Unity – cross-platform development environment of computer games. Unity allows you to create applications that run under more than 20 different operating systems, including personal computers, game consoles, mobile devices, Internet applications and others. The release of Unity took place in 2005 and since then there is a constant development. The main advantages of Unity are the presence of a visual development environment, cross-platform support and a modular component system. The disadvantages include the emergence of difficulties when working with multicomponent schemes and difficulties in connecting external libraries.Hundreds of games, applications, and simulations are written on Unity that cover many platforms and genres. At the same time, Unity is used by both large developers and independent studios.
What is LTS Release:
Long-term versions (LTS) are designed for users who want to continue to develop and release their games / content, staying on a stable version for a longer period of time.
The long-term version will not have any new features or capabilities, API changes or improvements. It will only fix failures, regressions and problems affecting the wider community, such as problems for users with cooperative support, problems with console SDK / XDKs and major problems that prevent a wide range of users from releasing their games. Each long-term version will be supported for two years.
