A new release candidate for Godot 4.0.4 has been released. The Godot Engine is a free, cross-platform game engine that allows you to easily create 2D and 3D games.



Release candidate: Godot 4.0.4 RC 1

We are committed to providing support for multiple minor versions of Godot at the same time, as long as we have the capacity to do the work and there are fixes that can be safely backported. So even if your project cannot be migrated to  Godot 4.1 right now, we still want to share with you some positive changes.

It has been a few weeks since the release of Godot 4.0.3, which means it’s high time for the next maintenance version! As is always the case with patch releases, 4.0.4 is focused on stability and bug fixes, as well as adding missing documentation. One important change in this release is a security fix for a potential denial of service when using ENet:

  • If your project uses ENetMultiplayerPeer or low level ENetConnection, then we strongly recommend updating to this version once it is released as stable. Be sure to test the build right now to prepare and have a smooth transition. Thanks to  Facundo Fernández for reporting this vulnerability. A patch has been submitted to the upstream ENet repository as well.

This is a Release Candidate, which means that we don’t expect regressions or new major issues. Please give it a good test if you are currently using Godot 4.0 in your project. Unless a critical problem is discovered, a stable release will follow RC 1 shortly. Remember to always make backups when changing engine version, or better yet, prefer using a version control system, such as Git, to have a safety net in cases of data corruption or loss.
