Greetings everyone! I’ve gathered up some info to share with you guys, enjoy!:

  1. Release 12 for Windows users. (This is the Windows version of Mac creators’ release 0.12.10) We’re still working hard on getting Windows Creator up to date with our Mac Creator. One such thing that’s currently being looked at is: Adding the expression editor to the open URL behavior. Also we’re hoping to have a new nightly build for Windows in a few weeks!

  2. Release 0.13.0. for Mac users. (The next big release for Macs) Work is coming along on this and there should be a new nightly build out in the near future for you guys to mess around with some of the new features! For those who don’t know, a couple of the major additions that will come with release 13 are Facebook integration and the new rendering system. It’s my understanding that our first pass at Facebook integration will include being able to post to walls (images, text, and even URLs). The new rendering system should bring improved performance and memory usage with it!

  3. New nightly build for Mac. I’ve heard that there’s some bugs blocking us from releasing this to you guys and that we’ll be looking into fixing them Monday. One such blocker is: “Android Viewer crashes while attempting to load a project”

  4. New marketplace. I hope you guys are enjoying the snazzy new homepage! Work on the marketplace is coming along and I’ve heard our web guys are also working on updating other pages of the website as well (such as the downloads and pricing pages)!

  5. GameSalad Game Jam 2014! Our second Game Jam is currently going on with the theme of “old school”. Check out the following thread for details on how you could win a free year of Pro, a Kindle Fire HDX, or even $1000 cash!

  6. Cross platform creator. Great progress here and we’re still keeping quiet, but looking forward to sharing time! :)

  7. Playstogether. I’ve been informed you guys will be able to mess around with Playstogether in the upcoming nightly build! I’ve also heard that Steve J will be presenting a talk about how to use Playstogether with GameSalad at the January GameSalad meetup.

Speaking of monthly meetups, our December GameSalad meetup will have a panel of Stephen Nichols (codewizard) and Alan Uthoff (BlackCloakGS) to attend online or in person if you have questions to ask codewizard :) For more info check out this thread:

One more thing: I’ve heard that video ads for Chartboost work in our current stable release (0.12.10) and have been tested by our QA team!

Alright, that’s all for this week. More info coming at you guys next week!
