A recent press release by David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies stated; Every time we ship a new version of Unity, we’re looking to empower developers with technology that’s more powerful and easier to apply than ever before, With the huge additions of physically-based shading, lighting workflows, a new platform, and a new built-in method for user acquisition, we’re improving Unity dramatically from both a creative and business perspective.
The Unity 5 engine has added some huge features this time. The most notable of which includes 64bit support and improved audio tools and lighting tools. Unity has also partnered up with Mozilla to bring Unity 5 to WebGL. This means that the new engine may run within Firefox without any need for additional plug-ins! An awesome prospect.
So there you have it, the latest version of Unity is ready for pre order now and the WebGL add-on will be ready later this year. Al in all, good news folks. As usual, the price isn’t cheap, but you pay for what you get and you get a lot.
