I have used Godot for over a year at this point. It's my favorite engine and I'm eagerly waiting for Godot 4 like most!

My issue is that I'm trying to get linear_velocity in a RigidBody3D, and get the local z component of that. Without it being local, the z component will not represent the forward force. I just want to get the forward force of the rigidbody. In Godot 3.X, we'd use transform.basis.xform_inv(linear_velocty), but it appears this method has been removed entirely from Basis in Godot 4. Here is my code:

extends RigidBody3D

var real_speed : float = 0

func set_inputs(vertical : float, horizontal : float):

func _physics_process(delta):
    linear_velocity = transform.basis.z * -20

func _integrate_forces(state):
    real_speed = linear_velocity.z

Is there a method that I don't know about in the new API? Thanks in advance!

Edit: There seems to be a Transform2D method for basis_xform() and basis_xform_inv(). I wonder why a 3D version doesn't exist...

Second Edit: Hmm. In the Transform3D header file, there is an implementation of this method. So why isn't it in GDScript?
