A new release, 1.2.90 of the Defold game engine is now available.  The Defold game engine is a 2D cross platform Lua powered game engine.  I have done a complete Defold tutorial series should you wish to learn more.


Details of this release:

This sprint we have mostly focused on stability and robustness in the engine.

The bundling for Android on macOS Sierra should work as expected now.
We've also added some missing autocomplete functions for Facebook, webview and window.
The debug profile view now shows the amount of memory currently used by Lua.
The Lua require function has gotten some rework, making it easier to import your scripts.
We've also fixed a small drag'n'drop issue in the gui outline.
