This is a stable update to incorporate fixes from r253 and r254. As noted previously, we are only maintaining Construct 2 with bug fixes at this point. New features will only be added to Construct 3. Consequently we are adjusting the release cycle of Construct 2 to make sure fixes reach the stable channel in a timely fashion. Previously we would have around 6 beta releases between stable releases, but we now feel a better approach is to have 1-2 bug fixing beta releases followed by a stable release to make those fixes available to everyone. One benefit of this approach is we will probably actually end up having more frequent stable releases than we had last year, albeit with smaller changes.

Since r252 the main improvements are in two areas. The first is the Physics behavior, including a fix for a memory leak in long-running games, and improving the handling of Physics objects that change size. The second is the Video plugin, which now works better in iOS apps, and has better handling of autoplay, including the ability to automatically autoplay without user input in Cordova apps.

The new Addon Exchange

We recently launched a new Addon Exchange - a central place to find and submit third-party addons for Construct 2 and Construct 3. If you're looking for addons, take a look at the Construct 2 section of the Addon Exchange. If you're an addon developer, it's a great place to share your addons with users.

A note about Cordova exports

Last year there were some changes around how mobile exports work. We still regularly see questions about this, so to reiterate, in 2018 these are our recommended options for publishing Cordova apps from C2:

  1. Use C3's mobile app build service to build C2 exports.
  2. Use a third-party build service like PhoneGap Build.
  3. Use the Cordova CLI. This is a free manual build tool that works offline. (This option is more appropriate for advanced users.)

Not with C2.
As stated by Ashley: ".....we are only maintaining Construct 2 with bug fixes at this point. New features will only be added to Construct 3."

Thank you for the update! Although I have a license for C3, I am using C2 while waiting for stable C3 desktop version.

Installed, tested my game, immediately got an error that did not exist in the previous version. I will upload the image of the error message to the forums, for now I'm reverting versions.
