    Has anyone heard about when the next alpha is coming out. It has been almost three weeks since the last version. I kind of looking forward to the next alpha because dark theme will be in it for everyone. Is there any changes to release schedules?

    Not sure if that applies to the alpha/beta versions, but "doing things better" might affect how long certain things take to reach that new quality standard. Just a thought.

    Would be fair to give a note to alpha and beta testers on the forums if they are going to skip a release :) Just by looking issue reports, a20 has been used internally for a good while and they are at a21 now. I wouldn't be surprised if a21 or b1 would be the next 2020.2 version we get.

    If they skipped 20 internally might of have a major breaking bug. Another two reasons could be maybe they are switching it to the beta stage that or they could have been waiting on the free dark theme announcement that was made. As long as the update the forum users I have no problem waiting. If they said hey we waiting another week for a reason sure no problem. They just need to warn users before a weekly update becomes a three week update.

    yeah, this is one reason I am looking forward to the next alpha. I been thinking about buying blue light glasses just because Unity light hurts my eyes after a couple hours.

    To be honest I'm just asking to be able to edit shaders and visual effects using the graph editor.
    Currently it's broken if you have sub groups :(

    I've been looking forward to get the graphics 10.x.x package from the package manager. I imagine 2020.2b will provide that... if not alpha

    Hi everybody,

    There was an issue with 20a that kept us from publishing it. 21a should be published later today.
