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.

Dev snapshot: Godot 3.2 beta 6

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 11 - 2020

After a very busy week with many important bug fixes (plus a bunch of low risk enhancements and a lot of documentation updates), here's Godot 3.2 beta 6! As mentioned in the previous post, we're close to the Release Candidate stage and I hesitated to name this build as such. Since there were a number of big changes though I opted for making it another beta, and if all goes well testing it we should have a RC 1 in coming days.

By: Rémi Verschelde Jan 03 - 2020

Happy new year! After a brief holiday where contributors kept fixing many issues, we now release Godot 3.2 beta 5 to iterate upon the relatively good state that we had with the previous beta. Both the master branch and the official buildsystem are now starting to be quite reliable, and we should be ready for a release candidate soon.

Dev snapshot: Godot 3.2 beta 3

By: Rémi Verschelde Dec 04 - 2019

Many fixes have been applied since our previous beta build, encompassing rendering issues, port-specific issues notably on iOS and Windows, and many other fixes all around the editor. Due to issues with our build process, this release does not include the usual Mono build, but we are hard at work to fix it and provide a Mono build again with 3.2 beta 4.

Release candidate: Godot 3.1.2 RC 1

By: Rémi Verschelde Nov 13 - 2019

It's been over 6 months since Godot 3.1.1-stable, so the upcoming 3.1.2 release is both long overdue and accordingly packed with important bug fixes and enhancements. As we cherry-picked close to 400 commits to the 3.1 branch since the previous release, extensive testing is necessary to ensure that no regression crept in under disguise of a bugfix. This is why we publish this release candidate for 3.1.2 to gather test reports from the community.

Dev snapshot: Godot 3.2 beta 1

By: Rémi Verschelde Nov 06 - 2019

After three well-tested and quite stable alpha builds, we're now ready to enter the beta stage for the upcoming Godot 3.2 release. The beta stage corresponds for us to a release freeze, which means that we will only consider critical bug fixes for merging in the master branch, and that until Godot 3.2 is released.
