The world of real-time communication in gaming and digital applications is constantly evolving, and staying ahead of these changes is crucial for developers. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the release of version 1.8.2 of our ODIN Software Development Kit (SDK) for Unreal Engine, packed with enhancements that promise to elevate your development experience.

What’s New in v1.8.2?

  • Improved Plugin Compatibility: In our ongoing effort to ensure smooth integration with a wide range of Unreal Engine projects, we’ve renamed the odin.h core SDK header file. This change addresses and prevents naming conflicts with other plugins, ensuring a more streamlined development process.

  • Crucial Bug Fix: We’ve addressed a significant bug related to the BytesToString and StringToBytes functions in Unreal Engine, which previously disrupted the peer/room user data byte array format. This fix is based on detailed community feedback (see the forum post for more details). Our commitment to community-driven improvements continues to shape the ODIN SDK, making it more robust and developer-friendly.

Looking Back: v1.8.1 Enhancements

While we didn’t announce it separately, version 1.8.1 also brought a subtle yet impactful change:

  • Streamlined Codebase: We removed the unused ConstructJsonValue function. This refinement aligns with our philosophy of lean and efficient code, ensuring that every element of the ODIN SDK is essential and purpose-driven.
