That is correct, it also fixes issues with tilemap. However, it has MAJOR perfomance issues on HTML5 (WebGL). My game has 60fps with 1.5.2 and is dropping to 25-29fps with 1.7.2. This is really bad, and Im not sure what they did, but performance is terrible. I have to say, Im really frustrated with Creator since 1.6. There are a lot of issues, bugs and performance problems.
Here there are 2 screenshots of a small animated intro (it is not even a game, just a bunch of animated sprites with music).
Version 1.5.2 (60 fps)
Version 1.7.2Beta2 (28-30fps)
@slackmoehrle I would appreciate if you can ask anyone in the team if they noticed performance issues.
