We've had another influx of bug reports coinciding with the gamejam, and we've already fixed a big batch of them! We're getting great feedback so far, so please keep it coming, and we hope you're enjoying using the full version of Construct 3!

One of the more visible changes this release is we've madeRemote Previewa bit easier to find by adding it in more places in the UI. The 'Preview' button is also now present on mobile, and on desktop it has a small dropdown so you can choose different kinds of preview.
