I'm happy to announce: Soldat 1.6.7 is ready!

This version took longer than expected due to changes in our build scripts.
It includes mostly fixes but also a few features.

Big thanks to the the beta testers, everyone who helped with this release and of course the Soldat Devteam members who helped with this version.

Here some highlights of this version:

New background poly type (not in any default map yet)

Cursor scales when moving
