State of GameSalad on 4-24-2015
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, I’ve also decided that I like the short version and will keep adding those as well. Enjoy!
We pushed out a release candidate build for the Mac version of Creator (0.13.9) that has much better performance! We also plan on inviting some users to test out the new marketplace next week so it’ll be here before you know it. More work is still being done on Graphene (can’t share any more news yet). Our primary focus will be getting out a stable build for Windows version of Creator (0.13.x note: we hope to have one out in a few weeks) and then will shift over to getting out 0.14.0 for Mac Creator.
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 been 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 0.13.2 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 the known issues before pushing out a stable build.

Release candidate 0.13.9 for Mac version of GameSalad Creator! We recently pushed out a release candidate of a build that has Creator moved over to using ARC. This has greatly improved Creators performance, so go download it here: http://gamesalad.com/download/releases!

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 will be coming out after we get out a stable 0.13.x release for Windows (we hope to have one out in a few weeks time). A few features this release will have are AdMob integration, the new rendering engine, and full PlaysTogether support. Check out this thread for more info on release 0.14.0: http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/74854/nightly-build-0-14-0/p1.
New marketplace. We plan on contacting some users for testing it out next week so the new marketplace is on the horizon!
That’s all I have for you guys. More info will be coming your way next week.
