This is just a bug fix release - we're still working on animations.

Since graphics card drivers are often sources of problems in the editor, the About dialog now has a "Check for driver update..." link. This will take you to your graphics card manufacturer's website to download the latest drivers, if it recognises the card type, otherwise it'll take you to here. Let me know if you have a graphics card which isn't ATI, AMD, Intel or nVidia - I'm not aware of any!

Changelog

Change

'Check for driver update...' link in About dialog OpenGL section.

Change

System action 'Set group active' now has a 'Toggle' option.

Change

Angle condition 'Is between angles', e.g. 'Is Sprite between 0 and 45 degrees'. This works with angle-wrapping so is better than doing an ordinary 'compare value' on the angle.

Change

Picture editor: is now modeless (you can use the rest of the UI while it is open)

Change

Picture editor: some old graphics cards or systems do not support the picture editor. On these systems, the system image editor is launched instead, like it used to. The message also suggests updating your drivers, which may fix it for some users. (I'm going to try some workarounds to see if I can support those cards.)

Change

System 'Is group active' and 'Set group active': these are now able to check the group name you typed exists in the project. This should help prevent typos causing bugs.

Change

Layer parameters in actions and conditions: these are now able to check the layer name or number you entered is valid in the project. This should also help prevent typo bugs.

Change

Cropping a tiled background texture doesn't add a 1px transparent border any more. (It still does with Sprite.)

Change

Resizing a sprite texture now also proportionally resizes the sprite object (e.g. making its texture twice as wide makes the object twice as wide, no matter how it's been resized).

Bug Fix

Changing the type of an instance variable sometimes left invalid events behind

Bug Fix

'Self' did not autocomplete in parameters dialog.

"Is between angles" this will come in handy!

Oh, what about negative angles? Setting angles to negative values would help and solve many issues for many people :)

... I think this is much better place for commenting "releases" then messing up the forum!

Again, great job guys!

Really? What do you use negative angles for? O_o -10 degrees is the same as 350 degrees... I think you can even enter negative angles and it'll wrap them round anyway. Try it!

I was messing some time age with something like that:
left arrow and right arrow turn the sprite1 respectively 15 degrees left and right by variables (vaiables showed me actually 0-15 degrees, and -15-0 degrees) and another sprite2 who was moving from side to side depending on angle of sprite1. I

Decemer, what sort of error does it give? When reporting crashes, the more details we know the more likely we are to be able to fix it promptly!

Construct is cool. Finally, I create the game easy and fun always dreamed about.

Excellent job.

I found a bug. After creating a new application, on the right side, changing the name on the same layer but with a capital letter, the program can not change.

I do not know if I helped, I think that google translator is not working properly :P
