I pity the developer who has to make the full changelog. With over two months of constant progress being made, there have been... quite a few changes.

I already posted these three videos under the YT video thread, but I might as well post them here to show off the cool new stuff.

Those were beautiful.
I'm still rusty with my backwards driving, but it's good to see there are people who can.

Doing the irc test with you guys was pretty titts. Although there's some things that got annoying.
e.g. The nametags of vehicles. In my opinion it's rather useless.
The instances like /race gave me a really hard fps drop and my car started jumping up and down. Anybody else got the same problem?

I have some serious doubts about that 'dead: info' thing, remember the test where a 2.2 deaths occured every second? Imagine the spamming in the chatbox, unless the info is local that might be a grave mistake. Now I will cry for not knowing about that test...

The killfeed for the next public test will most definitely not be outputted to the chat. I agree, that would become ridiculously spammy.
