This release is *huge*, it features many balances & new things but also change some low level things.
Display code switched to SDL1.3, keybinds had to be reset for it, so make sure you check your bindings.

Release highlights:
New classes: Necromancer and Marauder
Improved classes: Shadowblade, Summoner, Cursed/Doomed, Chronomancers, Alchemist, Mindslayer, Rogue
Talent icons: all talents now have an icon and the hotkeys bar uses them
Introduction of real (and easy to make) item sets
Local scores
Loading/progress bars along with a nice painted background
Many new painted lore
All stores and all artifacts now have a tile
New zones: Slazish Fens, Last Hope Graveyard, special non-random exploratory farportal zone

Game loading speed should be much improved (only when using the official releases which package the code in a special way)
"Exploration" mode for Donators: infinite lives
Multiple new or improved artifacts, some of which are sets
New tilesets: Cave, Rift

Expanded changelist:
