We’re continuing to make progress on our goals for the next major OpenFL release, but in the meantime I was thinking about making a minor OpenFL release with patches and fixes to stabilize the 8.9.x series.
From my perspective, 8.9.1 was a stable release and 8.9.2 included in-progress feature upgrades that we are polishing up for 9.0.0 features, but in 8.9.2 it caused some regressions we had not caught before release that are more stable in 8.9.5 but there might still be a minor issue or two that is not resolved in that release but is stabilized in the development branch instead on Github.
With the above in view, I was considering a 8.9.6 release that (probably?) would revert to 8.9.1 then cherry-pick all the relevant fixes that don’t relate to renderer rewrites and bigger changes introduced.
Could anyone help me understand what essential fixes we made since 8.9.1 (I think some were related to supporting Android Google Play Store changes, for example) and whether these warrant an 8.9.6 from that point, or if we should build on the progress from 8.9.5 with some minor fixes, or if this seems unnecessary entirely?
