It looks more stable in gameplay indeed. Still I guess we didn't get much 
closer to a stability-release :/

can you be more precise on this? moved to the server? i thought the server (or 
meta-server as i call it for not doing much) does only some routing and game

Agree. My concerns before releasing are
- all reported crash bugs
- lack of lan (?)
- lack of autosavegame (?)
- Kieran and I experienced strange minimaps yesterday. All black with a single

All do features in branches that we merge after releasing beta2.
