In this new version we have.. (drumroll)..

- New space station visuals
- Space Station spectator cam with camera control on arrow keys (nice to watch people trading..)
- Fixes and improvements to the landscape & water rendering, which means BiplaneWorld is worth a quick flyover (just need to finish the stitching..)
- Various minor fixes and improvements for space UI
- A whole lot of love

.. and a new DLC pack for space which tightens up the graphics on level 7. Oh and did I mention the new point drive?

In this client update there's a major overhaul of the graphics engine (producing a much better framerate for lower spec PCs), improvements to the sun & grass rendering and a whole bunch of bugfixes and improvements for UI, scripting and in-game world editing tools.

The 0.67.0 release expands the number of inventory item slots, skill slots and scripted variables available on the world servers. This is a breaking change - old clients won't connect to new servers (and vice versa).
World Owner Manual updates

For those of you interested in a bit of old game development, there have been lots of updates to the World Owner's Manual including a whole load of useful little server script examples in the System Functions reference.
