Complete release notes for the current and previous versions of the engine.
Newest version: 1.2.158
Jun 11, 2014 Release channels
Automatic updates does NOT work for 1.2.38 and you must download 1.2.38 manually. This is due to a new Java version and a known bug in the Eclipse p2 distribution system (file-locking and Windows).
Distribution and new download site, stable and beta channels
iOS SDK 7.1
facebook.login() is compatible with coroutines (as are the other extension functions dealing with call-back arguments)
The device detection system is more tolerant with poorly formatted responses from devices
Java is now bundled in the OS X version

The download site has been rewritten from the ground up and is now located at http://d.defold.com. By default http://d.defold.com redirects to the stable channel http://d.defold.com/stable. The site contains links to defold but also related artifacts, e.g. dmengine, etc. Moreover, we've created packages for resources required for custom packaging previously extracted from plugins:
Additionally we keep previous released versions such that a project can pin to a specific version. The URL syntax is /archive/SHA1/... where SHA1 is the release identifier. In order to always use latest version a meta-info files in json-format is available on the site: http://d.defold.com/stable/info.json
With release 1.2.38 we have support for release channels--stable and beta. The stable channel is default and the primary purpose for the beta channel is to simplify the QA-process and to pre-release features for testing to stakeholders. The beta product's splash is branded with a beta-ribbon and the launch icon is colored differently.
