There are nearly 300 new features/changes/optimizations mentioned for this Flax Engine 1.2 update and another 100+ fixes mentioned just for this release alone.

The Flax Engine has its sources available but the licensing calls for it to be free for uncommercial/educational usage but a 4% royalty after your game earns $25k USD per calendar quarter.
