The main reason for this release is to fix a bug using event variables that was introduced in r20. However there's also a few other bits of on-going development thrown in, such as snap-to-grid in the animations editor, and the ability to directly open .zip files if they contain a .c3proj or .c3p file.

There's also a new setting to "Use in-app clipboard". This stops trying to use the real clipboard at all, and only uses an in-memory clipboard. This means you can only copy and paste things within that editor window, and Construct 3's clipboard won't be affected by copying elsewhere. However the benefit is it completely avoids the copy prompts that appear when the browser did not let Construct 3 write to the clipboard. One last change is using the Paste menu option in the Layout View directly pastes the copied instances where you already clicked, rather than moving to the crosshair. These changes are meant to make Construct 3 more convenient to use in other form factors, especially with a tablet or touch/pen input.
