This release includes a fix for Rojo users using Rojo with versions of Roblox that have unreleased kinds of instance, notably our internal engineers.

Upgrading

If you're on Windows, download rojo-0.5.3-win64.zip, and extract it somewhere. In previous releases, this file was just rojo.exe, but is now compressed to make the download smaller.

You can also use Rust (1.34+) to install Rojo from the command line:

cargo install rojo --force

To install the plugin, either install it from Roblox (https://www.roblox.com/catalog/1997686364) or download Rojo.rbxm from this release and put it into your Roblox Studio plugins folder.

Changes Since 0.5.2

  • Fixed an issue where Rojo would throw an error when encountering recently-added instance classes.

This release includes a bugfix aimed at Rojo users that rely on .csv files turning into LocalizationTable instances. Before this release, Rojo's output in projects using these files was not deterministic.

This resulted in minor issues for engineers at Roblox working on Roblox Studio!

This stable release has been in progress for a very long time.

If you're coming from the previous 0.5.0 alpha releases, not a whole lot has changed in this release except its name.

If you're coming from Rojo 0.4.x, check out the 0.5.x Migration Guide in the official docs to get yourself up to date. At this point, Rojo 0.4.x will no longer officially receive any further updates.

Upgrading

To install the Rojo CLI, either download rojo.exe attached here or run (requires Rust 1.34):

cargo install rojo --force

To install the plugin, either install it from Roblox (https://www.roblox.com/catalog/1997686364) or download Rojo.rbxm and put it into your Roblox Studio plugins folder.

The Rojo Visual Studio Code extension should automatically upgrade you from the 0.5.0 alphas onto the 0.5.0 stable release track.

Changes Since 0.4.x

  • Brand new project format, default.project.json instead of rojo.json
  • Added support for rbxm and rbxmx models as part of your project
  • Added new commands: rojo build, rojo upload, rojo init
  • Added support for csv localization tables
  • New plugin that's more efficient and more beautiful!

Changes Since 0.5.0 Alpha 13

  • Changed .model.json naming, which may require projects to migrate ambiguous cases:
    • The file name now takes precedence over the Name field in the model, like Rojo 0.4.x.
    • The Name field of the top-level instance is now optional. It's recommended that you remove it from your models.
    • Rojo will emit a warning when Name is specified and does not match the name from the file.
  • Fixed Rect values being set to 0, 0, 0, 0 when synced with the Rojo plugin. (#201)
  • Fixed live-syncing of PhysicalProperties, NumberSequence, and ColorSequence values

Known Issues

  • #142: Rojo still does not support ref properties, this will be fixed as part of a refactor and release 0.6.0
  • #215, #214, #213, #193, #132: Various issues around changes being dropped that we weren't quite able to pinpoint. After #217 merges, we'll be working on fresh foundations, which means fresh bugs!

This is a fairly minor release that fixes up behaviors around BrickColor values. This means that SpawnLocation instances can now be correctly represented!

This is a large release with some new features, bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and new branding.

Along with this release, we've launched the new rojo-rbx GitHub organization! It's the home for all official Rojo projects, now including the VS Code Extension and rbxlx-to-rojo, an experimental project for converting existing games to Rojo.

Rojo now also has its own website with fancy branding: https://rojo.space

Upgrading

This release requires Rust 1.32 or newer!

To install the Rojo CLI, either download rojo.exe attached here or run:

cargo install rojo --version 0.5.0-alpha.12 --force

To install the plugin, either install it from Roblox (https://www.roblox.com/catalog/1997686364) or download Rojo.rbxm and put it into your Roblox Studio plugins folder.

Changes Since 0.5.0 Alpha 11

  • Added .meta.json files
    • init.meta.json files replace init.model.json files from Rojo 0.4.x (#183)
    • Other .meta.json files allow attaching extra data to other files (#189)
  • Added support for live-syncing CollectionService tags.
  • Added support for infinite and NaN values in types like Vector2 when building models and places.
    • These types aren't supported for live-syncing yet due to limitations around JSON encoding.
  • Added support for using SharedString values when building XML models and places.
  • Added a warning when building binary place files, since they're still experimental and have bugs.
  • Added a warning when trying to use Rojo 0.5.x with a Rojo 0.4.x-only project.
  • Added a warning when a Rojo project contains keys that start with $, which are reserved names. (#191)
  • Rojo now throws an error if unknown keys are found in most files.
  • Added an icon to the plugin's toolbar button
  • Changed the plugin to use a docking widget for all UI.
  • Changed the plugin to ignore unknown properties when live-syncing.
    • Rojo's approach to this problem might change later, like with a strict model mode (#190) or another approach.
  • Upgraded to reflection database from client release 388.
  • Updated Rojo's branding to shift the color palette to make it work better on dark backgrounds.

Meta Files

Meta files replace the functionality of init.model.json files in Rojo 0.4.x and do a lot more!

You can make tools with an init.meta.json:

{
    "className": "Tool"
}

You can create scripts with Disabled set by creating a meta file with the same base name, like foo.meta.json for foo.server.lua:

{
    "properties": {
        "Disabled": true
    }
}

Check out the new Meta Files section of the Sync Details page of the docs for more information on how you can take advantage of them.

Dock Widget Plugin UI!

A fairly long-requested feature, Rojo now sits in a dockable widget that is toggled by the toolbar button.

An update in the near future will add proper support for dark theme. Stay tuned!

CollectionService live-syncing

CollectionService tags can now be live-synced! This is part of improved support for lots of property types. If you had trouble live-syncing something before, it might work now in alpha 12!

New branding

There's a new branding repository, https://github.com/rojo-rbx/brand which contains all of the new assets we'll be using going forward.

This is the 8th alpha for Rojo 0.5.0! We've skipped alpha 7 in order to stop having confusing version numbers.

This release brings along 100% practical coverage for the XML model format with the exception of refs (think Model.PrimaryPart or ObjectValue.Value). This should enable more projects to start being built using only Rojo and never checking a place file into Git.

cargo install rojo --version 0.5.0-alpha.8 --force

This is the 7th (zero-based indexing) alpha for Rojo 0.5.0!

This release is almost entirely bugfixes. It includes some internal refactoring to the plugin that should not impact users, but if they do, it is safe to revert the plugin to alpha 5 and keep the server at alpha 6.

  • Fixed rojo init giving unexpected results by upgrading to rbx_dom_weak 1.1.0
  • Fixed live server not responding when the Rojo plugin is connected (#133)
  • Updated default place file:
    • Improved default properties to be closer to Studio's built-in 'Baseplate' template
    • Added a baseplate to the project file (Thanks, @AmaranthineCodices!)
  • Added more type support to Rojo plugin
  • Fixed some cases where the Rojo plugin would leave around objects that it knows should be deleted
  • Updated plugin to correctly listen to Plugin.Unloading when installing or uninstalling new plugins
