  • Added subdivisionsX, subdivisionsY option to GroundMesh (abow)
  • New Tools.CreateScreenshot function will capture all canvas data. Previous implementation is now called CreateScreenshotUsingRenderTarget (deltakosh)

  • Several memory allocation reduction (benaadams)
  • Several GPU state change reduction (benaadams)
  • MapTexture: add supersample mode to double font quality. (nockawa)
  • New SPS feature : solid particle intersection with other solid particle or with any mesh particle.intersectsMesh() (jerome)
  • New invertUV parameter an all ribbon based shapes : ribbon, tube, lathe, basic and custom extrusion (jerome)
  • Text2D: new fontSuperSample setting to use high quality font (nockawa)
  • PerfCounter class added to monitor time/counter and expose min/max/average/lastSecondAverage/current metrics. Updated engine/scene current counter to use this class, exposing new properties as well to access the PerfCounter object (nockawa)
  • Better keyboard event handling which is now done at canvas level and not at window level (deltakosh)
  • New scene.hoverCursor property to define a custom cursor when moving mouse over meshes (deltakosh)
  • WebVR Camera was updated to be conform with the current specs. (RaananW)
  • New "CubeTextureTask" function will allow you to load a CubeTexture in the assetsManager. (agallouin)
  • Scene.stopAnimation has now an optional second parameter, the name of the animation to kill. Usefull if a mesh has multiple animations. (agallouin)
