Release notes

We already know that there still is A LOT of work to do on physics.
However, we thought it would be a good idea, after five months of wait, to release a "snapshot" of development to:
- let you test all the new features and changes
- collect feedback
- allow modders to use the tracks created with the latest tools

From now on, having completed the biggest tasks ( that were the dynamic track surface and wet terrain ), you can expect more frequent updates.

Should a beta 3 dedi server show up in the master list yet or has that yet to be updated?

First impressions are pretty good, training only so cant really get an impression of deformation but the handling is smoother, pulling away on a hill after a crash is easier and overall no negatives so far.
Looking forward to some multiplayer action.

Deformation works in testing, too:

Nice, look forward to testing that out tomorrow.
Just had a run on Practice track and the bike seems to feel unnaturally fast. Is there a big change to the bike or is it just my imagination and track limits making it narrower?
Thanks.

The compacting resistance has been greatly lowered. Maybe too much?

Woot! D/L'ing now. I'm bombin' down the information superhighway at a gas-guzzling 200 KB/s! By the time I type this out it'll have finished. Thanks for your continued honesty and frankness about this dev process Mr.(Mrs? Ms?) Pi, Bo or So. I really look forward to checking out the new build.

The new rider animations are awesome.  He looks very good on the bike.  I'm not quite sure what the "compacting resistance" is, but I would guess that it has been lowered too much.  I have very little feel for the front wheel.  It seems to wobble all around and just slide when I come into turns.
