What's new in version 4.3.2?


Recommended Posts

I am doing big pixi.js project and for development purposes I installed in project pixi.js via link on latest development build:

 <script src="http://pixijs.download/release/pixi.js"></script>

When I returned to project after CHRISTMAS VACATION I've found that it doesn't work. Asset manager starts to load assets and do it infinitely without any error, app just never gets initialized. I fixed it changing link to v4.3.0, but i am really interested what's changed in new version, I did search on official site, on github (https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/compare/v4.3.1...v4.3.2 ), so far I see there is changes between version 4.3.0 and 4.3.1 (https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/compare/v4.3.0...v4.3.1) but no really differences between 4.3.1 and 4.3.2. Also I've found that api PIXI.Text has changes,  new PIXI.Text(text, style, canvas) so now you can initialise it with canvas, why? Does it have any advantages in text rendering?  


Thanks in advance for clearifying my answers.

https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/releases/ is the page that breaks down version changes in plain English :) Top one is changes for the next version that hasn't been released yet, then under that the actual released version changes. 

In the case of that Text change, the optional third parameter let's you share around a canvas between text objects rather then them all use their own. If you've lots of instances of the same piece of text in the same style in different places, then you could save a little memory via sharing the canvas.
