Release candidate: Godot 3.5.1 RC 2
By: Rémi Verschelde 21 September 2022
We released Godot 3.5 in early August, and like any release, there are few rough edges to iron out which warrant making maintenance "patch" releases (3.5.x). This is the second Release Candidate to validate the upcoming 3.5.1 stable release.
