Defold 1.2.83 Released


Today there was a new release of the Defold Lua powered cross platform 2D game engine, release 1.2.83.  One of the major features of this release is IPv6 only support, a requirement of the Apple App Store.  They also changed the default behavior of the escape key, no longer exiting the engine on press.  There were several other fixes and changes in this release:
