  • Added Font:getKerning.
  • Added support for r16, rg16, and rgba16 pixel formats in Canvases.
  • Added Shader:send(name, matrixlayout, data, ...) variant, whose argument order is more consistent than Shader:send(name, data, matrixlayout, ...).

Other Changes

  • Changed certain out-of-Lua-memory situations to show a message box instead of instantly crashing.


  • Fixed build-time compatibility with Lua 5.4.

  • Fixed errors on some systems related to > 53 bit pointer addresses, when recent versions of LuaJIT 2.1 are used.
  • Fixed drag-and-drop to open a love game on macOS causing love.event.quit("restart") to fail.

  • Fixed love.displayrotated being given a boolean instead of an enum string.
  • Fixed memory corruption and a crash when drawing smooth lines.

  • Fixed love.graphics.newVolumeImage when explicit mipmaps are provided.
  • Fixed freezes and crashes in automatic batching when an AMD GPU is used.
  • Fixed love.graphics.print and Image:replacePixels on more AMD/ATI GPUs.
  • Fixed Font:setFallbacks to account for different DPI scales in each fallback font.

  • Fixed DXT1 textures which use 1 bit alpha-cutout.
  • Fixed rare issues where textures were not sent to shaders correctly.
  • Fixed Shader:send(name, data, matrixlayout, ...).
  • Fixed quad offsets in ParticleSystems when ParticleSystem:setOffset is not used.
  • Fixed rounded rectangles breaking if the rx or ry parameters are negative.
