v1.0.2 - Uploaded 01/05/2020 - PUBLIC RELEASE
Build size = 9460kb. (Due to preload bundles now being enabled, which increases the size!)
Implements the bundle preloading. Updated gulpfile.js and local-fork of playcanvas-tools.
v1.0.1 - Uploaded 29/04/2020
Fix bug where older accounts may not show Daily Rewards due to flag "SeenTutorial" remaining false.
Added CSP (Content Security Policy) meta tag to the index.html, per Snap's new policies.
v0.9.52 - Uploaded 24/04/2020
3D Scene is no longer shown behind (a) Daily Rewards and (b) any Adverts in the frontend.
Re-factor and Improve Frontend init flow, only initialise frontend things AFTER Daily Reward is completed.
v0.9.51 - Uploaded 23/04/2020 
Tweak Daily Rewards based on various feedback.
v0.9.47 - Uploaded 21/04/2020 
Daily Rewards updated. Can now award Lenses as well as $$$.
SnapCanvas SDK version updated to v1.2.3 (was previously v1.2.0). Update sc-sdk.js in our scripts.
v0.9.44 - Uploaded 09/04/2020 - PUBLIC RELEASE
Fix: Attempt to make auth flow more robust to reduce errors on GameAnalytics ("BackendController.authenticate(): Empty username!");
Upgrade the GameAnalytics SDK from 4.0.6 to 4.0.10 (https://github.com/GameAnalytics/GA-SDK-JAVASCRIPT).
v0.9.43 - Uploaded 08/04/2020
Fix: Level 15 players now invoke AwardXP() on the server, so played levels are added to the account inventory. Fixes repeated levels being served.
v0.9.42 - Uploaded 02/04/2020
Change InGame Advert cooldown timer from 3s to 6s.
v0.9.41 - Uploaded 02/04/2020

Change Advert cooldown timer from 3s to 6s.
v0.9.40 - Uploaded 31/03/2020
Add analytics events for auth success and auth failure: "AuthSuccess:${this.authAttempts}", "AuthFailed:${this.authAttempts}"
Restore feature (removed in 0.9.36) where players can tap a block to switch character, then immediately move the block. This involved server work, since if switching to another colour is rejected (by the server), need to undo the select and/or move.
v0.9.37 - Uploaded 23/03/2020
Fix: When a player leaves the session (app quit) any shapes that are selected by the player will now be deselected on the server, then broadcast to the remaining clients.
Inactivity kick payload from the server no longer contains a full board-state.
Fix: When a board-state resync occurs, any PuzzleShape deselected by the client is deselected (which is the same), but now that deselection gets broadcast to the other clients in the session. (Incorrectly assumed that a board-state reset on the server would also deselect anything selected, but that's not the case).
v0.9.36 - Uploaded 23/03/2020
Fix (big one): Selecting a character is now fully server authoritative. This should fix all sorts of bugs and weirdness.
When other players select/deselect characters, the select/deselect anims and sound-fx are now shown on the client.
As a result of character changes not always being guaranteed (since the server now arbitrates changes in the character slots), the gameplay feature where you could press on a coloured block, and switch to that character, and thus immediately start to move that block, has been removed.
v0.9.34 - Uploaded 17/03/2020
Greatly improved the code for XP awarding, making it more robust, including behaviour when close-to or at Max Player Level.
Fix: Results screen could sometimes have display overlaps if boosting XP by watching advert. Now fixed.
Fix: Spectators could become active player by clicking on a bot. Now fixed.
The player profile now shows a player's Total XP, rather than accumulation of XP towards the next Player Level.
Note: If at Level 15, and player has reached the XP limit, it will add " (MAX XP)" at the end, so: "150,000XP (MAX XP)"
Removed "EARLY ACCESS" from loading screen.
Added analytics event for pressing the View Leaderboard button in the frontend.
v0.9.32 - Uploaded 13/03/2020

