GDevelop 3.5.74

GDevelop 3.5.74 is available!

Releases notes are available on GitHub:
Lots of Linux related bugfixes, the new TileMap object is included, and the software was changed as you can notice to GDevelop. Read more on this topic: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5694

You can download it from the website or github (these are the same files). I’ll activate the automatic update checking in a few hours, do not have the time right now so do not be surprised if the old version says that it is up to date. :slight_smile:


You should provide binary zip for Linux users. Not everyone has debian-derived distro and has time to compile GD from sources.

When I try to install the Ubuntu version, I get this error message:

Package Operation failed.

Thanks it solved the problem :slight_smile:

Indeed I forgot to explain that any already installed version of Game Develop on Ubuntu must be uninstalled before installing the new one (because of the package name change). :slight_smile:

@Darkhog: Binary files on Linux are strongly attached to system libraries. I only distribute a deb file that is working on the latest version of Ubuntu. Sadly, I cannot guarantee anything else because any incompatilibity in a system library make the whole things collapse and nothing works… In pratice, the package works in recent Ubuntu based distro, but I do not provide a zip (or better, a .tar.gz) file because it is not guaranteed to work at all.
