2020.1.14f1 Release Notes

System Requirements Changes

For running Unity games
  • iOS: minimum version incremented to 10.0 (from 9.0).

Fixes

  • 2D: Reduced memory used for Automatic Slicing of Sprites. (1263213)

  • Android: Fixed to switch internal Unity allocator to DynamicHeapAllocator which is compatible with Scudo allocator introduced in Android 11. This fixes an error "Using memoryadresses from more than 16GB of memory". If by some reason you want to revert to previous allocator, pass "-systemallocator" command line argument in UnityPlayerActivity updateUnityCommandLineArguments. (1284525)

  • Asset Bundles: Fixed AssetBundle related race condition that would occasionally crash when calling AssetBundle.Unload while an async load operation out of that AssetBundle was in progress. (1228306)

  • Asset Import: Fixed reimport of an FBX used in prefabs to be faster in large scenes. (1279974)

  • Package Manager: Fixed an issue where requests would fail when they took over 2 minutes to complete. (1287098)

  • Package Manager: Fixed the Packager Manager to no longer fail to write the project manifest file (Packages/manifest.json) or the lock file (Packages/packages-lock.json) when they are read-only. (1263361)

  • Physics: Fixed an occasional crash when destroying a PhysicsScene2D while destroying active contacts or collider-ignore-collision settings. (1268659)

  • Physics: Fixed to ensure that changing a Rigidbody2D constraint on a prefab instance results in the change being indicated by a bold label in the inspector. (1265836)

  • Physics: Fixed to ensure that changing the Rigidbody2D mass distribution correctly adjusts the center of mass velocity. (1272075)

  • Physics: Fixed to ensure the 2D per-frame SimulationMode2D correctly runs the simulation after the Update script callback and not before it to match FixedUpdate script callback. (1274820)

    Now user code no longer interferes with prefab importer's preview scenes. (1246844)

  • Prefabs: Fixed that a reference to the root prefab child is lost when pressing "Unpack Prefab" on root prefab and entering Play mode. (1151512)

  • Profiler: Fixed CPU Module Detailed view sorting when search field is active. (1214785)

  • Profiler: Fixed issue where entering PlayMode with the editor open would throw "GetInt is not allowed error". (1289794)

  • Profiler: Fixed scroll wheel to now work on the scroll bars in the profiler timeline view. (1280335)

  • Profiler: Fixed visualization of a selected frame which is no longer available in Profiler hierarchy view to unify hierarchy and timeline view behavior. (1242627)

  • SceneManager: Fixed GetManagerFromContext crash when unloading a Scene while loading another Scene asynchronously with allowSceneActivation = false. (1092438)

  • Scripting: Fixed generic mono array overwrite in bindings code. (1268308)

  • Scripting: Fixed issue where thread statics that reused thread static slots would not adhere to type alignment. This would cause the garbage collector to incorrectly clean up thread static data because it would only scan pointer aligned memory for references. This would lead to memory becoming corrupted and inducing random crashes. (1266322)

  • Shaders: Fixed files not enabling Adreno framebuffer fetch extension. (1269926)

  • Terrain: Fixed such that Paint Tools which are overriden forward shortcut selection to the tool that is overriding them. (1251645)

  • UI: Fixed OnDrop callback not being called when using a TouchScreen. (1279352)

  • UI Toolkit: Added EditorWindow.CreateGUI entry point to safely add visual elements to the window. (1281376)

  • WebGL: Fixed DST time computation for locales that have changed their DST behavior since year 2000. (e.g. Lithuania). (1179945)

  • Windows: Fixed crashes in PhraseRecognizer when mic disconnected. (1268538)

  • XR: Fixed to utilize volume up and down buttons on VR devices to confirm and proceed when Android dialog is not visible on VR devices instead of only restricting to click "Ok" button on screen. (1140155)

Changes

  • Burst: Changed to temporarily remove the Burst compiler warning about exception throws not in [Conditional("ENABLE_UNITY_COLLECTIONS_CHECKS")] methods, to let us address user feedback. The next minor version of Burst will reincorporate this in a more friendly manner.

Improvements

  • Android: Improved scuh that in the case of incomplete application install, where native libraries are missing, a dialog will be shown where app can be gracefully quit. Previous behaviour was an application crash in com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayer.<clinit>, java.lang.System.loadLibrary functions. (1281533)

  • IL2CPP: Improved error message when required Visual Studio components are not installed when building for Windows.

System Requirements
