Network Messaging Changes:

Following the network packing rewrite from earlier this month the code responsible for low-level network messages like the queue, authentication, BattlEye, etc has been rewritten. These systems are now more performant, resilient, and sets the foundation for the next step: game netcode improvements.

Important notice for plugin developers: the next set of network changes will remove support for RPC onTriggerSend and onTriggerReceive. If your plugins are using them please discuss here and we will find an alternative: Issue Tracker[github.com]
