We appreciate everyones patience in getting this patch released to stable, the bug in 0.42 that caused lag and desync was very hard to track down and fix.

New

  • New zombie animations in testing (they are considerably faster). We will be engaging with the community to decide if these new animations result in the zombies being too fast.

Fixed

0.33.114926

Branch: Stable

ETA: Complete, 5 February 2014

Version: 0.33.114855 0.33.114926

This build continues with small bugfixes and several engine changes.
