Exciting! Congratulations!

Awesome! Thanks @theo @dimitre and every one that made it possible. :slight_smile:
BTW, having the examples running in the browser is so nice !


Yesss 0.12.0 is the best OF yet in my opinion! exciting times.
Better font metrics, (some studios gave up using OF because of this)
Better video player in macOS (same)
Ready to publish on App Store
Leaner graphics for iOS templates
Modern XCode template easy to update
Per app settings in macOS, so it is great to keep app version, icon and other durable settings.

And releases will be more frequent thanks to the great streamlined work on automation :zap:


Congratulation and thank you to everyone involved, big and small. I love this community and toolchain.
