Stable update r221 includes significant changes to NW.js support as well as lots of important bug fixes and improvements since r216.

Breaking change: NW.js support

NW.js recently made significant changes for the 0.13 update which required changes in Construct 2. There is more information in the r217 release notes. However in short:

  • NW.js 0.12.x and older only works with Construct 2 r216 and older
  • NW.js 0.13+ only works with Construct 2 r217 and newer

Consequently if you are updating from r216 or older, you must update NW.js. When updating, please visit and download and install the latest version of NW.js. The editor should notify you to do this the first time you try to export to NW.js, but you should do this immediately to avoid any chance of a broken export. Remember if for any reason you ever need to downgrade to Construct 2 r216 or older, similarly you will need to reinstall an older version of NW.js again.

NW.js 0.13.0 beta 4 is being released simultaneously with this stable update, however NW.js updates are coming more frequently now, so be on the lookout for newer versions.

Changes since r216

For full details of what's new since r216, see the intervening release notes:

  • r217 (11 changes): support for NW.js 0.13+, new 'findCase' system expression, bug fixes
  • r218 (6 changes): new canvas video recording feature, support for touch width, height and pressure
  • r219 (12 changes): bug fixes and improvements
  • r220 (12 changes): NW.js integration fixes, more bug fixes

If the download is going slowly or is unreliable on your connection, try the Alternative Torrent Download link beneath the Download button.

We strongly recommend all users update to this stable release to take advantage of new features and avoid running in to bugs or compatibility issues we've already fixed. If you'd like to try updates and new features sooner and help test them, you can also update to our public beta releases. You can opt-in to beta updates from Preferences, or follow beta release announcements on our Facebook, Twitter or Google+ pages, or by subscribing to email notifications in your profile settings.
