New this build: speech synthesis in the User Media plugin, and various bug fixes and tweaks. If all goes well the next update should be stable. So as ever please test carefully and report any issues you find, and we'll be updating the manual for all the new features since r152 in time for the next stable update. Happy testing!

Check out the new Speech Synthesis example to try out the new User Media feature. Right now you'll need to test in Chrome Canary or iOS 7 to see how it works, but support will be coming to Chrome stable (including other Chrome-based platforms like node-webkit and Crosswalk) and other browsers within the next few months.

We're also running a sale! Get a Personal, Business or Business upgrade at 33% off this week only. Don't miss out, the sale ends on Friday 17th!

Changelog

Add

User Media object: now supports speech synthesis (aka text-to-speech or TTS). Note this only works where the browser supports it. Right now it works on some iOS 7 devices and Chrome Canary; in future it should come to more browsers (including Firefox).

Add

New 'Speech synthesis' example to show off the new User Media feature

Change

Crosswalk/Android: the Browser object 'Back' action can now be used to perform the default back action (e.g. going to the previously open app)

Change

The 'Set canvas size' action would also change the parallax origin (which is half the initial window size). Generally this caused unwanted results, so changing the canvas size does not change the parallax origin any more.

Change

Windows Phone 8: export now hides the system tray by default (by setting shell:SystemTray.IsVisible="False" in MainPage.xml)

Change

Sprite Font: now uses the same default size as the normal Text object, and preserves its size when being cloned

Bug Fix

Preview over Wifi did not work in the Crosswalk Player app. It now works, but for the time being the system button detection is not working in the player app, although it should work once you build with the XDK.

Bug Fix

Tilemap: editing tilemaps on different layouts could edit the wrong tilemap and make it difficult to select a new tilemap

Bug Fix

Tilemap: could not always set tiles after resizing a tilemap larger at runtime

Bug Fix

WebGL shader effects on objects on rotated layers did not always display correctly

Bug Fix

Windows Phone 8: non-alphanumeric characters in the project name could break the export

Bug Fix

Windows Phone 8: now uses the full project name as the app title instead of the shortened name

Bug Fix

Pressing F10 in preview mode could make objects move faster or increase the framerate above 60

Looking forward to testing TTS feature. My project will be using TTS to meet ADA compliance requirement for educations. Hopefully this will get us over on hurdle I was dreading. Thanks for adding this feature.

Great Feature.. Once it's more supported on other browsers I'll use TTS.
