Version 2.0.3 of Godot Engine was just released.  Godot is an open source 2D/3D cross platform game engine I have extensively covered in tutorials available here.  Two of the biggest new features are from the way Godot is built.  Starting with this release OSX 64bit binaries are available.  Meanwhile on Windows, Visual Studio is now being used to compile Godot, replacing MingW, would should result in a pretty solid increase in performance.  If you run into incompatibilities, please be sure to let the team know.  In addition to these changes, OpenSSL was re-enabled in this release, after some prior security concerns.  There are of course several bug fixes and enhancements in this release.

 

The following features and changes were added in this release:
