This build has a few changes and fixes, mostly tracking comparable updates to Construct 3. Firstly we've bumped up the target API level for Android exports to 26 (Android 8.0 Oreo). This will be required by the Google Play store later this year. We're making the change well ahead of this to allow plenty of time to iron out any issues that crop up. Additionally we now have a fix in for a notorious issue with long-press vibration in Android apps, so hopefully that is resolved now.

There's a couple of extra fixes, particularly an issue with loading savegames using the Physics behavior, and ensuring the Pathfinding behavior works in Cordova iOS apps. Hopefully things will be working more smoothly with these, and if all goes to plan we can bring these changes to a stable release soon.

Thanks for the stable update but next time I would really appreciate a heads up before essentially wiping all package.json files!
