Unity 3.5 update released, 'biggest' to date

Unity 3.5 update released, 'biggest' to date

February 14, 2012 | By Mike Rose




Unity Technologies today released the latest update for its Unity multi-platform engine and development tools, calling it "one of the biggest additions to Unity since its inception."

Unity is one of the most popular development platforms for creating 3D and 2D content, and boasts over 800,000 registered developers.

This latest update, named Unity 3.5, is a free download for all Unity developers using version 3.0 or higher of the platform. It includes a new highly optimized Shuriken particle system that gives developers complete control over visual effects.

There are also improvements to AI pathfinding, a new multi-threaded renderer for lighting and HDR rendering, performance improvements and upgraded collaboration tools, including the Asset Server License which has now been renamed the Team License.

Finally, the update comes with a preview release of the Flash deployment add-on, which has been used by more than 50,000 developers to date.

David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies, explained, "This is one of the most spectacular additions we've ever made to Unity."

"Recognizing that Unity was being pushed harder and harder, we launched our initiative to upgrade Unity with high-end capabilities that larger studios are accustomed to and smaller studios usually don’t have access to. We want to make Unity the best choice for everyone and Unity 3.5 is a massive demonstration of our commitment to that goal."
