Email Me New Releases
Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
This release adds the ability to erase with drawing tools in the Animations Editor by setting the alpha to zero. It's a convenient way to erase and also allows for different erase shapes. There have been several other improvements and fixes to the Animations Editor; see the changelog for full details.
We've also made a few more SDK improvements. For users, you can now multi-select addons to install from the Addon Manager, which makes it a bit easier to batch-install addons. You'll also be notified when adding a new addon that can't be bundled when 'Bundle addons' is enabled. For developers, there's a new read-only property type, a fix for CSS dependencies, and addons should now be translatable too.
Finally we spent the last two weeks or so in a "bug bash" at Scirra - a concerted effort to investigate and close off old bugs. It took some time to make progress but we've closed around half of our outstanding bugs. As part of that we once again have a big batch of bug fixes in this release! We'll be back to our normal schedule soon so we can focus on new features once again. Please remember that we spend a huge amount of developer time just on bugs, and you can help make sure we can spend more time on new features by filing useful bug reports that follow the guidelines as closely as possible.
