This build includes a few bug fixes, the most important probably being a fix for a memory leak in long-running physics games. Now these games should be able to run indefinitely without eventually running in to a crash. There's a couple of other updates as well.

Since the release of Construct 3, the release cycle of Construct 2 has slowed down as we have moved to only maintaining it with bug fixes. New features will only be added to Construct 3 at this point. Consequently we think that our past release schedule of several beta releases followed by a stable release will be too slow from now on. We think a better cycle would be to simply alternate beta and stable releases, so that fixes reach the stable channel more quickly. Of course beta releases may still occasionally have new issues requiring a follow-up beta release, but the general idea will be to do a beta release, ensure there are no new issues, then move those fixes to the stable channel. This ought to be a better fit at this point in Construct 2's lifecycle. If you want more frequent updates and new features, consider upgrading to Construct 3.

Thank you!
Most recent FB version is v2.12?
Possible to add Achievement post/get to the plugin? Would really be useful!

Sad to hear about the end of new features for Construct 2, but I think it's probably for the best at this point in it's life cycle. This'll let you guys focus on making sure Construct 3 is the best it can be while still throwing in the minor fixes for C2 users to finish up old projects, or just to have it as a more affordable option for smaller devs.

I'll probably be making the move to Construct 3 after finishing my current project. I've played around with it some already, and there's so much new stuff I can't wait to play around with!
Wish the best for you guys and the community moving forward :)

Don't use new versions since r226, because use 4k resolution. The entire interface is huge, with large spaces, not beautiful.
I do not understand why they did it. It would be better if the letters in the "add event" window were not lost.

Eventually C2 will completely phase out, but even then, it'll still remain an extremely powerful tool. Well done, Scirra Bros!
