    Breaking changes are marked bold, important changes are marked italic.


    • New data validation module and classes
    • Huge performance improvements (Log UI)
    • Code quality improvements (more interesting to CORE developers)


    • submodule guide
    • hide_window_on_shutdown variable with ability for quit_safely() to hide your game/apps window on shutdown
    • stringify_variables method in the misc module. allows for placeholders and much more readable code
    • very beautiful welcome message
    • startup time measurement
    • validation module along with CoreValidationSingle and CoreValidationSchema classes to allow for data validation, more to come (probably)!
    • cleanup hooking functionality. tl;dr it allows to run custom code on framework shutdown


    • updated the documentation layout
    • the variable logger in CoreBaseModule has been replaced by loggeri. Simply rename all references to loggeri with logger
    • custom module support is now enabled by default
    • all internal logger calls involving variables have been rewritten to work with the new stringify_variables method (much more convenient and readable!)
    • supplying a CoreConfiguration object to _init/new or reload_configuration will now duplicate the object instead of referencing it. this allows reusing the same config object without issues. please note that you need to call queue_free on the config object manually in your class
    • initialization errors (when incompatible with a certain engine version or the installation path being invalid)
    • rename variables in sms module to make them clearer to understand


    • documentation misconfiguration
    • Log UI lags, lines are now capped
    • logger_detect_verbose_mode being set to false, performance issues have been fixed last release, this is no longer necessary
    • built-in modules being unloaded correctly
    • crashes in reload_configuration (access to invalid instance)
    • logger instance cleanup, that previously removed all registered instances, even if the parent object is still valid, effectively making that automatic cleanup useless
    • logger not removing all instances correctly on cleanup
    • format_stringarray's output missing item_before and item_after when the array only contains one element
    • crashes during preinitialization (on invalid installation path). because of this fix calls to _init/new must now be awaited


    • loggeri variable in CoreBaseModule, see above
