Notes

This build introduces a new Enter access code option in the account menu. This is intended for educational customers: you can use the new seat management system to create a time-limited access code for running classes with the full features of Construct 3! On the other hand if you use Construct 3 for personal or business use this probably doesn't apply to you, so you can ignore the new option.

One more significant change is we've now split the Cordova export option in to separate Android and iOS exporters. Both still use Cordova much like doing a Cordova export with just one platform selected previously. The main reason we've done this is because it's difficult to manage per-platform dependencies. For example iOS requires extra Cordova plugins to be applied for WKWebView to work, as well as needing a bundled software Opus decoder. If you build for Android at the same time, these unnecessary plugins and dependencies get thrown in to the Android build as well, which bloats the APK. In some cases the reverse also happens, and Android dependencies get bundled with iOS. By limiting builds to a single platform, we can ensure you get the minimum necessary dependencies bundled in the app.

Other than that, there's the usual batch of additions, changes and bug fixes!
