Update Notes

Update Notes:

Earlier this year the lower-level network data packing and messaging systems were rewritten. This update builds upon those by rewriting the gameplay-level netcode systems. All features should work the same, but with improved performance especially on the server side.

These changes unlock many possibilities for the coming updates that were previously limited by poor netcode restrictions. In particular the voice chat should perform noticeably better now. Items under active consideration are listed on the roadmap, excluding ideas without a solid plan yet:

The upgrades should be backwards compatible with most server plugins, but in some cases adjustments are necessary. Thanks to many plugin developers for working with us to update their code in advance of this update!

For details about the decisions and thinking behind this rewrite consider reading the accompanying blog post:
