Hi, thanks for wanting to try out Defold Editor 2! Please note that this is a pre-release, meaning that we are still adding certain features and correcting issues to the software before its official release. The pre-release version of the editor is updated several times per week, so you won’t have to wait long for bug fixes.
If you encounter any issues, please go through the issues before reporting the issue and help us avoid duplicates. By using Help ▸ Report Issue in the editor to report an issue, you’ll automatically attach useful information. Worth mentioning is that Editor 2 will send errors to sentry.io, without asking for your permission.
Defold Editor 2 is 100% compatible with Editor 1, so you can always switch back if you want to.

Anything I need to know before I start?
Here are some things that are good to know:
The complete list of registered bugs can be found on Github.
I have a project created with Editor 1. Can I continue to work on my project with Editor 2?
Yes, the two versions of the Editor are 100% compatible. This means that you can create your project in Editor 1 and then switch to Editor 2 at any time you feel like it—even if the rest of your team stays on Editor 1. As there are some essential features missing in Editor 2, such as game bundling, you’ll need to open your project in Editor 1 in order to use certain features.
