This build brings mainly bug fixes and tweaks - notably improvements to the User Media object's camera input, which can now correctly select the input source and preserve the camera display aspect ratio. There's also a new ability to add an optional 'Back' button to the caption of Windows 10 Store apps on desktop, which also triggers the Browser object's 'On back button'. Windows 10 Store apps also no longer depend on the WinJS library, which should bring a bit of an improvement on app download size, memory use and startup time.

The new 'Set back button visible' action went in the "Windows 8" plugin, but the name is somewhat misleading now, so we also renamed the plugin to "Windows Store" instead to more clearly identify that it works with Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.



Windows Store plugin: added "Set back button visible" action. This can show/hide a 'Back' button in the caption for desktop apps (the back button cannot be hidden on mobile). Pressing it triggers the Browser object's 'On back button' like on mobile.


AJAX plugin: 'On any completed', 'On any error' triggers; 'Tag' expression


System 'On save failed' trigger. For example can be triggered if the user disables all local storage in their browser settings.


Windows 8 plugin: renamed to "Windows Store"


Cordova iOS: in WKWebView mode, can still start up if the cordova-httpd server plugin is unavailable, but note it will probably be unable to play video (since the HTTP server is necessary to work around WKWebView limitations for video playback). This should improve robustness against different build systems that may not automatically use C2's exported list of Cordova plugins.


Restored audio encoders from r221 in the 32-bit build, since there seemed to be a problem with them in r227.


Windows 10 apps: now no longer depends on WinJS library, which makes apps a bit smaller and more efficient

Bug Fix

User Media: now maintains aspect ratio when displaying camera feed

Bug Fix

User Media: fix support for selecting specific camera. Spec changes make this hard to support cross-browser, so now it relies on the WebRTC adapter.js library to try to improve cross-browser support.

Bug Fix

Pathfinding behavior: could sometimes find paths across diagonals when it should not have been able to

Bug Fix

Picture editor: Ctrl+X/C/V should now work with tool options (e.g. origin position)

Bug Fix

Sprite: animations did not always start playing if the initial animation was not the default

Bug Fix

Mouse is over object/is touching object did not always work correctly in OR blocks

Bug Fix

Runtime: should now correctly respond to window size changes/orientation changes while loading
