Release Notes - 0.8.0

REFINED VISUALS

We've given the editor a little visual love to make it clearer and easier to work with. We removed the group headers on nodes and made the text easier to read. We hope you like it!

IMPROVED LAYOUT NODES

We have changed the way layouts are done slightly. Instead of the layout being a property of theGroup node we now have specific nodes for Stack Layout and Flow Layout. These nodes also have a few new properties like item spacing and padding that make them easier to work with. Your projects should be automatically updated to use the new nodes and you might get a notification as shown below.

PROJECT IMPORT

We have completely revised the project export / import system. Now you can simply import an existing project into your current project by clicking import and selecting the project folder you want to import. First you will get to choose which components you want to import, and dependencies both in other components and resources are automatically detected.
