New Features:

  • "recover project" feature, (cloud backups), thanks, Bernat Romagosa!
  • vector paint editor, thanks, Carles Paredes and Bernat Romagosa!

  • added drop-down menu to "letter _ of _ ", adjusted all translations (thanks, Joan!)

Notable Changes:

  • hidden sprites can no longer be collision detected (but can test for other sprites)

  • new "center" option for location blocks (GO TO, POINT TOWARDS, DISTANCE TO and DIRECTION TO)
  • disabled keyboard shortcuts for green-flag (cmd-enter) and stop (esc) in presentation mode

Notable Fixes:
