Date Votes
  • This is a closed (customers only) Beta, sorry.

  • What is the justification for switching to class object parameters? This is breaking change - we have to change code in many places (overrides mainly) plus new form is much more verbose.

  • We need to change Entity drawing methods signature frequently, a single container allows to add/remove parameters without affecting overriders code.

  • Where can we find list of the breaking changes from version 6?

  • Will it work with WinRT (Windows Store Apps)?
