Unity 2017.1.0b1
« on: April 17, 2017, 04:05:15 PM »
2017.1.0b1 Release Notes (new since a6)

 Known Issues
  • Animation: Reading from Animator.rootPosition and Animator.rootRotation during OnAnimatorMove gives wrong results. Use Animator.deltaPosition and Animator.deltaRotation instead. (899049)
  • Audio: AudioSource attached to VideoPlayer produces choppy sound when playing certain mp4 files with VideoPlayer created from script (895458)
  • Editor: "The system cannot find file specified" error while opening the project for the first time. Deleting Library folder resolves the issue. (895343)
  • Editor: Editor crashes on attempt to open some 5.5 compatible audio projects. (880653)
  • Editor: Text in Editor becomes red after dismissing EditorUtility.DisplayDialog() popups. (886650)
  • Editor: Unity crashes when playing a scene with maximized game view (894572)
  • Graphics: "Assertion failed on expression: 'translated != kInvalidEnum'" error is spammed in the console when selecting an Image file (883459)
  • Graphics: Debug GFX overlay is drawn on top of objects. (851379)
  • iOS: OnGUI fails to draw any elements on iOS (883482)
  • Physics: Crash when reverting prefab which had Rigidbody and Joint deleted, and then undoing the revert. (870498)
  • VR: Rendering problems on Pixel Daydream when using 4x or 8x MSAA with single-pass stereo.  This is due to driver issues, so the problem will be addressed via a driver update, independently of Unity releases. (-)
  • Collab: In-Progress. In-Progress allows developers using Unity Collaborate to see who else on their team has made local changes to a Scene or Prefab before those changes have been published.
  • Graphics: Added LineUtility class and 'LineRenderer.Simply' function. Optimize your lines and curves by using the LineUtility to create a simplified version with a similar shape.
  • Graphics: Added memoryless mode to RenderTexture, accessed through new property RenderTexture.memorylessMode.
  • Playables: Timeline Editor and Runtime API. A tool for sequencing animation, scripts and audio.
  • Animation: Fixed adding State/StateMachines with invalid names. (882122)
  • Editor: Fixed a crash in Editor caused by null Handles. Graphics.DrawMeshNow will now throw an exception if the mesh is null. (893112)
  • Particles: Removing a ParticleSystem on a GameObject that has a component with RequireComponent(Renderer) is now correctly prevented. (888048)
  • Particles: Size over lifetime now correctly affects collider size, and sub-emitter inheritance. (792289)
