While the rest of the Godot contributors are focused on finalizing 3.2 for release, I'm almost exclusively dedicated to porting the engine to Vulkan, as part of the 4.0 release effort. This is so far an exciting adventure and I'm learning a lot about it.

By: Yuri Roubinsky May 22 - 2019

With the Godot 3.1 release, the Visual Shader editor was recreated from the ashes of its Godot 2.x ancestor. While usable and packed with visual features, Visual Shaders lacked many features from their Shader (script) big brother. A new update has been prepared for Godot 3.2 to solve this problem.

Godot 3.2 will get a new Android plugin system

By: Juan Linietsky Apr 24 - 2019

Godot has the simplest and most efficient Android deploy system you can find in any game engine. With a single click, your project is runing on the phone. With a single option (network fs deploy) your gigabyte-sized project is running on your device in mere seconds. You can use the editor to debug your running game while it runs on your device and you can make changes in the scenes or scripts and they will reflect in real-time in your phone or tablet. The big drawback, however, was that adding plugins was a pain in the butt.

Atlas support returns to Godot 3.2

By: Juan Linietsky Apr 19 - 2019
