By: Juan Linietsky Feb 26 - 2020

Godot communities keep growing steadily around the world. As a result, in the past years, many local groups related to Godot usage and development have started to appear in different continents, countries and cities.

Headsup: Vulkan merged, master branch unstable

By: Rémi Verschelde Feb 11 - 2020

Godot 3.2 was released two weeks ago, and it's now time to go full steam ahead towards our next milestone, Godot 4.0. The Vulkan port which had been worked on in a dedicated branch is now getting merged in our main development branch, which has a few implications on what to expect from the 'master' branch and how pending Pull Requests will be impacted.

Vulkan progress report #6

By: Juan Linietsky Jan 28 - 2020

It's been a while since the previous progress report, as I went on Vacation in November (did not take a vacation in years..), and December I had a lot of other engine related tasks that piled up that I had to solve. Work on Vulkan branch resumed at the beginning of January and significant progress was made already.

Release candidate: Godot 3.2 RC 4

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 27 - 2020

Last check before takeoff! This 4th release candidate should be the last one, meant to validate the current state of the `master` branch before releasing it as 3.2-stable! It's the last chance to test the new release and report any critical issue, otherwise its fix will have to wait for the 3.2.1 maintenance update in coming weeks.

Schedule for GodotCon 2020 in Brussels

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 26 - 2020

GodotCon Brussels 2020 starts in one week (3-4 Feb 2020), and many of us are already getting ready to travel to Brussels for the Godot Sprint and FOSDEM this week. Here's a first version of the schedule for the GodotCon, with presentations of the confirmed speakers. Note that we will likely have a few more talks added to the schedule in the coming days, and the current order is not final (hence why there is also no time schedule yet).

Release candidate: Godot 3.2 RC 3

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 24 - 2020

Third time's the charm, as they say! This third Release Candidate brings a number of bug fixes which have been contributed in the past week and are worth having in the upcoming 3.2 release. This new build should help validate them while also giving some more time to testers to find potential other regressions from Godot 3.1. The stable 3.2 release is now just around the corner :)

Release candidate: Godot 3.2 RC 2

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 20 - 2020

At long last, Godot 3.2 is nearing completion and we are happy to publish this second Release Candidate, to encourage a broad testing of what should become Godot 3.2-stable in coming days. RC 2 fixes a regression for some users with the GLES3 renderer, which preventing opening a project using the default environment due to heavy calculations for the irradience map generation.

Release candidate: Godot 3.2 RC 1

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 17 - 2020

At long last, Godot 3.2 is nearing completion and we are happy to publish this first Release Candidate, to encourage a broad testing of what should become Godot 3.2-stable in coming days. Godot 3.2 ends up being much bigger than we originally intended, but the 10 months of development amount to a major release that will be well worth upgrading to for any Godot user.
