New this build: a new renderDetail system expression, a set layer force own texture action, and a batch of bug fixes. We're due a stable release soon, so please test carefully and report any issues you find to the Bugs forum following all the guidelines, and all being well r206 can be stable!



New 'rendererDetail' system expression. This requires WebGL support and currently only supported by Chrome and IE. It returns a string with the renderer hardware and vendor information, e.g. "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660", "NVIDIA Tegra", "Adreno 330" etc. or "(unavailable)" if not supported or unknown. The exact content varies and you should not rely on this string having any particular content, but it can be useful to search for keywords and perhaps adapt the default display quality settings accordingly, or identifying which GPU is really in use in dual-GPU systems.


System action: 'Set layer force own texture'


The runtime should now be able to track mouse click-and-drags outside of the window/iframe.

Bug Fix

Possible Javascript error publishing to Scirra Arcade

Bug Fix

Spritefont: now saves and loads alignment when using savegames

Bug Fix

Workaround for an iOS 8 Safari bug: if 'Fullscreen mode' is 'Off', the runtime now effectively disables high-DPI mode, since a bug in Safari appears to cause the canvas to be impossible to size correctly. Other fullscreen modes (e.g. letterbox scale) are not affected.

Bug Fix

Object bar: now updates properties bar and layout view selection when navigating by arrow keys

Bug Fix

Tilemap: editing the image then immediately choosing "Save as" may not have saved the project with the new image

Bug Fix

Possible javascript error using a global array in a container

Bug Fix

Project bar: keeps showing object properties after renaming an object type

Bug Fix

XML object: in IE, StringValue expression can now return the correct result even without the text() XPath suffix, like other browsers

Bug Fix

Audio: 'Is playing' did not work correctly after 'Seek'
