    GRAPHICS:
    ---------------------------
    Fixed issue where suspension gets distorted wildly when a wheel breaks off.
    Sun occlusion processing now properly restored after lost device.
    Correct a problem where sometimes the visual tire contact equation wouldn't be properly updated.
    smooth out visual contact patch plane equation over time so tire doesn't instantly deform
    Fixed problem where skins would get applied inappropriately (to the windshield, for example).
    Fix a bug with FXAA and multiview
    Correct alignment of horizon haze.
    tweaked pit director position so he's less likely to be standing inside your vehicle
    Added an HDR parameter
    fixed HDR lum histogram from over-accumulation during pauses.
    Ref mapper optimization
    Fix occasional brightness pulsing in HDR mode.
    Fixed missing particle FX from cockpit / TV cockpit mode, but re-introduced some sorting artifacts on cars which will have to fixed in the mod.
    Fixed alt-tab bug in MP mode.


    GAMEPLAY:
    ----------------------------
    Added fix for safety car conflicts
    unsportsmanlike conduct penalty should be working again
    attempt to fix issue where drivers wouldn't get appropriately blue-flagged if exiting the pits right in front of somebody
    fixed the fallback case for determining the vehicle class


    PHYSICS:
    ----------------------------
    New engine model can be damaged now, and can't be run with the crankshaft rotating the wrong way!
    Added HDV parameters CorrectedInnerSuspHeightFront and CorrectedInnerSuspHeightRear (in addition to the existing CorrectedInnerSuspHeight) in case somebody needs different values front/rear. Also removed obsolete FixInnerSuspHeight.
    'Simple' garage values (which include a large portion of the available modifications) can now be overridden by Special instructions.


    AI:
    ----------------------------
    fixed AI cars slowing down near garage locations of remote vehicles in multiplayer.
    fixed AI slowing down for cars in pits for some tracks (brianza)
    fixed AI doubling up in pits or getting into state where they pit but pit action does nothing by eliminating the timeout (was 150 seconds) on pit requests.
    fixed issue where damaged AI historic vehicles could end up with highly unusual aerodynamic properties
    fixed ai slow downs when only ai on a client (ie, when you're connected to multiplayer game and turn control over to ai)
    fixed ai drivers pulling out of pits and immediately slamming into the wall
    improved ai handling of front-wheel drive cars


    UI / HUD:
    ----------------------------
    added new toggle gizmo for RFM page for virtual mods to show up in RFM spinner
    made pit menu obey CompoundRestrictions when front and rear compounds are required to match (you can still get compound mixes but only by changing only fronts or rears at a stop)
    made vehicle picking one gizmo instead of two.
    removed all code for old vehicle selection gizmo and a team selection scroll box that wasn't being used.
    tried to autojoin the server after downloading and installing it's mod.
    tried to center loading bars.
    building team list from veh parameter 'category' (fullteam tree path) rather than just team, since cars in wildly different series can share the team... thus some would be culled from the tree display.
    decoupled options and HUD widescreen variable.
    options now letterbox when defined (in OSC) options res is widescreen but config res is 4:3.
    also removed WidescreenUI variable getting set to true when in a 4:3 res.
    Now allow HUDs to be in resolutions other than 1280X960.
    New support for options in resolutions other than 1280X960
    mouselessscrollbox text scaling fix
    Attempt to filter qualifier keys (shift, alt, ctrl) from back-to-monitor keypress.


    BUG FIXES:
    ----------------------------
    a few memory leaks and some other cleanup
    fixed tracks coming up with wrong handedness in cases where starting grid is 3-2-3-2 (or really any, as long as at least 2 cars are next to each other in all rows) instead of standard 2-2-2-2. (was causing ai cars to violently swerve when skipping formation laps & other problems)
    Some changes made to speed up selecting a different mod (hopefully this doesn't break anything).
    fixed possible thread-safety issue


    MULTIPLAYER:
    ----------------------------
    changed dedicated server caption to be the base directory to help server operators distinguish between multiple servers on a single computer.
    Fixed "Available Opponents" listing on dedicated server, so now multiplayer vehicle filters work.
    fixed multiplayer vehicle filter for list box selector
    fixed multiplayer vehicle filter for scrolling select
    Some multiplayer.ini housecleaning.
    encode name & password
    increased mp download limit.
    added password verification for downloadable mods
    check *all* client nodes for timeout, including pending drivers, other spectators, and those with non-scored vehicles


    CONTROLLER/FFB:
    ----------------------------
    setup FFB "effects driver" only once, and also stopped needlessly re-initialized the controllers
    untested attempt to make LEDs work on modified Logitech DFP


    REPLAYS:
    ----------------------------
    simplified and improved correction of wheel orientation in replays/multiplayer
    improved replays of parts falling off vehicles
    Replay format has changed slightly for various improvements, sorry it's not backwards-compatible!
    Current tread surface properties now recorded in replay and transmitted in multiplayer.
    Recording tire carcass movement for player now.
    Mostly fixed terrain feedback in replays.
    Fixed another bug with special effects in replay where smoke would flicker and skids would have gaps.
    A bit more precision for special effects in multiplayer/replays.
    Fixed wheel vertical location when viewing replay of player vehicle (same bug caused an offset in the reported mWheelYLocation for telemetry).
    Improved replays of parts falling off vehicles.
    Fixed new issue where replay/multiplayer flatspots (and any other tread properties that aren't uniform around the tire circumference) might not appear in correct place. However, this sometimes causes a side effect in replay/multiplayer of a tire spinning unnaturally in order to move to the correct orientation.
    fixed jerking trackside cameras when rewinding in replay
    fixed a couple things regarding wheel orientation in replay.


    MODDING
    ----------------------------

    I need fps improvement. Anyone has tested if is that included with new update?
    I think an "rollback" button to previous release will be good to the chosen ones wich has worse performance with the new release.
    Now i´m gonna cross my finger to not be a "happy" chosen one.
