Babylon.js v5.0 released (early)
So it looks like babylon.js v5 has been secretly released early, before the May 5th announcement.
1) Babylon.js 5.0 is here early! 2) Keep it a secret until May 5th 3) Use it and create a demo/playground 4) Share a social media post with your Babylon.js 5.0 demo/playground on May 5th at 1pm PDT 5) Use the hashtag #BabylonJS5 and tag @babylonjs 6) Remember! Keep it a secret!!!
The new theme for the release is "Space" and developers are being encouraged to create a demo/playground around that. WHICH fits nicely with VRSpace.org!!
Josip is already working on migrating to the new engine, and squashing bugs.
What kind of demo/playground should you make? That’s 100% up to you! Our theme for the release is “Space.” Babylon 5? Get it? :slight_smile: If you’d like to create something Sci-Fi or Space themed, that would fit right in, but certainly isn’t required.
