The fourth sprint release of Milestone 5 Jupiter was just pushed to NuGet, GitHub and CodePlex.
It features the OpenTK, GLFW, SharpDX, SlimDX, Xna and MonoGame C# version of the DeltaEngine.

From now on we'll feature only one installer containing all versions of the Delta Engine (you can chose which platforms to install, minimum is OpenTK with the Editor) in order to streamline and simplify the user experience.
Each platform life in it's one sub-directory and you can run all sample games for all installed platforms directly from the Editor using the Sample Browser.

We highly recommend to let the installer set the DeltaEnginePath environment variable to avoid errors of copying native files when using the Editor Project Creator or Visual Studio templates.

Download like always at http://deltaengine.net/download
Note: For some reason CodePlex pushing was not working (abort: HTTP Error 404: Not Found Confused), so for now you have to download the source from GitHub until pushing works again.

Thanks for the release, I already downloaded the installer because it was easier to set up etc :)
Is the installer version upgradeable or do I have to uninstall the previous release each time a new release comes out?
Do you already know when the editor also supports other frameworks like SharpDX (which is prefered by me on my surface pro because I don't want to mess with intels driver anymore, DX is much easier to handle because it works on each of my devices)?
Anyway, the release works as expected for now, if I find something weird, I will report it as always :)
To start with a report, I noticed that the ball in the breakout game is hard to control the further you come in the game, play until level 3/4 and you will notice it. My highest level was afaik level 5, then the ball was too fast to even catch it, maybe it should be capped? It's something which is present since the last releases so it's nothing to do with the current release but I thought I will say it here :)

More reports when they are due :)

From this release on you can just install a new release over a old installation without uninstalling the old one first.
Note that this will not work with previous releases (< because we changed the installer framework from Nullsoft to Inno Setup.
About the Editor question, currently it's not planned to support other frameworks but this might change because of the driver problematic (someone from the Editor team can say more about this).
For the Breakout game, I'll create a case for our sample games guy to take a look at it.

When I try to run the editor I got en error while loading the assemblies in the BinaryDataExtension

{System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.
at System.Reflection.RuntimeModule.GetTypes(RuntimeModule module)
at System.Reflection.RuntimeModule.GetTypes()
at System.Reflection.Assembly.GetTypes()
at DeltaEngine.Core.BinaryDataExtensions.AddAssemblyTypes(Assembly assembly)

The assembly
{DeltaEngine.Editor.AppBuilder, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null}
The Type
{System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'DeltaEngine.Editor.Core.PlatformName' from assembly 'DeltaEngine.Editor.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.}

Kind regards,

Looks like you have some outdated dlls (old installation?)
Please uninstall DeltaEngine, check that the install directory is empty and install again.
