Babylon.js 6.0 Code Freeze

Hey All,

The countdown to Babylon.js 6.0 has officially begun!

As we approach the release we are “freezing” the Babylon.js code to focus on stability and final polish on the release.

This means we will not be merging any new major feature contributions until after the release (currently scheduled for March 30th).


OMG!!! Come on Atreyu!!! BJS6 :rocket::rocket::rocket:

BTW, can I confirm major feature of 6.0? When 5.0 was released, major feature such as GUI Editor, Animation Curve Editor, Material Plugin, WebGPU, Performance Profiler, and so on had been released.
I searched github and medium of BJS, I could not find any info.

If these are not secret, I’ll appreciate I can know.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

We never keep secrets!
Oh, wait… well, maybe one or two! :wink:


Thanks for your reply @RaananW !

I’m looking forward to them!

@PirateJC Come on sir! 15 days… Spoilers :raised_hands::raised_hands::raised_hands::joy::joy::joy:

… and then you publish 5.53.0 today! :joy:

Nothing stopping from multiple releases in a day though!!!

Any news on the 6.0 release date and specs? We’re eager to make a decision on whether we will use it for a new project. Thanks!

We’re close! We announced that we’re pushing the release back to 4/20 to give the BIG feature a little more time in the oven.


Yes, I finally did read the content of your message posted 2-weeks ago announcing this delay (thanks to @Pryme8 comment). It seems like I have a tendency for reading only the content that suits me and disregard the rest :grin:

Another cup of coffee…

Since it looks like most of us are willing to either praise or challenge the new AI, I thought… Ok then, what about asking chatGPT to ‘anticipate’ the new features of BJS version 6.
And here goes (is it any close?) :grin: :thinking:
