Quest 5.0 Beta 1 is now available.
The Editor is now fully functional, and although there is still some way to go to make it slicker and easier to use, it is now possible to create a Quest 5.0 game from scratch - in English, Dutch or German.
You can download Quest 5.0 from: quest5.net/index.php?title=Downloads

I still need to update the documentation, so the final release will be available towards the end of August.

Alex, I was just looking at RC2 and it’s significantly improved from one of the betas I looked at a couple months ago. Good work. It’s much more stable.
Also, I’m glad to see there’s more robust documentation now. As someone who hasn’t really worked with previous versions of Quest, it’s always good to have documentation.
