    You can now import spritesheets from TexturePacker a great spritesheet layout tool. You have to export the spritesheet using the JSON data format. Import that JSON data file into GBS and it will automatically load the spritesheet. You can then double click on the asset to open the asset editor to define animations.

    Improved Scene Object Selection

    Selection and interaction with scene objects is alot more intuitive now. You can multi-select, scale, rotate, and hit the "DELETE" key with objects selected and it will delete the object.

    Improved Layer Panel
