Weekly Dev Log for October 5th, 2020
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for October 5th, 2020, detailing all the changes that have happened since September 28th, 2020. Note: Devs that don’t appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn’t need to be detailed.
Last week, we released Update 0.12.0.0, containing Co-op condos, which allow a condo owner to authorize their friends to help them build their condo. Co-op condos contain a permissions system, allowing the condo host to specify what actions an individual is allowed to perform. You can read more about Update 0.12.0.0 here.
Last week, we also released Hotfix 0.12.0.1, which fixed some issues with the 0.12.0.0 update, as well as a couple minor changes. You can read more about the hotfix here.
