    • - Shows "Host" in the ping column for the host player,
    • - Display overlay while playing in the background, or lock into full UI,

    • Added ser_ulMaxClientBPS cvar, which imposes an upper limit on bandwidth used per client (in bytes per second) on a server.
    • +exec Lua code can now set values of cvars that are not yet declared. To be able to do that, all accesses to Lua global vars are forbidden. To create/access Lua globals, use a predefined "globals" table.

    • Separate setting for autochange weapon in multiplayer games.

    • Fixed crashes when invoking samVoteIsEnabled, samVoteDisable and samVoteEnable from the console.

    • Fixed random crashes and lockups on exit that would happen if user exited the server list menu, while it was still searching for more servers.Player join/leave/kill messages, as well as all chat messages, are now writen to the log file in a parser-friendly format.
