The Godot game engine reached its first beta release for the 4.3 release cycle, signaling the beginning of feature freeze. Contributors are encouraged to prioritize addressing regressions and outstanding problems. The release is scheduled for roughly a month, with the timetable dependant on bug patches and detected issues. Users are encouraged to test and report bugs during a brief beta period.

We have reached the first beta release for the 4.3 release cycle. This officially marks the start of feature freeze for 4.3. This means contributors are encouraged to focus their efforts on fixing  regressions and other outstanding bugs. We won’t risk merging any new features or risky bug fixes until after we release 4.3 and begin preparing for 4.4.

We will aim to release 4.3 in around a month, but as usual, this timeline will depend on how quickly we are able to fix the outstanding bugs and what new bugs are identified in the beta process. We ask that users test these beta releases and report bugs as soon as you spot them to help us ensure a quick beta period and a timely release of 4.3.

Please, consider  supporting the project financially, if you are able. Godot is maintained by the efforts of volunteers and a small team of paid contributors. Your donations go towards sponsoring their work and ensuring they can dedicate their undivided attention to the needs of the project.
