Release candidate: Godot 3.5.1 RC 2
By: Rémi Verschelde 21 September 2022
We released Godot 3.5 in early August, and like any release, there are few rough edges to iron out which warrant making maintenance "patch" releases (3.5.x).
We've had successful testing of a first Release Candidate for 3.5.1, and a few more fixes got backported in the meantime so let's have another round of testing before publishing 3.5.1 stable.
Please give it a try if you can. It should be as safe to use as 3.5-stable is, but we still need a significant number of users to try it out and report how it goes to make sure that the few changes in this update are working as intended and not introducing new regressions.
As usual, you can try it live with the online version of the Godot editor updated for this release.
