Title pretty much says it all, Unity 4 is now available.  Not a huge shock given the beta release announced two weeks ago.

 

The key new features are:

  • Direct X 11 rendering
  • New target platform: Flash
  • New target platform: Linux
  • Updated image effects including
    • New water shaders and prefabs
    • Render to texture effects
    • Full screen effects such as Depth of Field, Color correction, lens effects, etc. (Pro only)
  • Shuriken particle system
  • Lightmap Baking
  • Mobile profiler (Pro only)
  • Cross platform font rendering
  • Hardware cursor api
  • New project browser with fast integrated search

 

Unity Pro is priced at 1500$.

Unity “Base” is still free.

iOs, Android and Flash are each 400$.  Linux appears to be included in the base package.

No details given on upgrade pricing.

My personal 2cents, it doesn’t really look like a full version upgrade to me.  The new targets were announced in 3.x, at first glance I’m not really seeing any reason to upgrade.  What do you think?
