    • 🛠 Fixed incorrect shadows on the master mesh when using a lod mesh (Popov72)
    • Take first gamepad connected when attaching camera (and not only XBOX gamepads) (#9136) (RaananW)
    • 🛠 Fixed bug in Mesh.IncreaseVertices assuming null value if a property didn't exist. (aWeirdo)
    • 🛠 Fixed issue when taking a screenshot with multi-cameras using method CreateScreenshotUsingRenderTarget (#9201) (gabrielheming)
    • 🛠 Fixed inTangent in animationGroup (dad72)
    • 🛠 Fixed bug in QuadraticErrorSimplification not correctly optimizing mesh. (aWeirdo)
    • 🛠 Fixed bug in ArcRotateCamera where setting the position would recalculate the alpha value to a value outside the current limits. (nilss0n)

    💥 Breaking changes

    • was renamed to FollowCamera.meshTarget to not be in conflict with (Deltakosh)
    • EffectRenderer.render now takes a RenderTargetTexture or an InternalTexture as the output texture and only a single EffectWrapper for its first argument (Popov72)
    • ⚡️ Sound's updateOptions takes options.length and options.offset as seconds and not milliseconds (RaananW)
    • 0️⃣ HDRCubeTexture default rotation is now similar to the industry one. You might need to Added a rotation on y of 90 degrees if you scene changes (Sebavan)
    • PBRMaterial index of refraction is now defined as index of refraction and not the inverse of it (Sebavan)
    • SceneLoaderProgress class is now ISceneLoaderProgress interface (bghgary)
    • Rendering of transparent meshes: stencil state is now set to the value registered in the engine (when calling engine.setStencilBuffer(value)) instead of being set to false unconditionally. This change may affect the highlight layer when using transparent meshes. If you are impacted, you may need to exclude the transparent mesh(es) from the layer (Popov72)
    • 🛠 Fixed width/height GUI container computation to take into account paddings when adaptWithToChildren = true (Popov72)
    • 🚚 smoothstep in NME is now taking any type of parameters for its value input. If you use generated code from the NME ("Generate code" button), you may have to move the smoothstep output connection AFTER the input connections (Popov72)
    • 🚚 SoundTrack.RemoveSound and SoundTrack.AddSound were renamed to SoundTrack.removeSound and SoundTrack.addSound (Deltakosh)
    • PolygonPoints.add no longer filters out points that are close to the first point (bghgary)
    • Material created with matching names now have auto-incrementing IDs (Drigax)
