Upcoming version to finally add Windows support

Unity Technologies has lifted the veil on the latest update to its Unity engine - including the long-awaited ability to develop games on Windows machines.

The free update adds support for both Vista and XP, featuring 100 per cent feature parity and interoperability with the Mac version – and games developed will function on both operating systems automatically.

Also coming in the 2.5 update are significant improvements to the user interface, including a new tabbed layout, redesigned components for more intuitive development and 130 new script hooks for tailoring your own authoring tools.

The update is currently in beta, with Unity hoping to release it 'soon'. More information about the update can be found here.
