What’s new in Godot Engine 3.1.1:

  • A security issue was reported and fixed. This change does add some API to Godot in case you need to be able to deserialize Object data. Please see This PR for details. If you do not use networking in your project you should not be affected. However GDNative ABI was changed so any native plugins need to be rebuilt for 3.1.1.
  • GLES 3 support for depth textures was fixed. This was a regression in 3.1 from 3.0.x.
  • GLES 2 crash on older iOS devices was resolved.
  • OS.get_unique_id() was fixed on Android.
