Godot is a popular open source 2D/3D game engine.  If you are interested in learning more I did a closer look review as well as a complete tutorial series.  They just released Godot 2.0.4 in advance of the soon to be released 2.1.

 

From the 2.0.4 release notes:

Enhancements:

  • Many new classes documented! Thanks to all those that got involved after our call for contributors! Feel free to join us as there's still a lot to do, but the progress is heart-warming!
  • Updated libraries: GLEW 1.13.0, libogg 1.3.2, libvorbis 1.3.5, libtheora 1.1.1, libpng 1.5.27
  • Ability to rotate controls using tool
  • Added classes' short descriptions as tooltips in the create dialog
  • Added 'fat' option for bits param on scons for osx, produces a binary containing both 32 bits and 64 bits binaries
  • Added InputMap.get_actions()
  • Change low processor usage mode to cap to 60 FPS rather than 40 FPS
  • Change the default comment color to #676767
  • Debugger: show error message if description is not available
  • Dynamic property list for control margins allowing floating point properties to be used with ratio anchors
  • iOS: added "arch" parameter, made iphone use it to build isim
  • OSX: Key modifiers (Ctrl, Alt, Meta and Shift) may be used as Input keys now
  • OSX export: Default to fat format, make it an enum
  • Prettier str() for arrays
  • Rename CanvasItem.edit_get() to edit_get_state()
  • The create dialog starts collapsed now. The original behavior can be reactivated in the editor settings
  • Various enhancements to the script editor, such as member variables highlighting, breakpoint markers, caret blinking, etc.

Bug fixes:

  • Avoid crash if setting modifiers fails
  • Avoid mirroring to go negative to fix crash

  • Fix a inherited transform bug with Camera2D preview drawing
  • Fix bug in String==StrRange comparison
  • Fix CanvasItem.get_global_transform() andCanvasItem.get_local_transform()
  • Fix crashes in code completion and SamplePlayer
  • Fix error storing path for children of instanced nodes in .tscn
  • Fix errors while exporting to Android
  • Fix File.get_as_text() to return the whole file
  • Fix OpenSSL connections on 64-bit Windows
  • Fix own world option of Viewport
  • Fix parsing of floats in scientific notation
  • Fix several bugs related to node duplication and signals
  • Fix Theora video playback without a Vorbis stream
  • Fix unsaved modifications in scripts being overwritten on filesystem changes
  • Fix visual server error when minimizing the window
  • Fixed ancient bug that prevented proper theme editing
  • Fixed bug using DirAccess in Android Marshmallow due to data dir being a symlink
  • Fixed various bugs with inner classes
  • LineEdit: Fix and improve selection behaviour
  • Make Input Actions config not affect the editor
  • Properly deliver localized coordinates when passing gui events through parents
  • Resolve numerical error when comparing instancing an inheritance to avoid wrongly saving unchanged properties
  • Windows: prevent freeze while moving or resizing the game window.
  • And many other nice changes that we can't possibly list here without boring you to the end of times!
