First of all due to a bug in the release system, we accidentally shipped the beta r72 to, which was meant to stay on the stable channel (r71). We've already got a fix for this, but due to the complications of having already shipped a beta release to, we've decided to carry on as-is and implement the fix at the next stable release. Apologies for any confusion over this. If you want to keep using the last stable release, please load it directly at For now will keep updating to the latest beta until we ship the next stable release.

Other than that, this release adds support for the iPhone X viewport: simply set the new Viewport fit project property to Cover. This will cause the viewport to use the entire screen rather than being confined to the "safe area" which adds black bars around the edges.

We've also adjusted the Event Sheet View to remember its column sizes if you resize the window small then large again. Previously this would leave everything at the minimum size, but now it knows to bring back the sizes you had before the window was resized. As with most releases, we also have a batch of bug fixes. Also this wasn't mentioned in the last release's notes, but now if you load one of the bundled projects from the start page, it should now be saved for use offline. The icon in the top-left of the thumbnail changes from a cloud to a file icon if it's been saved. Some of the projects are quite large so only the ones you load are saved, but it means when you go offline you can still load any of the example projects you've previously opened.

Finally thanks to our translation contributors we've now added Hungarian as an in-progress translation! If you'd like to help out with translations then see this forum thread to get started.
