GDNative is here!

A short introduction to the new GDNative module (formerly DLScript) and how to use it in a project. This is a very early version, but the overall process will stay the same.

Get ready to Meet the Nodes in person: we are organising a Godot event on Saturday 22 April 2017 in Paris, where many Godot developers will be giving talks, lead workshops or just be available to discuss the engine and game development! This will be a great occasion for European community members to meet Godot's lead developer, Juan Linietsky (reduz), who usually lives in Argentina.

Godot 3.0, new progress report and GDC

February was spent mostly rewriting the import and export workflow of Godot, so not many pretty visual features were added. At the end of the month, I also went to San Francisco for GDC.

Godot 3.0 new internals, progress report #4

Most of the internal code in Godot was written over a decade ago, and many design decisions that were taken back then, did not stand the test of time. January was spent mostly updating Godot internals and breaking compatibility, now that we have the chance.

WARNING: HEAD is going unstable!

Starting now, and only for the upcoming 3.0 release, HEAD will break compatibility completely. Projects from Godot 1.x and 2.x **will not work** and this is expected.

Godot's new renderer, progress report #3

It's been a month since the second progress report, and progress continues towards the new Godot renderer. This milestone was (and will likely be) the most difficult, due to the techniques that had to be implemented.

Godot's new renderer, progress report #2

It's been a month since the first [progress report](https://godotengine.org/article/godots-new-renderer-progress-report-1), and progress continues towards the new Godot renderer. Little by little every system falls into place, and rendering starts feeling a lot more mature.

Onward to the new 3D renderer

We decided to skip the planned 2.2 release to work at full steam on the upcoming Godot 3.0 and its new OpenGL ES 3.0 / OpenGL 3.3 renderer. We aim for a Godot 3.0 release in the first quarter of 2017, and it should bring an incredible load of features and improvements. Juan Linietsky will also be working full-time on Godot for the coming months thanks to the Mozilla MOSS award that we received earlier this year.
