New Game Maker Beta(s)

Sources & Credit: sandy

YYG posted a new version of GM4MAC recently and last weekend Mark posted the second release candidate of Game Maker 8. Sandy asks all not to ask when they'll be released as they are still developing the necessary infrastructure on the YYG website to support the final releases of Game Maker. Sandy says it's a big job, but they'll let us know as soon as it's ready.

Enjoy and don’t forget to provide feedback via the Beta Testing servers.
Note: They’re aware that there is one severe bug with the Mac version related to scaling images and they’re working hard to solve this.
