Newsbrief: Epic Games has released the latest version of Unreal Engine, 4.11, and it contains a host of improvements derived from the development of the company's upcoming MOBA, Paragon -- including hair, cloth, and eye simulation improvements, as well as other meaningful graphical tweaks.

But things don't stop there; there are improvements to its DirectX 12 support, including support for Xbox One, and on the Apple side, Metal on Mac is now supported, too.

Interestingly, the company has also added "experimental" support for complex text rendering for right-to-left languages like Arabic, as noted by Rami Ismail on Twitter. The company is looking for feedback on this new functionality, too.

There's a lot more to the update: Take a look at the patch notes.
