New point release also includes x86 support for Android

Unity 4.6 adds new UI system and source code

Unity Technologies has released version 4.6 of its popular game engine, which introduces a brand new user interface system. 

The tech allows developers to create their own UI within the editor. They can also check out the source code for the UI system, which lets devs "build a UI module that will work as a drop-in replacement for the bundled UI system", according to the official blog.

"The release cycle has indeed been long," the company wrote, "but we’ve taken the time needed to work with you to test the UI system and incorporate your feedback to ship a UI system that we’re really proud of."

Unity 4.6 also adds x86 support for Android, opening the options of FAT, x86 or ARMv7 as a build target so devs can export for x86 Android devices such as Google’s new Nexus player.
