What was improved exactly? :slight_smile:

This should help Lime work with x86-64 on Android (to my knowledge) assuming the HXCPP NDK toolchain is all set up properly. I forget if HXCPP fully supports the architecture for Android yet?

Looks like yes, I should try. :slight_smile:

I currently use gradle 2.1.0. How can i download and update the new version of gradle build (5.6.3)?. Thks!

Be careful using Starling on HTML5 with this release - failIfMajorPerformanceCaveat can automatically cause openfl to use its CanvasRenderer, which as far as I can tell doesn’t work with starling at all since Stage3D doesn’t support that renderer type (we ended up changing the setting to false in HTML5Window.createContext() to get around it for now).