Speed up the XP gloop animation - about twice as quick now.
XP Award for L-1 players is now a fixed amount. Is currently 600 but is configured on the backend using the FtueXPAward property. (Also new addition).
Add Sesion.validateSessionMembers function to track down why getting occasional duplicated character indices.
And similar logging added to the server code to track down the duplicated char indices issue.
v0.9.27b - Uploaded 10/03/2020
Build size = 4602kb.
FTUE changes. Server changes needed for this. Now the server will only pick a tutorial level (id 3, 4, or 5) if all players are L1.
v0.9.26 - Uploaded 09/03/2020
Build size = 4602kb.
Implements Leaderboards. New Leaderboard button on the Frontend Home screen.
v0.9.24 - Uploaded 05/03/2020
Build size = 4597kb.
Put the 1024 x 128 SLIPSTREAM LABS texture back on to the loading screen.
Fix Share button missing textures. (Caused by a change to PlayCanvas setup in merged branch bugs/vote-winner-left-session)
v0.9.23 - Uploaded 05/03/2020
Build size = 4590kb.
Upgrade the GameAnalytics SDK from 3.1.2 to 4.0.6 (https://github.com/GameAnalytics/GA-SDK-JAVASCRIPT).
Fix: Analytics event when error initialising Ad SDK in SnapCanvasHelper.initAds() could sometimes not be sent.
v0.9.22 - Uploaded 04/03/2020
Build size = 4590kb.
Remove some assets which weren't used at all, saves a few more KB.
Fix asserts seen on WayneFab, where a session-member exits during voting causing assert on the voting-results screen.
v0.9.21 - Uploaded 03/03/2020
Build size = 4636kb.
Analytics code tweak - remove calls to AnalyticsManager.isEnabled() - was redundant.
Bitmojis - we were downloading 512x512 Bitmojis, 4 players about 12 variants. Reduced this to 128x128 size. (Note that the voting-results-winner bitmoji is still displayed using a 512x512 texture).
More texture optimisations - anything containing "diffuse" was crunched. Reduces build size by a further ~117KB.
More texture optimisations - Gradient sprites move to their own TextureAtlas, and re-done.
More texture optimisations - SLIDERS_ICONS SHEET_01.png modified (Gradient bits cut-out, see above), then palettised and re-imported. PNG before = 123KB, PNG after = 49KB.
v0.9.20 - Uploaded 02/03/2020
Build size = 4830kb.
Change Nakama endpoint to Prod2.
Update Nakama JavaScript code to latest. See nakama-js.umd.js at https://github.com/heroiclabs/nakama-js/tree/master/dist ** Note: Slipstream have made a couple of tiny modifications to this, so be sure to merge these in to Nakama's version.
Strip loads of code out of nakama-js.umd.js, using // removeIf(NAKAMA_CODE_STRIPPING) (Updates gulpfile.js). Motivation is performance - now have less JavaScript to interpret, rather than build size (saves only 2kb from the .zip).
PuzzleShapeFactory.js asynchronously loads the PuzzleShape materials (contraint-indicators) now. In PlayCanvas assets, all assets in folders /Materials/Blocks/Constraint Indicators/* should now be tagged with 'MaterialConstraintTag' and have their Preload tickbox OFF.
v0.9.19 - Uploaded 27/02/2020
Build size = 5010kb. Decrease vs previous version is due to removing 1024x128 SLIPSTREAM LABS texture, on loading screen.
Refactor FrontEndMenu._adWatched().
Server change: FTUE - If any player is still in the FTUE, ensure a FTUE level is selected. This is so that all players complete all 3 FTUE levels in sequence, so they always level up to L2.
Server change: PuzzleSelection - Previously the PuzzlePicker machine used the Level of the LEADER player to define the Puzzle-Pool. So if a leader is at L3, but non-leader players are at L8, the server would only pick levels from Group3. Whereas if the leader was L8, and the non-leaders are at L3, the server would pick levels up to Group8. This has been changed such that now, the PuzzlePicker code on the server now picks from the puzzle-group of the highest level of all active players in the session.

Frontend Ad cooldown - now shows "AD BREAK" for a few seconds after showing an advert.
In-Game Ad cooldown - ad button is hidden for a few seconds after showing it.
FTUE: Split up FTUE into more sections (fewer pages for each of the 3 tutorial levels). Other miscellaneous FTUE improvements.

Clients joining a session with a leader will be automatically made an active player, if a slot is available.
New feature: Implements a means for players to suggest to other players, which blocks to move. Tapping on a PuzzleShape which is owned by another player, will shake that PuzzleShape to act as a visual suggestion that that PuzzleShape should be moved.
New feature: Tapping on PuzzleShapes of other colours, which aren't owned by another player, will auto-switch the player so their bot becomes that colour.
