Godot Engine just got a new release, 3.0.3.  This is primarily a maintenance release, composed mostly of minor improvements and bug fixes.  Hands down the biggest new feature in Godot 3.0.3 is that exporting to all desktop platforms now works for Mono/C# projects.  Please note, this release does not yet include the Android APK fix and you will have to continue using the manual tool until Godot 3.0.4 is released with a full fix.

WARNING!

You must have Mono 5.12 or later installed if you are using the Mono/C# version.  Apparently this is causing crashes on start up for many users.  Additionally if you are on MacOS and use Homebrew for package management, it seems the version of Mono they distribute is out of date, requiring you to manually download the most recent versions.

Other details of the release from the release announcement:
