Defold 1.2.148 has been released

#1

Defold 1.2.148

Spine

We have fixed a bug related to bundling Spine scenes with more than 4 bones per vertex, as well as updated the visualisation of Spine models in the editor

Rebundle

In the editor, you can now press CMD+U (CTRL+U) to call Bundle with the last used settings.
This can be a real time saver.

Native Extensions

In anticipation of moving more code out into extensions, we’ve now added our Json parser dmJson into the DefoldSDK.
And you can now also use our synchronization tools dmMutex and dmConditionVariable.

The extender server now picks up the shared/dynamic libraries you have in your extension and links towards them.

And we added a compile flag to HTML5 builds so that they will fail if they get unresolved symbols.

Coming releases

Dropping Bob support on 32-bit Windows

A few weeks back the editor dropped support for the last remaining 32-bit desktop platform (Windows) and now it’s time for our commandline build tool Bob to follow suit. Starting from our next stable release of 1.2.149 we will no longer ship Bob for Windows 32-bit. You will still be able to bundle for 32-bit Windows, but it can’t be used as a development platform.

It’s nice to see a bit of attention to the Editor as well! Thanks for this.

Apart from the big features mentioned in the roadmap, any other workflow related thing you plan to address?

I am getting Build Errors with 1.2.148

2019-03-05%2019_05_40-Window

Tried deleting .internal, build and %Appdata%/Roaming/Defold
Tried fetching, restarting and reinstalling. Only thing that got rid of it was to rollback to 1.2.147

As mentioned in the errors, there are three missing Profiler symbols.
So there’s something wrong with the defoldsdk.

Are you using an app manifest?
Do you have a small repro case?

Hi, there has been a slight change regarding the “profilerext” library.

If you remove the profiling (profilerext library) in your appmanifest by adding it to the excludeLibs list you now need to add a corresponding “profilerext_null” to the libs section.

This is a change in the latest release, previously you did not need to add a null-version but it now works much like “sound_null”, “hid_null” and “record_null”.

@britzl has updated the manifestation tool just a minute ago https://britzl.github.io/manifestation/ so it does this properly.

Sorry for missing to point this out properly with the release.

Facebook Instant error (SOLVED-ish)
Editor Update

I am not home to verfiy but this 100% sounds like the case. I do think I am stripping it (using appmanifest with Britzl tool).

Edit:
@vilse @Mathias_Westerdahl I updated the app manifest (excluding everything except input) - I do still get the DefOS and LFS errors. But I get less Unknown sources errors now.

Could you post you appmanifest that you are using so I can have a look tomorrow?

It should be profilerext_null instead of profiler_null

I applied the generator fix, and that works so I can test the game. When I come to bundle the HTML5 game, though, I get treated to this eye candy:

/fbinstant/src/fbinstant.cpp
	Line 7: 'DLIB_LOG_DOMAIN' macro redefined [-Wmacro-redefined]
#define DLIB_LOG_DOMAIN LIB_NAME
        ^
	Line 7: previous definition is here
#define DLIB_LOG_DOMAIN "FBINSTANT"
        ^

And “Unknown source”:

I see, hm, let’s ping @jhonny.goransson to help us take a look at this tomorrow maybe.

But just to try something, could you remove anything facebook related under the js-web and wasm-web platforms in you manifest?

(Not a solution, but just to narrow down the issue!)

Removing all Facebook references works, it now compiles and I can push a build. Filesize has gone up, I suppose that’s expected.
