template ”camera input” crashes.

  • I would like to ask you too, could you please make «tap on object -> pick object dialog» to show objects as they are in folders, instead of showing a whole list of project objects? Or better any mode switch in settings?

  • Hey, I can't seem to change the origin of a 3D shape, even if I change all the origin points in the Image Editor panel. Anyone know if this is a bug or if I'm missing something please?

  • Shift + Resize is bug now

  • I would like to ask, could you please make a 3D Shape

    type which would be a regular flat plane? Such an object, apart from

    the height, could also have an angle of inclination with respect to

    the "ground", which would make it possible to create full-fledged 2.5D

    games. That would be great!

    Additionally, could you please add the ability to add effects to 3D

    Shape objects? Being able to add multiple frames of animations

    displayed on the object's wall would also be awesome!
