Soldat 1.5.1e Beta (with server)

Hello community!

So it's finally here: The long awaited release candidate next beta.

We planned to put out a release candidate but because the anticheat api is not ready yet, we decided to put out beta version first.

This is the dev teams first beta version so if anything fails let me know.

The release candidate will follow later (once the anticheat stuff works :P).

Aaand here is the current changelog:
(Note: It includes all changes since Soldat 1.5.0 not just the stuff we did)
