was released on June 13, 2021. The main downloads of Ren'Py 7.4.6 are:
You only need to download one of these three files. Each contains the full Ren'Py software development kit, with everything needed to develop Ren'Py games for Windows XP and up, Mac OS X 10.6 and up, and Linux x86/x86_64. The development environment contains the files needed to produce games for all three platforms, the Ren'Py tutorial, and "The Question", an example game.
Ren'Py is free to download and use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. It may be modified and distributed under the terms of its license.
Additional Downloads. When necessary, the Ren'Py SDK will automatically download additional packages, such as text editors and Android/iOS support. These packages are available for direct download at the bottom of this page.
I'm happy to announce Ren'Py 7.4.6, the sixth patch release for the 7.4 series. This release contains a number of fixes for 7.4.5, both to improve platform compatibility and to extend some to the features added for the new 3D Stage.
This release include a new camera statement, which is used to introduce transforms that will persist until changed. This allows the show layer statement to revert to the behavior it had in 7.4.4, improving compatibility with projects in production. At the same time, it allows more concise control of the camera in 3D productions.
This release introduces the Model displayable. While right now focused on allowing multiple textures to be combined (it's now possible to implement dissolve-like transforms without a creator-defined displayable), it will in the future serve as a way to access 2D and 3D model functionality.
This release fixes a mistake in the 7.4.5 that prevented builds from working on iOS, and gets the model-based renderer working on that platform.
This release updates Atom and the language-renpy plugin.
In addition, there are a number of bug fixes and other improvements.
Ren'Py 7.4 is the the product of over a year of development, and one of the biggest releases of Ren'Py to date. This series of releases focuses on updating Ren'Py's internals so that Ren'Py is ready for its next 15 years.
Ren'Py 7.4 is brought to you by:
everyone who's tested this release, and myself, Tom "PyTom" Rothamel.

A list of changes that may require you to update your game can be found at:
When first asked to edit a file, the Ren'Py launcher will prompt you to download and install an editor. As this may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, the editors can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the editor archive to the Ren'Py directory.
When building Android packages, iOS packages, or web distributions, Ren'Py will prompt you to download RAPT (Ren'Py Android Packaging Tool), Renios (Ren'Py iOS Support), or Renpyweb (Web Platform Support). As these downloads may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, these packages can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the archive to the Ren'Py directory. (Place the "rapt", "renios", or "web" directory into the "renpy-7.4.6" directory.)
