Maintenance release: Godot 3.0.2

By: Hein-Pieter van Braam Mar 04, 2018

This is a fairly small release but still something to be excited about! We found some small issues with the 3.0.1 release that we've decided were worth releasing a 3.0.2 for, the most important fix being that it's now again possible to run an individual scene of a project that does not have a main scene set. Rémi also found the reason why tooltips were disappearing for some users, a bug that we've had for a long time.

We also have some love for C# users in this release: There was a regression using transforms from C#, and the commits that caused them have been reverted. Godot will now also no longer crash if you have a .mono directory created by an older release. This should make the C# workflow a lot better from now on.

As usual you can go directly to our Download page to download the new release. Both the itch.io and Steam distributions have been updated.

Our release schedule for the stable releases are somewhat dictated by the severity of issues we find and fix. However, we don't plan to do weekly releases as a rule. Unless another important problem or regression is found, we expect to release 3.0.3 some time near the end of March.

I'd also like to thank all of our wonderful and outrageously attractive contributors for their work on 3.0.2!

Known incompatibilities with Godot 3.0.1

None

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 3.0.2

  • 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.
