It is the end of holidays, kids are back to school, adults are back to work, and Gideros too!
Gideros 2018.9 brings many fixes and new features, and one feature in particular: Studio addons
Studio addons are a way to integrate extra tools with Gideros Studio: sound editors, map editors, code generators, etc. The best: you can develop them with gideros itself.
They run a a standard gideros/lua environment and can call studio apis (currently limited to project files management but that will evolve in the future). A few examples are included in Gideros, as well a real addon: a sound editor for GSFXR plugin.
Another noticeable feature: Gideros built-in layout system is now out of beta and documented. (http://docs.giderosmobile.com/reference/gideros/Sprite/setLayoutConstraints#Sprite:setLayoutConstraints
). It can be used to layout sprites dynamically and make them respond to size changes automatically.
Googleplay plugin is now deprecated, and all of its functionnality has been merged into gaming plugin.
