Editor 2 now has a new Welcome dialog that allows you to create new projects without having to go through the Defold Dashboard. We've provided a few template projects and samples that you can use as a starting point, and intend to grow this list over time. After you've created a new project, simply choose "Synchronize..." from the File menu to push the project to your Defold Dashboard.
- New Welcome dialog with friendly onboarding workflow.
- You can now create new local projects from templates or samples without having to go through the Defold Dashboard. Local projects can be Synchronized to the Defold servers at a later time.
- We now show progress while downloading or importing projects, and the operation can be canceled.
