This is our first beta after our first stable release! Please note that visiting will load the latest stable release only. To use a beta, visit the version directly, e.g. You should be able to get there by clicking the "Launch r72" button on this page.

We've got a range of bug fixes in this build. Some fixes involve corresponding server-side changes, such as the lazy-loading of language files and cleaning up old release's caches, so may not take effect immediately or until the next release. One potentially important change is an update to our storage library which better supports long duration sessions. Previously it was possible for the storage access to time out, which could cause storage errors after a long session; the storage library should now attempt to automatically recover from this, helping you keep going for longer.

We're also pleased to announce that as of this beta the Russian translation is enabled by default! Remember this won't take effect on until the next stable release, but it means that if your browser language is set to Russian, Construct 3 will automatically load with the Russian language as the default. Further our translation projects are going strong and we're pleased to be able to add four more in-progress translations: Polish, Swedish, Thai and Turkish. You can try these out by enabling Developer Mode, but note most of them are at an early stage right now.
