Noteworthy changes

This release is flawed, v0.12.3 or higher is recommended instead

new collection

Ludum Dare season is over, so there's a new collection of games that awaits you in this release. Since you can buy from the app, some of them are for sale, but not all of them expensive! Try them on for size. If you miss the old collection, it's still right here: http://itch.io/c/32029/ludum-dare-34-staff-picks

compatibility

  • 🏁 Add support for zipped installers (Metamorphabet on Windows)
  • 🐧 Add support for MojoInstaller linux self-extracting archives (SuperHexagon on Linux)
  • 📦 Proper upgrade behavior for 'archive' (Superpowers on Windows) — remove files/dirs that disappeared between old and new release, yet keeps files that weren't part of either (automatically created save files, for example)
  • 🐛 Treat '.asar' files as normal files, not read-only directories (Superpowers on Windows)
  • 👍 Better launch heuristics on Windows & Linux — ignore .so, prefer .sh (general)

misc

  • 🌍 Add support for itchio://launch/GAME_ID for when a game is already installed and you want to launch it programmatically (more on that later)
  • 📦 Add a 'reinstall' option when clicking the trash can icon
  • 🎌 Huge progress on the Arabic translation, which is now almost complete

I've seen some i18n bugs with the language picker, it seems some languages are problematic, will take a look for next patch release.
