We're continuing to focus on reliability and bug fixes as we work towards a stable release. So in this release we have another big batch of bug fixes! These include fixing a few more accidental regressions in past beta releases, including working around a complicated Safari bug that had been causing issues with Remote Preview since r277, and one more issue with Drawing Canvas. There's also a few fixes for using touch or pen input in the editor, and a range of miscellaneous other fixes.

All being well, we should have a stable release out by early March. If you find any more remaining issues please do let us know soon by filing an issue following all the guidelines.

  • "Event Sheet View: remove Ctrl/Cmd + mouse wheel as shortcut to change font size", good riddance, I'm not going to miss that one :) I accidentally did that all the time.

  • So many bug fixes!!! ^^


  • Nice ❤

  • Awesome :)

  • This is a great update, thanks for all the tune-ups!

  • Nice update! especially Safari bug. I many times stuck there, thanks.

  • remove Ctrl/Cmd + mouse wheel


    I have two monitors and I change the size on each

  • Would it be possible to add to the 3d shap object, in addition to the option of choosing a sprite for each face, already defining the frame and animation? It would avoid creating multiple 3d objects or sprites. Only one would solve it by changing the initial frame of the sprite or animation

      It should already be supported. Providing there are the same number of 3D shapes and sprites, each 3D shape will take the initial animation and frame from a corresponding sprite instance.
