Dev snapshot: Godot 3.0.3 RC 2

By: Hein-Pieter van Braam May 14, 2018

We're pleased to announce the second release candidate for what will become Godot 3.0.3. We've added quite a few bugfixes compared to rc1 and a port of RandomShaper's mouse input emulation code.

For this release I've had to redo our buildsystem (again) due to trouble with the rc1 packages. This is why it took a while to get rc2 out. I believe the problems have now been solved but please test on all your platforms! The most important user-visible changes compared to rc1 are that now the Mono builds should work on all platforms, and rc2 restores support for Windows 7. Windows 7 compatibility is now also being tested before releases happen.

Please test this release with your existing projects and as usual: Any breakage of existing projects after upgrading is a bug. If we somehow missed something please report a bug.

I'd like to take this time to thank all of our wonderful contributers who made this releases possible. You're the best! Thank you for all your contributions, be it code, docs, or bugreports.

Known incompatibilities with Godot 3.0

  • If you use the Bullet physics engine and relied on the fact that the calculated effective gravity on KinematicBodies was always '0' then you will need to fix your code as this is now correctly calculated. See #15554 for details.
  • Setting the v member of a color did not properly set the s member. This is now corrected. See #16916 for details.
  • RichTextLabels did not properly determine the baseline of all fonts. If you relied on the look of the previous implementation please let us know. See #15711 for details.
  • SpinBoxes didn't calculate their width properly. This is now fixed but could subtly change your GUI layout. See #16432 for details.
  • OGG streams now correctly signal the end of playback. If you were relying on this not happening please let us know. See #15910 for details.

Known bugs in Godot 3.0.3

  • Vector3.snapped() does not work and just returns the original Vector3. Fixing this would have meant breaking ABI between Godot 3.0 and 3.0.2 so this function will remain non-functional.
  • move_and_slide() doesn't quite work correctly. An easy workaround is to increase the safe margin to 0.05 (or higher if required). It is not yet clear how to implement the proper fix without impacting users who already implemented this workaround in their projects. See issue #16459 for an explanation.
  • Some users report crashes on Windows 10 after a recent Windows update. We currently don't know what is causing this.
