Bevy 0.7 Released

Following up on the Bevy 0.6 release back in January, Bevy 0.7 was just released. Bevy is a data oriented ECS driven game 2D/3D game engine using the Rust programming language. The 0.7 release adds several new features including skinned animation support, GLTF animation importing and more.

Features of Bevy 0.7:

  • Skeletal animation and mesh skinning
  • GLTF animation importing
  • Unlimited* point lights in a scene
  • Improved clustered forward rendering: dynamic/adaptive clustering and faster, more accurate cluster assignment
  • Compressed texture support (KTX2 / DDS / .basis): load more textures in a scene, faster
  • Compute shader / pipeline specialization: Bevy’s flexible shader system was ported to compute shaders, enabling hot reloading, shader defs, and shader imports
  • Render to texture: cameras can now be configured to render to a texture instead of a window
  • Flexible mesh vertex layouts in shaders
  • ECS improvements: Order systems using their names, Query::many_mut, use conflicting parameters in systems via ParamSets, WorldQuery derives
  • Documentation improvements: better examples, more doc tests and more coverage
  • More audio control: pause, volume, speed, and looping
  • Power usage options to enable only updating Bevy Apps when input occurs
