[size=85:ii8cxtk9]This is an unstable build. You can help Construct's development by downloading it, trying it out, testing and reporting bugs. If you have projects you want to work on without possible bugs getting in the way, stick to stable builds.
Link to previous build (0.99.85) changelog[/size:ii8cxtk9]

Thanks to Davo for most of the changes this build - he's really worked hard and done some cool fixes and additions :) We're back on track for a 1.0 release as next major version - the following 0.99.9x builds should be becoming more stable ready for release candidacy.

[size=150:ii8cxtk9]Changelog[/size:ii8cxtk9]
Platform Movement
[FIX] - Fixed but where 0 deceleration meant you shouldn't turn to the right once you'd reached the max speed
[FIX] - Collision detection errors where sometimes you might be 0.4 pixels into a wall, fixing this also fixed the jumping up a wall bug
[FIX] - Running down a slope and jumping now produces the same jump strength as a regular jump
[FIX] - Jumping sometimes getting stuck in the ceiling
[FIX] - Jumping upwards onto a slope didn't reset the Y velocity to 0... making it seem like you were jumping up a slope

Object Bar
[ADD] - In the ribbon you can now hide and show the bar by clicking the 'Object Bar' button above Animation Bar. Finally you can hide and show that 'pesky little bar'

Animation Bar
[FIX] - Holding control now successfully duplicates the animation and its frames

Event Sheet Editor
[FIX] - Fixed some memory leaks with icons in the event wizard
[FIX] - "hello" no longer becomes "hello^. It was caused by clipping of drawtext

Panel Object
[FIX] - Panel object didn't rotate property

Shadow Caster & Light
[ADD] - You can now create a polygon shape for your shadow
[FIX] - Can now set, add, subtract private variables and it works :P

Custom Movement
[FIX] - Can now change movement speed and movement angle during the stepping stage. This should make it easy to do sonic style movements where you need to 'trace' along the walls as you move

Window Object
[ADD] - You can now use 'ClientWidth' and 'ClientHeight' to get the width and height of the client area of the window.
[ADD] - 'Restore' - So you can restore the window if its maximized or minimized

Sprite Object
[FIX] - Distortion problems with sprites whose images and object sizes didn't match
[FIX] - Absolute distortion point now works even when the object is rotated

Misc
[ADD] - Added new '3d object' just to annoy Quazi
[ADD] - Added new 'Portal Maths' object - helps with doing the maths for portals
[ADD] - Added new 'Sprite Ribbon' object that makes creating ribbons and trails easier
[FIX] - Missing fixes from last build compiled in to this build
[FIX] - Fixed the control system. Control states are reset between behaviors onFrame and the event cycle. 360 Controller updates the states in OnFrame2. Allows events to change the control states.

Shadow caster behavior seems to be broken, if i add it to any object, it will crash. Otherwise, great update!

the .obj file doesn't seem to work, whenever I tried using it Construct crashed, I downloaded an ak47 model of an .obj from this site.

http://www.oyonale.com/modeles.php?lang=en&page=48

and whenever I put the model path in the 3D object .obj model path my game crashes, is it because it uses too many polygons? either way I don't have time to test it more for now so this is only a small test I made and I got crashes.

Also as Porlo said I get Temp.exe stopped working on Vista whenever I added the shadow caster.

New version WHOOO

The OBJ object crashes if you load a model with too many polygons on my machine too. Try something with less and it seems to work fine.

Seems you need 3D layering and power of 2 textures for 3d objects to work best. I imported a sphere and used 1024x512 texture of Earth, yet my FPS is still high.

Nice job :) now we need some 3D math plugin :P Ain't gonna be easy to make Moon orbit Earth, yeah?
