Congratulations with the release!

I would like to ask for a Mac native title bar option. in 2020 the title bar changes depending on the light or dark theme.
I'm using the light theme and the title bars is now a different grey color that does not follow the OSX UI standard.

I can understand why it happened, but please make it optional. I prefer to have the light theme with OS native title bars ( in my case black )

OSX Native:

Where is ECS? I thought it would leave preview status in this version?

TextMesh Pro: the latest preview package is installed by default in new projects instead of the stable one.

There was an update to the Jobs system somehow between 2020.1.0b16 and 2020.1.0f1 which deprecated WithDeallocateOnJobCompletion. Now there's WithDisposeOnCompletion instead.

However, using it throws Invalid IL Code exceptions like this:
InvalidProgramException: Invalid IL code in Somenamespace.Somesystem/Somenamespace.<>c__DisplayClass_SomeJobName:RunWithoutJobSystem (void*): IL_0000: ldarg.1

As soon as I just remove WithDisposeOnCompletion, the error is gone. The error itself points strait to the line where I define the "Job.WithCode". In my case, what I want to dispose is just some EntityQuery.ToEntityArray with allocation type TempJob.

/edit: I know what's up: For some reason I had this in a job I used ".Run()" on which totally doesn't make sense. It works on scheduled jobs. However, this was working before but I guess this is a "fix" then?

/edit2: This actually happened in another Entities Package update. The weird thing is that I was using 0.11preview4 all the time and the package managed didn't show me any newer versions. However the version introducing it was actually released just some days after 11p4? What... also the documentation url com.unity.entities@latest was pointing to 11p4 until 2020.1 was released. Confusing stuff.

Anyone else notice a pretty significant speed increase with 2020.1, at least as far as editor fps reporting is concerned? All the projects I've tested here have about a 10-20% boost. It seems particularly impactful on CPU processing, whereas the places where GPU was being challenged are still getting bogged down in a similar fashion in 2020.

I also noticed that setting the vSync count doesn't seem to have any effect. Frames are not getting locked to 30, or 60, they are just full on as fast as possible.

If you need to look somewhere about that, the last version where the layouts behaved normally was 2019.3.15f1.

The last time non English keyboards were recognized is lost to the ages.


Might be because of code running in Release instead of Debug mode by default which should increase performance.

Make sure that vsync is turned on in the game window resolution setting.

We tried to update our project to 2020.1.0f1 but we get "The type or namespace name 'TMPro' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?".

Could you please recommend how to fix this?

Thanks I didn't know about either of those new options. I still think vsync is bugged. Turning it on sets frames closer to 60, but not exact, and setting every other blank doesn't seem to do anything. The debug doesn't seem to affect performance (at least in my single test scene), but I'm happy to see any kind of performance boost in the editor.


Deinstall the package TextMeshPro and reinstall it, or update it to whatever version will fit your project.

Possible bug:

WebGL 1.0 is called OpenGLES 2.0. I thought was a more serious bug until I tested.

We already tried that and no luck. We are already on the latest version on TextMeshPro.


Try older versions then. :)

In this Editor Version there are missing packages not shown in the Package Explorer.
Like for "Unity Physics" in my case. I even have it installed now but its still filtered out in the Registry view.
This would block users to locate and install it via Package Manager.
I had it uninstalled and could not find it. Its installed as a dependency to Havok physics now in my case.
I think this is not intentional !?
