The biggest change this release is we now have a French translation of the editor available! This is thanks to a lot of hard work by Kyatric. Simply change your language in the Settings dialog to try it. Translation support is currently experimental - we'd love to extend this out to as many other languages as possible, but we're trialling one language first to see how it goes and work out if there are any issues. Please give it a spin and let us know if you like it!

We've turned our focus back to bug fixes for this release, so we've got a sizable batch of improvements. A number of issues that have been around for a few weeks should be solved in this build.

One extra addition this build is you can now use the rgbEx() system expression. This works similarly to rgb() but uses a 0-100 scale (instead of 0-255), and can go out of range, e.g. to 200 or -50 (the old expression would clamp). This is helpful for setting shader parameters, e.g. tinting to 200% red.

In other news, we're also trialling experimental support for C3 in Firefox. Click the link to find out more! If you try Construct 3 in Firefox we're keen to hear how it works out, so please post in that thread if you have any feedback.

Let us know with a thumbs up!
