Complete release notes for the current and previous versions of the engine.
Newest version: 1.2.162
We've done a bit of work related to the font rendering. There's now a new
render mode property in the font that dictate how fonts should be rendered. Currently, there's only two modes available -
Single Layer and
Multi Layer that either renders the text on a single quad or on separate quads per character. This means that things like drop shadow and large outlines can easily be achieved.
The default builtin font shaders have been updated to support this new functionality, so please update your custom shaders if you want to access this new feature.
It is now possible to add custom entitlements to your project which will be used in signing the ipa during bundling. Any custom entitlements must be defined with wildcard values in your provisioning profile as well (https://www.defold.com/manuals/project-settings/#_ios).
Hot reload now does better dependency tracking. Hot reloading a resource now reloads dependant resources as well. We've also fixed the hotloading of atlases in Editor 2.
