    Hi everyone,

    I am concerned. I have been watching the beta release notes and there has been few to no bug fixes for UIToolkit. There are a lot of bugs and I thought I read UIToolkit was going to be production ready at the end of this year.

    I am just wondering why there are barely any bug fixes showing up in the beta releases and if the production ready version is pushed back?

    Noticed that too. For both the Alpha and Beta. My (Guess) is that there's a lot of under-the-hood changes to the code generation / compilation backend happening right now. Work that started for 2021.2 and now even more massive changes to the .NET support, IL2CPP compilation in 2022.1. All of that probably creates a lot of instability and requires much more regression testing.

    Just take a look at this thread: https://forum.unity.com/threads/unity-future-net-development-status.1092205/

    It's not a small undertaking.

    I have looked at numbers quickly and I counted around 50 bug fixes for UI Toolkit in the beta cycle of 2021.2.

    Are there specific areas that you are concerned about ? Or specific issues IDs you are following ?

    Thanks

    I hope it won't take too long!

    I might have missed a few, or just overlooked the editor UIToolkit fixes as I am mainly focused on runtime.

    One of the main concerns I have seen around the forums and myself is the scrollview:
