GodotCon 2018 Poznań will be on October 10 & 11, and we have a great line-up of speakers from the Godot community who will share insights in their Godot-related work and workflow. Core contributors of the engine will also be there to introduce attendees to the inner workings of a Free and Open Source project like Godot, where everyone can get involved!
Build beautiful and gamified presentations with Godot Slides 2.0! The project ships with a 10 minutes multilingual pitch for you to give at gamedev meetups and other events, to introduce students to the engine... It's all drag-and-drop and, as you'd expect, open source.
Hacktoberfest 2018 has started, and you can contribute to Godot to earn a T-shirt (and experience!). Digital Ocean and GitHub sponsor this event that encourages everyone to contribute to any free and open source project on GitHub, including Godot's repositories. All pull requests count, so you can work either on the engine source code or on the documentation - there are things to do for everyone!
Godot gets a new Gold sponsor! In this case, we are welcoming Image Campus, an education institution located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which specializes in animation, digital art and video games.
Godot's FileSystem dock gets an improved tree view mode with files included in the tree, with thumbnails. This makes it much easier to go through project files from a single dock. Various improvements are also done to the favorites usability, right-click menu and the split view mode.
Simplex noise generation has just landed in Godot 3.1, using the unencumbered OpenSimplex implementation. It allows generation of 2D, 3D and 4D noise with a few lines of code with applications for procedural generation and visual effects.
Looking for a good chance to learn about Godot internals and development? Want to become a hero and help with the release of Godot 3.1? This is your chance!
Godot 3.1 is shaping up nicely, and the master branch is finally ready for wider testing from the community. With this snapshot, we're entering the alpha stage and focus will now be solely on bug fixing and stabilizing the development version, up until we release Godot 3.1-stable.
We're organizing a new GodotCon in Poznań, Poland on Wed 10 & Thu 11 October 2018, right before the Game Industry Conference (same location). Our lead developer Juan Linietsky will be there (flying in from Argentina), as well as many other core developers and Godot users, and we'd love you to join us there!

Godot 3.0.6 fixes an important security issue. In addition we've added the 'headless' build for CI use and fixed several C# issues.
Godot 2.1.5 is released with hundreds of bug fixes and enhancements made by the community over the last 11 months! It features various distribution changes for Android and iOS, as well as new platform features like hardware cursor acceleration and multitouch events. The binaries now come with the same crash handler as Godot 3.0, and dozens of improvements have been made to the "Godot 2 to 3 converter" which you can use to port your Godot 2 projects to the new format. Last but not least, this release fixes security vulnerabilities in Godot's marshalling code (also going to be fixed in Godot 3.0.6 in coming hours) which can affect Godot servers.
As some of you probably noticed a lot of PRs on the backlog now need a rebase because of PR 20137
Godot participates in the Google Summer of Code for the first year, and we have five students working on exciting projects: Godot Blender exporter; MIDI and SoundFont support; GDNative video decoders; WebRTC support for multiplayer games; Gear VR and Daydream support. In this post, our GSoC students give you an update on their current progress and the next steps for their projects.
