GameMaker Studio 2 update 2.3.1 is another evolution of the new Sequences functionality introduced in 2.3. We've added Bezier curve support and improved the dopesheet and curve editor workflows to allow you to more accurately control and develop your Sequences. 2.3.1 introduces new functions to scale/rotate your sequence and to query information from your curves and enabled broadcast messages in all Sprites so they can trigger events in-game.
There are also some very important fixes for project conversion and configs support in the IDE, garbage collection and configs support in-game, plus updated SDKs/external tools for many of the platforms. Introduced Windows x64, Ubuntu ARM, and UWP multiple-architectures-in-one-package and Apple Silicon-compatible macOS output types also.
Check out all the details with the IDE and Runtime release notes:
