State of GameSalad on 5-1-2015
Hello again all you GameSalad fans! Once again I’ve gathered some info on what we’ve been working / focused on to share with you guys, enjoy!
Alpha testing for the new marketplace is beginning today and we have already begun sending out alpha testing invitations! Our primary focus is still getting out new stable versions for both the Windows and Mac versions of Creator. We’ve been fixing bugs in the release candidates and releasing new ones. Currently we are on release 0.13.11 for Mac and 0.13.3 for Windows. More work is still being done on Graphene (can’t share any more news yet).
Graphene SDK (previously known as “Cross platform Creator”). Check out the comments section of a previous SoGS post to see the most recently shared info! Other than that, there’s still more work coming along on Graphene’s website as well as the tool itself. For other previously shared info or to sign up for beta access, refer to this thread: http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/75011/introducing-graphene-sdk/
Release Candidate 0.13.3 for Windows version of GameSalad Creator. Now that we have a release out for the Mac version of Creator with improved performance, we are making this our main focus! We still need to fix up more of the known issues before pushing out a stable build. For the full list of features, known issues, and to report any issues you have using the 0.13.3 RC build head to this thread: http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/85891/windows-creator-rc-0-13-3-is-available.

Release 0.14.0 for the Windows version of GameSalad Creator. We plan on giving the 0.14.0 releases for both the Mac and Windows versions of Creator more priority once we have the stable 0.13.x releases out. This release is planned to be the one that gets Windows version of Creator fully synched up with the Mac version feature wise! This includes all the features we have planned for our 0.14.0 release for Mac as well (see some below)!
Release 0.14.0 for the Mac version of Creator. I’ve been informed that the new nightly build for this will be coming out after we get out a stable 0.13.x release for Windows (we hope to have one out in a couple weeks time). A few features this release will have are AdMob integration, the new rendering engine, and full PlaysTogether support.
