SOLDAT 1.6.9 RELEASED!

After a long delay I present you: Soldat 1.6.9!

A big thank you to everyone in the dev team who helped with this version especially Exhunter for the scriptcore work and fixing bugs.
Also thanks to urraka for helping in debugging some left over bugs before the release and with releasing this version.

In this release the client enjoyed some minor graphical updates and bugfixes.
On the server side most changes are script core changes and again bug fixes.

Here are some highlights of this version:

New default grahics by L[one]R and Michal Zajaczkowski


New gui theme


Numpad taunts for those who need them

Fixed bugs like high cpu useage when starting a game several times


New map design for ctf_Death (Video)


Bonus screenshot of ctf_Division remake for the brave ;)

I'd like to thank everyone from the community who helped getting this release done.
Special thanks go to MrBungle and L[one]R for their last minute help. /takeoff
