Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
This build has a number of minor additions and changes, as well as a batch of bug fixes as usual. One of the slightly more significant changes is a special dialog when importing Construct 2 projects with invalid expressions. Due to a loophole in C2's expression validator, it could allow invalid expressions in some circumstances. Previously importing such projects would crash Construct 3. Now it shows a special dialog listing all the invalid expressions. You still have to close the project, but it gives you a clear path on what to update in your C2 project before you can import it.
The main addition in this build is for SDK developers. There's a new addon testing mode that allows you to load an addon from a local webserver instead of having to keep re-packaging a .c3addon file to test every change. This helps speed up development a lot. For more information, see the Construct 3 SDK documentation.

Prompt to enter a custom filename when saving a project with "Download a copy"
Special handling of importing C2 projects with invalid expressions. Instead of crashing, C3 now reports a list of invalid expressions and closes the project.
Preview: when fullscreen mode is off, the preview popup window no longer remembers its previous size
Notifications no longer reset when showing/hiding a dialog. True for all dialogs except the Animations Editor.
First notification not hiding with UI animations turned off
Addon manager: cancelling an uninstall confirmation dialog still removed its row from the addon list (but the addon was not uninstalled)
Better overflow handling of very long names in tabs and captions
Exports from Construct 3 did not work on old browsers like Safari iOS 9
Possible crash/error message double-clicking to open a recent project
Possible crash pressing Escape twice quickly when closing a dialog
New developer mode for easier development of addons. See the SDK docs for more information.
