Defold 1.2.174 BETA

The latest beta is now released, and we invite those interested in beta testing the new features in the editor and engine to join now.
The beta period will be 2 weeks and the next planned stable release is two weeks from now.

We hope this new workflow will highlight any issues earlier, and also get valuable feedback from our users. And please comment if you come up with ideas on improving on this new workflow.

Please report any engine issues in this thread or in issues using Help -> Report Issue

Thx for helping out!

Disclaimer

This is a BETA release, and it might have issues that could potentially be disruptive for you and your teams workflow. Use with caution. Use of source control for your projects is strongly recommended.

Access to the beta

Download the editor or bob.jar from http://d.defold.com/beta/

Set your build server to https://build-stage.defold.com

Release notes

This interim release was planned in order to support iOS 14 as soon as it came out.
We’ve also taken the opportunity to fix some issues regarding the AAB bundling for Android.

Since it’s a brand new major OS version, we’d like some help from the community to test that it works as intended. E.g. building properly and running on the devices (old and new).

We’d also like you to test and verify that the AAB issues have been fixed and are working again on all platforms (osx, win32, linux)

Thank you!

I’m getting Internal Server Error when I try to build any project that uses DefOS on 1.2.174:

EDIT: I changed the build server to https://build.defold.com/ then back to https://build-stage.defold.com/ and the issue seems to have gone way.

We’ve have pushed some fixes to the 1.2.174 beta and the build-stage.defold.com to solve the resource issues when bundling for Android. A new beta (SHA1: 5d8d6d6ed04e9d6ed8c577e558f6ad767e2e3735) should be available in 20 minutes or so. The build server has already been updated.

We’ve tested with a few different projects with and without extensions and so far everything seems to finally be back on track and working, BUT we would also appreciate if you could test with your own projects and report back to us if something isn’t working in the bundling process.

Not sure if it’s related issue (I think there were two separate issues in previous ticket)

I’m using the Defold App Manifest Generator to optimize my game for stuff I don’t need like Physics2D, Physics3D, Records, and Profiler. Defold App Manifest Generator

I’m not sure if this is the latest release of the beta that is causing the following error.

Line 1: Cannot create property=platforms for JavaBean=com.defold.extender.Configuration@31cee5b
  in 'string', line 1, column 1:
    context:
    ^

                     ^

Not sure that is going on here.

@vnieu which version of Defold (share Help->About) are you using? Can you also confirm that you are using build-stage.defold.com in editor preferences?

I’m using version 1.2.174 beta channel.
I’ve just set the build server to https://build-stage.defold.com and now it just says ‘Ready’ at the bottom left corner when I try to build.

No error or any progress indication? Try cleaning out your build and .internal folder in your project and try again.

It builds but only when the native extension in the game.project is empty but when I attach the .appmanifest is does not build.

Can you share (bjorn@defold.se) a complete and minimal example project where bundling doesn’t work?
