Over five months in the making and now we are back for good!

Main features of this version are:

* Mouse wheel (or other axis) can now be mapped to cycle Weapons
* Reworked homing missiles
* Full UDP/IP Multiplayer online-capabilities
* Big improvements in Multiplayer code
* Improved Cockpit drawing
* Grow/Shrink Window keys removed - cycle cockpit-modes with F3
* Improved Memory usage in menus
* Reworked INI/Command-line options (check out the NEW ini file/help screen)
* Rewritten briefings
* Resolution now stored in descent.cfg - no resolution changes anymore
* Fixed some 64Bit bugs in Multiplayer
* Improved collision-detection
* New Multiplayer game profiles
* Countless of small bugfixes and fixed glitches (see CHANGELOG.txt for a full list of changes)

Thanks for the nice words :)

Well it's still far from what I would wish but for a small-time hobby it made a big step again. And more is about to come - I still have some plans for these engines.

Great work it feels like the original D2 and I've never had many problems.
