Cocos Creator 3.7.1 is all about squashing the new bugs we had when releasing the last version. It is a sad fact that after a new major upgrade, your update goes smoothly, and only a few bugs with minor issues come, or it has a lot of problems that developers discover and need fixing. This update is fixing the latter. But the good news is that this has vastly improved the stability and power of 3.7.
We’ve also included improvements on two items with this update:
- Improved our documentation for APIs. You can view a lot more information when going to our API documentation at https://docs.cocos.com/creator/api/en/
- Added mesh optimization parameters to FBX models. Thidramaticallyly improves the look of your models when you add them to your game.
Another big announcement is we are releasing a giant demo project for you to play with. It comes with a lot of the new technology we have been sharing in recent updates, so you can go in and play around with it and use it as a learning tool for your game. You can download it from the Cocos Store.
