Topic: Compatibility break - one step to 0.6.0
Again, alot happened behind the scenes. Maybe you have noticed it already, there was a version change. Oy broke 0.5.2 compatibility as another step to 0.6.0. You can download the newest versions here. (Make sure to always have the latest version, since the static netversion was removed so you can't connect to servers that have a newer version)
What does that mean?
You can't connect to 0.6 trunk servers with a 0.5 version and vice versa. This is a nice step for developers, because they don't have to care about backward-compatibility anymore. Many nice things like country flags for players or a clan tag seperated from the player's name have been added.
Changes that were only possible because of the compatibility break, are marked with green.
Really important changes are bold.
Gameplay changes are red.
