    Hey,

    A quick summary from Unite:
    - New version coming in the next 1-2 months. Will include authoring tools (GO-like object with conversion to an entity, same as regular unity - I think it is mentioned in the keynote) and 3D preview. It will not be compatible with the previous version, but this should be the last release which is incompatible with previous versions.
    - Release version expected in 2020
    - Learn DOTS in regular Unity if you want a headstart, main Unity functions which will be converted into DOTS might be available in Tiny to an extent.(The way I see it, it looks like Unity will eventually be fully DOTS)

    Please correct me if I misinterpreted something or if you know more.

    Which talk or talks did that information come from?

    They said it in the dedicated Tiny talk, it is not on YouTube yet.

    "It will not be compatible with the previous version, but this should be the last release which is incompatible with previous versions."

    How sure are you about this? Will this mean all my current work can be deleted?

    Also heard it on the talk, mainly because the workflow will be a bit different (GameObject-like objects in editor, entites on runtime).

    You could probably salvage huge chunks of your porject even if you would decide to upgrade the Tiny version though.
