`??` and various improvements


  • [beta] Added null-conditional operators!
    These allow you to do things like instance_nearest(x, y, obj_enemy)?.cur_health ?? 0 instead of assigning result of instance_nearest into a temporary variable, checking that it’s not noone, grabbing cur_health from it, or returning 0 otherwise.


  • Added #mfunc to auto-completion list.
  • Outline View is now better at displaying 2.3 top-level functions.
  • Outline View can now display static functions inside constructors.
  • Added more settings to Outline View.
  • Added a separate keyboard shortcut for folding only #regions (default: Ctrl+Shift+M)
  • When the cursor is on JSDoc immediately before a global function, the function will now be highlighted instead of the previous one.
  • GMEdit now handles @func JSDoc in GMS2.3 projects.
    I also take a moment to remind you that you should not use @func for hinting methods inside constructors as it adds auto-completion and highlighting items into global scope.


  • Fixed function name() in Create events not being added to object variable list.
  • Fixed var a:Enum = fn() ++a.field (note the missing ;) not using the correct accessor.
  • Fixed newly added GMS2.2 resources having their fields inside YYP out of order.
    (didn’t break anything, but IDE would eventually reformat these)
  • Fixed freshly created 2.3 objects not being possible to use as a parent until reloading a project.


  • Current theme name is now stored in html[data-theme].
    This allows to set theme-specific rules in project-specific CSS.
  • Keyboard shortcuts menu now supports descriptions (shown as mouseover text).
  • Updated the GMLive.js build to handle editing-related logic on GMEdit side of code.
    (hopefully nothing should be different)

Stable channel has everything up until null-conditional operators.
