Unity UI Extensions 2019.4 (v2.2) update released


Update 2019.4 - 2.2 - Back from the future

It's been a long year since the last official release of the Unity UI Extensions project and WOW, have there been a lot of ups and downs. Big thanks to the community for their support of the project whether that was funds, code or even just testing and helping to iron out some pesky bugs.

Installation Instructions

As of Unity 2019, there are now two paths for getting access to the Unity UI Extensions project:

  • Unity 2019 or higher The recommended way to add the Unity UI Extensions project to your solution is to use the Unity package Manager. Simply use the Unity Package Manager to reference the project to install it

Alternatively, you can also use the pre-compiled Unity packages if you wish, however, UPM offers full versioning support to allow you to switch versions as you wish.

  • Unity 2018 or lower The pre-compiled Unity assets are the only solution for Unity 2018 or earlier due to the changes in the Unity UI framework in Unity made for 2019. Either clone / download this repository to your machine and then copy the scripts in, or use the pre-packaged .UnityPackage for your version of Unity and import it as a custom package in to your project.

Upgrade Notes

Due to the restructure of the package to meet Unity's new package guidelines, we recommend Deleting the current Unity UI Extensions folder prior to importing the new package.

For Unity 2019 users using the new UPM deployment, be sure to delete the existing folder in your assets folder before adding the new package to avoid conflict.
