  • Linux game development on Ubuntu: Godot and Unity | Ubuntu

    A new year, a new instalment of our gaming on Ubuntu blog series! This month we’re covering Linux game development tools on Ubuntu Desktop, something that may be particularly useful for anyone taking part in the upcoming Global Game Jam.

  • Godot Engine - Major milestone ready for testing: Godot 4.0 alpha 1 is out!

    The new year is often the time for new beginnings, and 2022 is on schedule to mark a new chapter in Godot's history. Slowly but surely we are getting to the release of the new major version of the engine — Godot 4.0. But to get there, we first need to test the new version rigorously, and like many times before we are looking to our amazing community to help with the efforts.

    This marks the start of the alpha development phase, and we invite everyone to start experimenting with upcoming preview versions of the engine. Be aware that during the alpha stage the engine is still not feature-complete or stable. There will likely be breaking changes between this release and the first beta release. Only the beta will mark the so-called "feature freeze".

    As such, we do not recommend porting existing projects to this and other upcoming alpha releases unless you are prepared to do it again to fix future incompatibilities. However, if you can port some existing projects and demos to the new version, that may provide a lot of useful information about critical issues still left to fix. There will be frequent alpha releases and the engine will gradually become more stable along the way, as our contributors fix the issues reported by alpha testers.
