2.3.0 is a huge new release which brings multiple new asset types and editors, significant quality-of-life changes and productivity gains to the existing editors, and a new project format to handle all these new additions. There is a lot changed in this release, so please do read all the release notes carefully and follow the link to our detailed guide to changes in 2.3.0
Please also be aware that opening an existing project in 2.3.0 the first time will ask you to convert the project and save it out again with a new name. This is because the project format has now been changed quite extensively. You will not be able to open newer-style projects in 2.2.5 or older, and similarly 2.3.0 does not allow you to set 2.2.5 or older runtimes as active
See below for IDE changes/fixes and check the Runtime Release Notes for in-game changes/fixes
Because this version is so big and contains so much new stuff these notes will be brief, but for more information on everything below please see this detailed introduction to all the new features and some important notes about moving your projects from 2.2.5 to 2.3.0
