    It actually has since Monday ;) but will only work if updating from 3.0 and not a beta 3.0.1 build.

    If having any trouble with the internal update process please use one of the links above to download. Make sure to remove any previous versions of BB3 before installing this one.

    Am I missing something or are the error logs no longer showing line numbers and function names? Any coders notice this. Anybody found a workaround. This makes debugging extra challenging.

    Wow! That's a lot of updates and fixes!

    Does this mean I have to remove Beta releases installed?
    I'm assuming the update function will only update BB3 to a newer official-release-version and not Beta versions. If so, can I still install future beta releases while having official 3.0.1-3163?

    Looking at next week on this ideally, as soon as I have a build with it I'll send/post. It's definitely a large priority.

    Yes, on OSX update function will only work from the Application in the Applications folder. Windows you will want to remove previous versions and install fresh. You can install future beta versions by keeping the beta versions in a non-applications folder (Downloads) or on Windows by install to a different filepath than /buildbox

    Glad to hear! I will also say if you're talking about lag on Android devices right now removing shadows helps a ton there now. We are working on better ways to fix/manage them currently as well.

    @Sean Buildbox -> something very important is missing in this BB 3.0.1 official version and any other beta before that.

    When exported for Android, on AdIntegrator.java, there's no buttonActivated and buttonVisible
    functions at the bottom?? This version 3.0.1 is not GDPR compliant, especially to create Revoke Consent buttons on Android.

    We need that update. I thought we already had that in BB 3.0.0? We found this issue thanks to @eggchell

    Yes, I see crashes when adding a texture and then trying to edit. Support says it could be corrupted texture files, but I'm using the same textures as in previous builds. Seems to help if I add the texture, save the file, close BB3, and then reopen BB3. Sometimes this works. Sometimes not.

    Yes I noticed that too, it's much harder now to figure out what's going on and find the bugs without the line numbers and function names, I do hope we are just missing something and that's not how the log is just going to be from now on.

    It looks good so far but still far from the final, most functionalities don't know how to use it, isn't the time to add more demo games to showcase the old and the new functionalities. adding levels, adding ads, adding monetization without any tricks or so....
