Graphics 2.0 Public Beta

Today, I’m very happy to announce we are making a beta of Graphics 2.0 available to Corona SDK Pro and Enterprise subscribers!

Our goal with Graphics 2.0 was to enable you to produce cinematic-quality graphics in your mobile apps. We wanted to build a system that let you combine the elements of great visual effects — vector geometry, image processing, motion graphics.

Corona weekly update: Turn-based multiplayer support

Ready to invite your friends to play your latest game? You’re in luck!

Starting in Daily Build #1172, you can develop iOS games that take full advantage of turn-based multiplayer features in Game Center.

Corona Weekly Update: Fixing bugs

While we work on lots of features that make mobile app development easier, I want to highlight all the bug fixing that’s been going on in parallel.

We’ve been very vigilant about regressions introduced in daily builds, but if there was one eye sore in our bugbase it was the bugs in the widget framework. We have attacked them with renewed vigor.

Corona Weekly Update: iOS7 Beta, Text alignment, Facebook
