By: Rémi Verschelde 17 March 2021

We decide to rename the upcoming 3.2.4 release to Godot 3.3 to better advertize that it's a big milestone with tons of new features! It's still fully compatible with previous Godot 3.2.x releases as one would have expected of 3.2.4, so it will be a recommended update for all Godot users. Moreover, we'll start working on Godot 3.4 in parallel to providing bugfix releases for 3.3.x at a faster pace.

Release candidate: Godot 3.2.4 RC 5

By: Rémi Verschelde 13 March 2021

Godot 3.2.4 is going to be incredibly feature-packed, and we're taking the time necessary to ensure that it will also be stable. We had a fourth Release Candidate a few days ago which got good testing and helped surface various bugs, many of which have been fixed. So we're now making a RC 5 build to keep iterating fast and make sure that the bug fixes work as expected. Thanks to all pre-release testers who help us find and debug regressions!
