Maintenance release: Godot 3.0.4

By: Hein-Pieter van Braam Jun 22, 2018

Welcome to Godot 3.0.4. This is a bit of a brown paper bag release. There is a bug in 3.0.3 causing crashing of the asset library on systems with low threadcount CPUs. This was missed as I did testing only with machines of 8 threads and higher. This bug in itself wouldn't be the worst but for many new users this is the first interaction with Godot they have. This is why we decided on this tiny release.

We took this opportunity to add some documentation fixes as well as a fix for Bullet physics to allow Marc Gilleron (Zylann)'s terrain plugin to function with Godot 3.0.4.

If you are not affected by the asset library bug and do not need the terrain plugin there is no need to upgrade to Godot 3.0.4.

We're planning for a larger 3.0.5 soon with Android exporting fixed and other bug/feature PRs merged.

As usual you can go directly to our Download page to download the new release. Itch.io and Steam releases have been updated too. Please note that for the Mono releases you must use Mono 5.12.0 on all platforms.

I'd like to thank everyone involved in this release. I'll be the one wearing the brown paper bag.

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 3.0.4

  • 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.
  • When exporting to iOS you get an error about missing or corrupt templates if the App Store Team Id or Required Icons are not set even if the templates are installed.
  • APKs exported using the editor have placeholder permissions. If you don't have a privacy policy for your game it will be rejected from the App store. We have a tool to work around this issue available.
