Release 0.14.0 for the Windows version of GameSalad Creator. Work is still being done here. This release is planned to be the one that gets Windows version of Creator 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)!
Nightly build for the Windows version of Creator. We are still working towards fixing the known issues in the Windows nightly build. One such thing being worked on is adding stubs for Chartboost/Revmob when previewing. For more info and to let us know of any issues you’re having with the Windows nightly build, check out the following thread: http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/75007/windows-creator-nightly-0-12-1-is-available/p1 and get the build here: http://gamesalad.com/download/releases.
Release 0.14.0 for the Mac version of Creator. Work is being done on this front to bring a lot of long desired features! It will have AdMob integration, the new rendering engine, and full PlaysTogether support to name a few! One such thing still being worked on is converting Creator over to use ARC to reduce some of the performance issues you guys have been having (see BlackCloakGS’s statment here: http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/comment/523753/#Comment_523753).

New marketplace. Work is still being done on this front and been informed that we're working on a final punch list of fixes necessary for the Marketplace 2.0 beta test to launch! I’ve also heard that we'll be reaching out to folks to extend testing invitations soon.
