We're making some improvements to highlight the difference between stable and beta releases. This build will tell you in the page title and About dialog whether you're using a beta or stable release so it's easier to find out. We've also improved some aspects of saving and opening projects. In particular previously if you tried to open a project in an older version of C3 than the one it was saved in, it would just say "Failed to open project". From this release onwards you should see a more useful error message telling you which version the project was saved in and which version you're using.

There's also a new GetDefault expression for the Dictionary object to return a custom value if the key is missing. The Physics behavior has also been updated to better handle changing object sizes as the object is moving. As ever there are a few more other bug fixes.

Remember that you must visit this beta release directly to use it. Click the Launch r87 button above to use this release. Unfortunately at the moment users on r86 won't be automatically notified when a new beta release comes out; we hope to add some new notifications to help people opt-in to beta releases and stay up-to-date with them if they're happy to use them.
