Sorry to anyone who’s still on Mac OS X 10.9 - you should consider upgrading! Studio will stop supporting this version of Mac OS X on November 1st, 2019.
Our International Category got some much-needed love last month! We turned all of the language-specific subcategories into their own categories with organized subcategories. What’s more: they’re opt-in!
We added a search bar to the Studio Settings menu. Now you can find those elusive settings just by searching for them!
Unfortunately, we encountered a bug with the monthly game stats we send out to developers of the top 1000 games of each month. We’re still making progress on a fix for this!
Loading thumbnails has never been easier! The new RbxThumb ContentId format allows you to quickly and easily load thumbnails.
We released some pretty significant changes to the way StreamingEnabled works, including a pause mode for clients that aren’t quite caught up to the game around them.
We’ve given trackpad users full camera control without having to hold down the right mouse button. Check out the announcement for more details and the next steps for trackpad functionality.

We had a blast releasing all of these cool updates this month, and you can certainly expect October to be very exciting .
