@ivanpopelyshev is the alphamap plugin necessary in pixi v4 still or is there an official feature implemented?

Ah okay. No problem. One of our teams is deciding between phaser and pixi 4 so trying to figure out what additional work would be needed to do either. How is the compressed texture loader going? We would most likely need something like that.

I'm working on moving it to v4
as pixi-extra-filters too
what else do you need?
im certain i can backport z-index/z-order from v4.1 to v4
that way you'll be able to sort elements even if they are in different containers

Oh sorry it would be latest v4 so no need to backport. We are currently have one team on pixi 3 and another on phaser.
The improved memory managment on v4 is a big selling point for us.

Z-sorting is going to be super useful for us

v4.1 is experimental
not stable
too many features
but some of them can be backported :)))
there's no other way, @GoodBoyDigital wont allow me to merge it anyway

ah I see well in that case if 4.1 looks more than 2 months out then maybe a backport of zsorting might be good :D
