The sound has been moved to a separate thread (if the platform supports it), which significantly lowers the risk of stutter when playing sound while loading large scenes.
We’ve also spent some time improving the support for our newest platform, the Nintendo Switch.
In this beta we’re adding multiple workflow fixes, including support for the web profiler and hot reload.
