Complete release notes for the current and previous versions of the engine.
Newest version: 1.2.138
This release adds a new orientation option for particle effects. We have also replaced the
--debug option for Bob, and "release" option in Editor dialogs, with "engine variants", see section below.
Bundling a project (either with Editor or Bob) now supports three variants, this replaces the --debug option in Bob and the Release option in the editor bundle dialog. Bundling release builds from the Editor now yields a real release build when the project contains native extensions without the need for an application manifest. Editor bundling can also target headless builds for desktop targets (Linux, MacOS and Windows).
We have added a new particle orientation mode for emitters; angular velocity. This will enable you to have particles spinning at different speeds. They can be controlled over a particles lifetime, for example having particles start rotating at one speed to slowly come to a halt.
We have previously removed the official support for Linux 32 bit engine builds, and now the time has come to remove that platform entirely from our builds (it has been available via
bob.jar). The main reason is that it is too cumbersome to maintain, and we see that the usage of 32 bit Linux platforms is very small nowadays. On the same note, we’re removing the 32 bit macOS builds from
bob.jar as well since the earliest os version we support is macOS 10.7 (Lion), which is a 64 bit platform.

Long-running tasks such as bundling, building and saving are now performed on a background thread, with a progress bar in the lower left corner. Actions that modify the project on disk are disabled while this is happening, but otherwise you can keep working in the editor while you wait for the task to complete. We also make sure that changes made outside the editor are seen by the editor before saving. Note that if an unsaved file is also changed externally, the external version will win, and your unsaved changes will be lost.
