We strongly recommend all users update to this stable release to take advantage of new features and avoid running in to bugs or compatibility issues we’ve already fixed. We’ll shortly be getting back to our beta releases cycle; if you’d like to try updates and new features sooner and help test them, you can also update to our public beta releases. You can opt-in to beta updates from Preferences, or follow beta release announcements on our Facebook, Twitter or Google+ pages.
New example: Tilemaps (just a simple demo of the Tilemap plugin)
Tilemap plugin: help link now points to its new manual entry
Tilemap bar: right-click menu help link added and now points to its new manual entry
The new default editor color theme is now the ‘Windows 7’ theme. If you want to switch it back to what it used to be, there’s a new ‘Construct 2 original’ theme you can set in Preferences to get back the old colors.
Export to Kongregate: updated script reference to point to HTTPS-hosted URL
Tilemap plugin: renamed the object’s own AsJSON expression to TilesJSON since it conflicts with the new built-in instance save/load feature. Note: this will break existing projects that previously used the AsJSON expression, since it returns JSON data in a slightly different format (it is only the tile data, not the full object data). You will need to update any projects using this expression.
When the system DPI setting changes, Construct 2 automatically issues a ‘Reset dialogs’ the next time it starts up to prevent dialog positionings becoming messed up.
Node-webkit preview could leak files on disk in the AppData folder. Now it clears its cache whenever preview starts.
