It's on our todo list, but we're a small team and we have a lot of feature requests, so we can't give an ETA for things like this. In the mean time you can probably work around it using sprites to mark "waypoints", and getting objects to move between them.

Waypoint--style movement can be done with events without too much trouble - however if you want smoothly curving paths you may run into a bit of trouble (it can be done, just takes a bit of math)

@Whiteclaws: Thats right.... But when i will become the Status Veteran then i learn "c" or "Python" or "Java". I like programs ala construct for the easy way to make Software ;) But at this time i make waypoints and a Bullet movement ;) @Asley: Thanks for the Speed-answer on saturday-evening....

This is also suggested here: http://www.scirra.com/FORUM/topic66035.html

but @BasicTribe, you need to wait a bit more, because something bug free need time.

Look the Golden Lotus game, was designed using sines as courses, and the bullet behavior.

So, believe you can make anything without much trouble, doing two objects to simulate a course, and setup behind the parabolic math when you want the object to follow start to bows (Y=aX^2+b)
